John Wm. Macy's Cheesesticks for all your Parties and Holiday feasts

In October we had the opportunity to try and do a feature on John Wm. Macy's CheeseSticks.  I recently had the opportunity to use John Wm. Macy's CheeseSticks and CheeseCrisps in making great appetizers for parties and snacking this Holiday season.  Macy's Cheesesticks make it very easy to come up with great and appealing snacks. 

I promise that these combinations will be a huge hit for all of your guests and family.  The best part is as well that you can mix and match any of the combinations to your liking.

One combination that is nice is using the Melting Romano CheeseCrisps with a cherry tomato on the Cheese Crisp with baby mozzarella on top of the tomato topped with a sprig of fresh parsley.  To take it up another step place all the ingredients on the CheeseCrisp but the parsley and place in on a cookie sheet.  Broil in your over for a few minutes till the mozzarella is slightly melted and browned.  Top with your fresh parsley.  For those that don't like tomatoes you can leave them out. 

 For those that love artichokes this next combination is wonderful.  Using Macy's Sesame Gruyere CheeseCrisps place a sundried tomato on the CheeseCrisp followed with a sliced artichoke heart or a piece topped with a black olive cut in half.  If you love artichoke hearts I suggest the bigger the piece the better.  Don't be afraid to buy artichoke hearts in seasoning.  It will give it additional flavoring.  If you are wanting to really experiment add a slice of Gruyere cheese in with the sundried tomato and artichoke and top with the black olive.

For a sweet and rich flavoring combines try using the Asiago CheeseCrips with Stilton cheese directly on the CheeseCrisp followed by walnuts and topped with Greek honey.  Stilton has a sharp rich flavor which when combined with the sweet of the honey makes a wonderful combination for your taste buds.  Toasting the walnuts before and then adding them warm to the Stilton and CheeseCrisp also adds a different flavor to this combination.

If you are anything like me though and love cheese and meat platters any of the CheeseStick or CheeseCrisp go with them.  One of my favorite cheese is Brie and with any of the CheeseCrisp make for a great snack.  By placing different cheeses, meats and pickles on a platter with an assortment of CheeseSticks and CheeseCrisps allows everyone to make their own fun combinations.  I have found myself even at night snacking on CheeseCrisps topped with a homemade cheeseball. 

 There are many more combinations to try and I would love to know which ones you all enjoy and prefer.  

I hope that this Christmas season that you may enjoy being with friends and loved ones and hope that you can make John Mn.Macy's products a part of your dishes.
