Arla Dofino cheese, are free of added hormones and crafted with quality ingredients in an environmentally friendly way in Wisconsin. When parents are looking for a way to keep hormones and other additives out of their families diet, it’s a great time to check out Arla Dofino cheese. I received Arla Dofino’s Havarti, Gouda, and Edam cheese to review with our family.
It’s been a rather chilly summer here but we are not complaining, today it is a whole 60 degrees out and it’s July, yes, this is not the normal weather by now we are having a heat wave! So it was a perfect time to make some Edam Cheese Soup and a great sub to go with it for dinner. I have to say that we have not eaten Edam Cheese before so I was pretty excited to try it. It was a big hit with the family, they all loved it. It wasn’t hard to make either, I had the soup made in about 45 minutes and the kids just loved it as did I. It has a sharp cheddar flavor that the Edam cheese offers. The Sub was so easy to make as well I used the Havarti cheese on the sub with Ham, Turkey and Salami with lettuce, Tomato, mustard and Mayo. It had an amazing flavor with the Havarti cheese on the sub. The Havarti cheese would be amazing on a Turkey wrap for lunch or other sandwiches as it’s Deli Cheese slices.
