Anderson Erickson Family Favorite Recipes

Our delicious recipes are made with the goodness of AE Dairy products, and treasured by our family. Over the years we have enjoyed sharing our recipes and love hearing how theyʼve become favorites for so many other families. We hope your family enjoys these recipes as much as we do!

  • Fresh lemons, buttermilk and juicy strawberries combine for low fat creaminess in a pie shell.
  • AE Ranch Dip punches up this “low-bake” appetizer with bold flavor and creaminess. Think of it as a crudité platter on a pizza crust! Outstanding!
  • AE Classic (Plain) Greek Yogurt is a great addition to creamy salad dressings and can be used in place of higher calorie ingredients such as heavy cream. The curry powder and grapes give this chicken salad a spicy-sweet flavor dimension. Curry powders vary in heat levels, so taste test yours before using.
  • Chocolate, peanut butter and bananas - the perfect trio for an a.m. refuel or late night snack.
  • Green chilies give this creamy, cheesy breakfast casserole a Southwestern twist.
  • Moist buttermilk cake topped with strawberries in cream. Guaranteed to disappear!
  • Pizza for breakfast? Yes! This new take on an egg bake fills French bread with the classic Italian flavors of tomatoes, basil and mozzarella and creamy AE Cottage Cheese. We love that it’s vegetarian, but a little cooked Italian sausage sprinkled inside is a delicious option too.
  • AE Buttermilk and Cottage Cheese team up to give this simple salad dressing a farm-fresh tang.
  • A touch of AE Hot Jalapeño Mexican Style Dip gives these cheesy vegetable quesadillas a spicy kick that sets them apart from the rest. Play around with the vegetables according to what’s on hand—try sliced mushrooms or diced zucchini!
  • A cross between a muffin and a crustless quiche, these are tasty protein fuel made with AE Cottage Cheese for a "Grab and Go" breakfast or sit-down brunch. The fresh tomato relish makes them company worthy and using a blend of roasted corn and peppers adds a delicious flavor layer.
  • Oatmeal gets a spring and summer makeover with the cool, creamy delicious flavors of AE Lemon Yogurt combined with strawberries (in three forms)! Make this the night before and mix it up by swapping out the lemon yogurt for another flavor.
  • Creamy AE Cottage Cheese adds protein to this vegetable-packed quiche. We like using shiitake mushrooms best because they don’t give off as much moisture as button mushrooms. If using button mushrooms, be sure to sauté them thoroughly so the quiche isn’t runny. The fresh flavor of the tomato salsa is a must-have!
  • Blueberry pancakes with a creamy, protein twist.
  • Fresh mango and lime juice pair up with AE Classic (Plain) Greek Yogurt for a refreshing, protein-packed smoothie a.k.a. 'a tropical retreat in a glass'.
  • AE Whipping Cream + 4 ingredients make this rich and smooth hot fudge sauce delicious and easy! The perfect topping for homemade ice cream made with Sara Ann Vanilla Ice Cream Mix.
  • AE Buttermilk gives this chocolate cake added flavor and moistness, while a touch of malted milk powder in the frosting adds delicious depth. A piece of this cake begs to be served with a big, cold glass of AE Milk!
  • Fresh lemon juice and lemon peel join forces with AE Lemon Yogurt to create this “edible sunshine” in cake form. It just cries out for a dollop of AE Whipped Cream and a few fresh berries on the side.
  • Potatoes get the royal treatment with dairy creaminess from four of our AE favorites, including Dip and Cottage Cheese
  • Homemade vanilla ice cream is now just a few simple steps away with AE’s Sara Ann’s Vanilla Ice Cream Base. Bring on summer!
  • Curry, cayenne and cottage (cheese, that is) combine in this picnic staple update.
  • Ditch the straw and grab a spoon instead for this new twist on the ever-popular smoothie! Here a super-thick smoothie is served in a bowl and sprinkled with fruit and crunchy toppers. It makes a refreshing (and gorgeous) dessert too.
