Dairy Filled Labor Day

Although we'll be working everyday on the dairy  farm during the Labor Day weekend, I'm thinking of a few ways to have less labor in the kitchen!  Fortunately, Midwest Dairy  has a great assortment of recipes that are easy, nutritious and of course, use delicious dairy products.
 I can just taste Roasted Pimiento Cheese Spread on a croissant roll or as a toasted sandwich topped with a fresh garden tomato!

Roasted Pimiento Cheese Spread


1 tub (8 ounces) reduced fat cream cheese,softened
1/3 cup nonfat plain Greek yogurt
1 tablespoon finely chopped onion
1 package (8 ounces) finely shredded Colby-  Montery Jack Cheddar cheese
1 package (7 ounces) 2 % milkfat finely shredded  Sharp Cheddar cheese
1/4 cup roasted red peppers in water,drained and chopped
1/4 teaspoon paprika
