As a member of the Benton County Farm Bureau Women's Committee one of the activities I enjoy is our annual Dairy Recipe Contest for 4-H members. Contest participants can choose to enter in the category of Main Dish, Party Idea or both. One of the qualities each recipe is judged on is the enhancement of the recipe by the use of dairy products. After the judges have tasted each dish and are deliberating on which recipes will win, everyone else gets to sample the food. This year we had a total of 22 recipes. What a feast! When my boys were in 4-H they participated in this contest many times and we had some great learning experiences. I would like to share a recipe that my sons submitted at different times for this contest--it is simple but enjoyed by our family and of course uses dairy products. Enjoy!
