Details

Stripling's Old Fashioned Red Rind Hoop Cheese is mild in taste and is wonderful when served as a dessert cheese with melons, berries, and various wines. But red rind hoop cheese is also great to have on hand in the summer when the squash is coming in fresh from the fields and you feel like whipping up a yummy squash casserole. Our recipe below for Summer Squash Casserole makes an impressive main course in and of itself since the cheese and eggs give heartiness. Pair it alongside sliced fresh tomatoes, cucumbers, and other garden vegetables as well as a slice or two of homemade corn bread. *weight is approximate
