Labor Day Cheese Selection

Tubby

It's Labor Day weekend! We've put together a great selection to meet your holiday snacking needs.

Welcome back, Tubby! Spring Brook Farm makes this Alpine-style cheese from their raw Jersey cow's milk. They then send it to Crown Finish Caves in Brooklyn, where it spends a year aging in their underground caves and developing its rich, savory flavors. A robust 30 pound wheel, Tubby is full of the classic nutty notes you expect from an Alpine, along with bright, tropical fruit notes.

Oreder here for pick up or delivery!

We’re also taking pre-orders for Mini Trays, an individual tray of our 5 featured cheeses. Available for pick up Friday and Saturday.

 

 



Memorial Day Cheese

With Memorial Day approaching, beer and cheese probably already factors heavily into your weekend plans. We thought we'd help you take care of both!

Redneck Cheddar, from the Veldhuizen Family Farm in Dublin, Texas, is your perfect cookout cheese. The Veldhuizens pour beer from Houston’s Spindletap Brewery over the curds before making them into raw milk cheddar. The beer infusion gives Redneck Cheddar a delicate malty note. It melts well and makes a great topping for burgers!

Available here for online/curbside orders and in our store!

We’re also taking pre-orders for Pretzel Buns! Available for pick up Friday and Saturday.

Simple, Creamy Mac & Cheese Recipe

Mac & Cheese

At Dairymaids we have breakfast together every Saturday. This Mac & Cheese, which we adapted from an Alton Brown recipe, has become a Saturday morning staple. A stovetop preparation, it is simple and very quick.

For cheese you can grate up whatever you may have on hand (cow’s milk cheeses in the cheddar and Alpine categories melt best). If you were to choose just one, we currently recommend the Cowgirl Creamery Wagon Wheel, which is available in the needed size on our online site: https://houstondairymaids.square.site/

Simple, Creamy Mac & Cheese

Serves 6

½ pound short pasta (elbow macaroni, cavatappi, etc.)

4 tablespoons butter

2 eggs

6 ounces evaporated milk

½ teaspoon hot sauce

1 teaspoon salt

Fresh ground black pepper

½ teaspoon dry mustard

10 ounces Wagon Wheel or other firm cheese, grated

 

1. Cook pasta to al dente in a large pot of boiling, salted water. Drain.

2. Return pasta to pot. Add butter and stir until melted.

3. In separate bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, hot sauce, dry mustard, salt and pepper.

4. Add milk mixture to pasta. Add grated cheese.

5. Stir over low heat until cheese melts and sauce is thick and creamy. About 3 minutes.
