I’ll kick proceedings off with the first recipe that I blogged following my trip to France. Comté Cheese and Potato Rosti Waffles. Far too good to save only for Waffle Wednesdays. Charlotte’s Lively Kitchen has also used Comté cheese in her Cheese Straws made with homemade flaky pastry and extra flavours of chilli, chive and sun-dried tomato & olive. Blogging duo Lost in Food who like me are based in Aberdeenshire share a recipe for Croque Madam which is a satisfying lunch or perfect weekend brunch option. Whilst you’ve got the waffle make out do try Kate’s Sweet Potato Waffles. She’s topped them with cheese shards for a showstopping crunch.
Both my kids have always loved cheese and its a popular option in family friendly meals. Elizabeth says that her child-friendly lasagne with cheddar cheese sauce will please even the fussiest of eaters. Clare’s Cheesy Stuffed Jacket Potatoes are so easy and perfect for adults & kids alike. Eb has pimped up Mac n Cheese with her Leek and Bacon Macaroni Cheese. Creamy, cheesy macaroni with salty, smoky bacon and sweet, buttery leeks, all topped with the crunchiest, crispest panko breadcrumb topping and extra cheese. What about cheese in soup? Jenny has combined vegetables that love each other as well as lots of melted cheese in her Leek and Cauliflower Cheese Soup.
When it comes to a scone (rhymes with gone) I’ll opt for cheese every time but please don’t offer me jam with it – what’s that all about?! Julie’s Easy Cheddar Cheese Scones are delicious simply served with salted butter. Meanwhile Choclette promises us the best cheesy garlic scones you will ever eat. Her Wild Garlic Cheese Scones are light and delicious with a swirl of green wild garlic pesto running through them.
Beer and Cheese are clearly a match made in heaven according to Jenny and Andrea. I’m loving the sound of Beer & Bacon Pasta Cheese. Sheer unadulterated comfort food for indulgent moments when only a carb fest will do! The Petite Cook’s Cheesy Parmesan Beer Muffins are perfect for a grab-and-go snack or make-ahead lunchbox option – Super fluffy, packed with flavors and no butter or eggs required. Also perfect for picnics and lunchboxes are Jane’s Cheese and Chive Pasties. She’s a Cornish girl so you’re getting the real deal with these. Lastly a recipe that one of my favourite cheese eaters would love. Angela’s vegetarian Wensleydale Cheese Tarts are super easy to make and can be made ahead of time. They’d definitely get the seal of approval from Wallace (of Wallace & Gromit fame!)
