White Cheddar Bundt Dinner #FWCon #WisconsinCheese

I'm just crazy about white cheddar cheese, especially #WisconsinCheese these days!  It's become my absolute favorite go to ingredient to whip up something marvelous and easy when everyone is famished!
When easy is really important I also go to eggs as my main protein source....hey you almost always have eggs in the fridge right?  Eggs like chicken can be used a million ways...well maybe not quite a million but just about and this White Cheddar Bunt Dinner is one of my top favorites!

Anyway back to this White Cheddar Bundt Dinner family absolute loves it and I'm thinking yours will too! 

Before we get to the recipe itself I want to give a shout out to the Food and Wine Conference July 17-19 in beautiful Orlando! This is, in my opinion, THE best of the food blogger get togethers!  There will be amazing speakers, the chance to learn how to better our blogs, market ourselves,  taste great food and get the chance to meet in person; what can be better than that! Go take a look at all the happy faces toasting the conference on the home page of the web site and while there take a look around and see all that is in store!

Feeling creative yet?  Well if you are, enter this contest is open to all conference attendees and boy oh boy the prizes are having your conference paid for! Go for it!  I can't wait to see what you create and I look forward to meeting up at the conference!  GOOD LUCK!

PS.....IF you have any leftovers they are perfect to send for lunch or even a grab and go breakfast!  I think that makes it triple easy!
