Liederkranz Cheese and Shrimp - Make a Sandwich

Centuries before Lonton food restrictions were drawn up, bread and cheese headed the food thrift list. These classic affinities still take top honors as the most nourishing and economical of foods and although they won their first fame as necessities of life, they now hold a high place in the epicure's food register, too. With such famous dessert cheese delicacies as Camembert Brie Swiss and Liederkranz cheese, all available with Made-in-America labels, the housewife can turn her family into cheese eaters without straining her budget.

The absence of Roquefort is now filled successfully by domestic blue cheese. Blue cheese is included in the cocktail cheese spreads. And did you know that the relish cocktail cheese spread you've been using for canapes and sandwiches gives equally delectable flavor to broiled fish when spread on just before the last five minutes of cooking?

High in protein, cheese is valued as a meat substitute, lending flavor as well as nourishment to many cooked dishes. Always cook cheese at moderate temperatures as high heat will cause the fats to decompose. To be easily digested, cooked cheese should be well done.

For meatless days, these recipes for sandwich spreads and hot main course dishes beg for a trial.
