Sharp Cheddar American Blend and a Recipe Challenge

Land O’Lakes has added a new member to its Deli American family! We are pleased to announce the new Sharp Cheddar American Blend.

To celebrate the launch of Sharp Cheddar American Blend and its bold flavor and melty yumminess, four of our blogger friends have developed delicious summer recipes featuring our newest deli product. All of the recipes the bloggers created showcase the versatile flavors of Land O Lakes® Sharp Cheddar American Blend. See their recipes by visiting their blogs:

Here in the Test Kitchens, we’ve been having a fabulous time creating new recipes that highlight the sharper flavor of the cheese. One of our favorites is the Cheese-Stuffed Pretzel Buns (pictured above). These are easy and delicious as after-school snacks or appetizers on the deck. Frozen, ready-to-bake dinner rolls make this quick to make,and the gooey, cheesy center makes it an instant family favorite.

Sharp Cheddar American Blend is the perfect combination of Land O’Lakes® Deli American’s creamy meltability and cheddar’s naturally nutty, sharp flavor. This flavor lends itself well to almost any application, from cold and hot sandwiches to main dishes, side dishes and appetizers. It tastes great on its own or on a cracker for a super simple snack. Here are two more recipes we really like.

This Hawaiian Ham Sandwich with its sweet and savory combination of flavors is great for packing in kids’ lunches or for a summer picnic.

As if a classic BLT wasn’t yummy enough, we added a fried egg and Sharp Cheddar American Blend to make this Cheesy BLT & E perfect for a quick dinner or weekend brunch.

Look for this package in your grocery store and then try a few more of our new Sharp Cheddar American Blend summertime recipe favorites.

A huge thank you to the fabulous bloggers who participated in the program!

WHY???WHY??WHY???have both you and Kraft discontinued making AMERICAN cheese in 2 lb bulk
(not sliced) cheese? With all the recipes out there that call for this (which must mean there is a demand)
it is with great disappointment that it can no longer be found. Come on...what ever happen to giving the customer what they want vs. trying to jam new ideas at us????

Hi Jon, We appreciate your interest in LAND O LAKES® American Cheese in the 2-pound loaf. Unfortunately, this product has been discontinued and is no longer being made. Although we do not make another cheese product exactly like it, many other stores do carry LAND O LAKES® Deli American. It comes both pre-sliced in an 8-ounce shingle pack in the self-service deli area and sliced-to-order in the service deli. While we are sorry that you’re disappointed by this decision, we hope that you will enjoy the other LAND O LAKES® products that are available to you.

Very disappointed that you have dropped your sharp american cheese. It was my favorite. Now to find another deli that has a good sharp american cheese. Good luck in the future.

You are correct that the Sharp American cheese has been discontinued and is being replaced with Sharp Cheddar American cheese.
