“Mom, for New Year’s Eve can you make that stuff that’s really good? You know, that stuff with the cheese? You put the cheese in the dough with some other stuff and then stick it in the oven. When it comes out, the cheese is melted and everybody’s happy. Well, except for that one time when Jay purposely farted on Will and a wrestling match broke out in the kitchen and they knocked the cheese on the floor. You and dad got really mad and sent everybody to their rooms.” Anna-12
If you’re looking to make some people happy this New Year’s Eve, I recommend making the following. It’s a guaranteed crowd favorite and even the biggest Dummy of the Year can make it with ease. Please keep the wrestling to a minimum, unless you plan on eating it off the kitchen floor and enjoy spending time alone in your room.
Here’s what you’ll need for your Baked Havarti…
- 8-10 oz. of Havarti Cheese
- Pillsbury Crescent Seamless Dough Sheet (you can substitute Pillsbury Crescent Rolls, just seal the perforated edges)
- Honey Dijon mustard
- Crackers and Pretzels
Preheat your oven to 375. Cut Havarti cheese in half lengthwise. Unroll the dough onto your baking dish. Spread a generous amount of mustard onto the center of the dough. Place half of the cheese onto the mustard. Spread more mustard on top of the cheese and then top with the second half of cheese. Generously spread more mustard over the entire block of cheese. Gently fold dough over the cheese and press the seams together. Bake at 375 for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown. Serve with crackers and pretzels. Enjoy!
Happy New Year!
