Tillamook Comes to Atlanta!
This week, we had the PLEASURE of attending a few Tillamook events celebrating their arrival to the Atlanta area. If you aren’t familiar with Tillamook, it’s time you learn about them STAT. Truth be told, we’ve been eating Tillamook grilled cheeses at lunch for the last month or so - and feel bad holding out on you. So run, don’t walk, to your nearest Publix or one of these retailers, to grab your new favorite cheese.
But back to the reason for this blog post - to discuss how unbelievably delicious the Pimento Cheese Wontons were at the events this week. Of course, they’re made with the one and only, Tillamook. We even had the opportunity to make our own Pimento Cheese Wontons. Our second favorite: the Cheddar Grits. Y’all, if you’re a grits girl, and you probably are, you have to make the recipe below. Sure to love it.
