Goat Cheese Mac & Cheese

mac_cheese gradedcheese

I make a mean delicious gourmet Macaroni and cheese. It is easy with Old Windmill Dairy cheese from Estancia, New Mexico. You can find their awesome cheeses at the Santa Fe Farmers market (Railyard), Albuqeruqe Growers Market and Railyard Market.

1. 1 lb of cooked macaroni

2 5oz tubs of any goat cheese from Old Windmill Dairy. I like using their Country Thyme (Sage, Time and Garlic Goat Cheese or Sundried Tomatoe or Pesto and Pine Nuts).

or

2 5oz tubs of their cream cheese/fromage. I recommend either Fromage Blanc with herbs (Rosemary and Garlic) or Heart of Chile which has Artichoke hearts and Green Chile.

1/2 of lb of graded cheese. Old Windmill Dairy makes a really nice goat cheddar called McIntosh. The other option to consider is either their Sandia Sunrise Goat Milk Smoked Gouda or their Smoked Cows Milk gouda.

casserole

1/3 cup of milk

4 tablespoons of butter. Old Windmill Dairy has awesome butter too.

Mix up the cream cheese or chevre into the warm cooked pasta. Even out in a 9 x 10′ baking dish. Poor the milk evenly over the top. Place dolups of butter over the tub. Cover with your choice of graded cheese.

Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 30 minutes or until golden bubbly brown. Then serve.

Turtle Supreme Chevre Pie

TurtleSupremeGoatCheesepie

If you visited the farm over Easter weekend you may have wondered what is in that amazing pie. It is simple as the Old Windmill Dairy has made it easy with Turtle Supreme. It is an amazing desert chevre that has white chocolate, goat cheese, milk chocolate, caramel and pecans. Just put the chevre in a graham cracker crust, garnish with more pecans and serve. No baking required.

Easter Egg Hunt and Farm Tour

Easter&Ed     It is a special time of year to see families come together and share the joy of their children.  It is an honor for us to put this on every year. Michael and I enjoy seeing the children scatter as they off to find their treats at the Easter Egg Hunt. We bring baby chicks to the farm so children can have the experience of petting baby chickens. Last year we started a simple hay ride, which lit up children faces.

I am going to try and make these cute deviled eggs:

Hatching-Chick-Deviled-Eggs

You can add a tablespoon of Fromage Blanc or Country Thyme in the egg yolk with mayonaise to make  a different deviled egg. I am going to try to make these for our Easter Event.

Something fun to do with your children.

Queso Fondido Old Windmill Dairy Style


Recipe of the Week.
Queso Fondido Old Windmill Dairy Style

Real quick, just a couple of tips/reminders:

* The skillet will be very hot, so be sure to wrap the handle in a cloth and tell your guests that it’s a hottie.

* Be sure to watch it in the oven to make sure the cheese doesn’t “overcook.”

* I can’t emphasize enough the importance of serving this piping hot right out of the oven! It changes pretty quickly as it starts to cool, and you want to experience maximum meltiness.

You’ll love this, guys!

Here’s the handy dandy printable.

Recipe

Queso Fundido

Prep Time: 10 Minutes
Cook Time: 20 Minutes
Servings:  12

Ingredients

  • 1/2 pound Hot Breakfast Green Chile Sausage from Red Mesa Meats (Santa Fe Farmers Market)
  • 1 whole Medium Onion, Finely Diced
  • 2 whole SMALL Bell Peppers (any Color Combination), Seeded And Finely Diced
  • 3/4 pound Old Windmill Dairy Cheddar
  • 1 tub of Old Windmill Dairy Heart of Chile Cream cheese
  • Sprinkle Of Chili Powder
  • 3 whole Roma Tomatoes, Diced
  • 1/4 cup Cilantro, Chopped
  • Tortilla Chips For Serving

Preparation Instructions

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

In a large skillet, cook and crumble the sausage until brown. Remove from skillet and drain on a paper towel. Pour off any excess fat. Add onions and bell peppers to the skillet and cook over medium-high heat until the veggies are soft and golden brown, about 7-8 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.

To build the skillet, place 1/3 of the cheese in a medium-sized ovenproof skillet. Add half the sausage. Add another third of the cheese, then as much of the veggie mixture as you’d like (you may have a little left over.) Add almost all of the remaining cheese, the rest of the sausage, then whatever cheese you have left. Sprinkle the top very lightly with chili powder.

NOTE: Depending on the size of your skillet or baking dish, you may have some ingredients left over. Just build so that the ingredients roughly reach the top of the skillet; they’ll shrink quite a bit once the cheese melts!

Place into the oven and start watching it about 4 to 5 minutes in. You want to bake it until the cheese is totally melted, hot, and slightly bubbling…but before the cheese starts to firm up/harden. Its best when the cheese is slightly brown on the edge of the skillet and ooey gooey!

Remove from the oven, top with the diced tomatoes, sprinkle on the tomatoes, and serve immediately with blue corn chips!

NOTE: Be sure to have everything ready so you can serve the queso fundido pretty much right out of the oven. It’s best when piping hot!

IMPORTANT: Use a pot holder to remove skillet

Beer & Cheese Pairing

ponderosabrew    It is that time of year again were we launch our Beer and Cheese pairing at local artisan breweries. It is amazing to me how beer and cheese pair so well together. For instance our McIntosh cave aged goat cheese pairs fantastically with an IPA. When the flavors combine the hoppyness of the beer is refined and the citrus tones of the cheese become robust. Other natural pairing include smoked gouda and stouts. I can’t wait to see what Devan I put together for your tasting. We are sure not to disappoint.
