Cheese Plate Assortment3
8 ounces Aged Gouda
8 ounces Spanish Manchego
8 ounces English Blue Stilton
10-12 ounces Delice de Bourgogne Triple Crème Brie
8 ounces Formaggio* Marinated Fresh Mozzarella Balls
Crackers or fresh bread
Fresh or dried fruits and nuts
1. Bring all hard cheeses to room temperature by removing from refrigeration
1-2 hours before serving. Arrange the cheese wedges on a cheese plate.
A piece of slate or marble, a serving tray or a cutting board will also work.
2. Approximately 30 minutes before serving, remove the soft cheeses
from refrigeration. Arrange on the cheese plate.
3. Serve with crackers or bread. Garnish with fresh or dried fruits and
nuts. Makes 8-12 servings.
Tip: A well-assembled cheese plate can be the perfect appetizer before a
casual dinner with friends, or the perfect complement to the dessert
course at a formal dinner. A combination of hard cheeses and soft cheeses
will make a great cheese plate. To distinguish hard cheeses from soft
cheeses, press lightly with your thumb—hard cheeses hold no mark.

1/2 cup Kirkland Signature Shredded Grana Padano Parmesan Cheese
1. Preheat oven to 400°F.
2. Pour cheese in 6 mounds on a lightly greased or parchment-lined baking
sheet, leaving space between them to allow room for spreading.
3. Bake for 3-5 minutes, or until golden brown.
4. Cool completely. Makes 6 servings.
Tip: While they are still warm, the crisps can be molded over an upside-down
cup or glass to create “serving bowls” perfect for Caesar salads, pasta or risotto.
