The Cheesiest & Squeakiest Holidays Ever

*We had the amazing opportunity to enjoy some complimentary varieties of cheese curds from WW Homestead Dairy here in 2020. We were honored to come up with some fantastic dishes and the views expressed are always of our own. Let’s gallivant!

It’s 106 miles from Waukon, we have 12 bags of curds, 24oz of cottage cheese, it’s sunset and we’re in the Driftless…….Hit it! (I’d like to thank the Blues Brothers for helping me with this opening line) The holiday season is right around the corner and these could be the perfect stocking stuffers you’ve been look for!

Waukon, IA: Allamakee County

The Cheese Curd Capital of Iowa! WW Homestead Dairy is always a road trip away in its cheesy majesty of Waukon, but we also know during these times a sudden getaway may be a little further down the road. That doesn’t mean you can’t get a much awaited package at your front door of these delicious curds. That’s right. Get a squeaky delivery from WW Homestead Dairy! Here’s what we made in our kitchen from the big box of curds that arrived at our house and you’ll see that we had no problem coming up with some squeaky ideas.
