When my doorbell rings unexpectedly during the holiday season it usually is followed by a neighbor delivering cookies or a friend dropping by their family card. Most days that unexpected doorbell ring makes me want to run and hide because I’m not prepared with an easy holiday entertaining plan for our home. This year we are ready! The easy burlap table runner I made and Kaukauna® cheese products from Kroger have me feeling prepared for surprise visitors. A quick port wine cheddar and bacon recipe is perfect for entertaining all year long and can be made with just three ingredients.

Cut the burlap to the desired table runner size. I just cut the piece in half to make our runner. Glue trim along the edges the entire length of the table runner.
