Seasonal Snacks with Smoked Cheese:
Most of the time I cook straightforward family meals. But, Christmas is coming and I decided it would be great to have some ‘nibbles’ – things I could leave out for Santa -0r (more probably) enjoy myself with a glass of wine or a beer. So, trying to be creative, I thought I would rustle up some interesting nibbles that we all would like using the Applewood cheese I was sent. The Applewood Spreadable is a really versatile item as it allows you to blend in other items to create a nice cheesy mix without being ‘stringy’ to eat. It also tastes great.
So using a handful of seasonal items and a tub of Applewood Spreadable cheese, I set about creating my nibbles.
The ability to grab a pack of jus-rol pastry makes creating little snacks, appetisers or starters very simple, and well within the abilities of a Dad like myself.
If you want then to stand out, then make sure you have egg white or oil on hand to glaze the parcels before going into the oven. Without any glaze you get a ‘snow’ effect from the pastry, which is seasonal and festive, but not for all year around. My Applewood smoked cheese Christmas parcels might not look quite like the ones you see in the shops but they did taste delicious.
