Our cheese is extremely versatile and goes way beyond a great tasting cheese sandwich. So if you fancy getting creative in the kitchen, how about trying out a couple of these recipes? Or sprinkle a little of our grated cheddar over your favourite pizza or pasta dish. You won’t regret it.
Cheese and chorizo quesadillas
8 soft flour tortillas
4 tbsp of your favourite chutney
1 chorizo, chopped and fried for about 5 minutes in oil
4 tbsp grated Parkham Cheddar
4 spring onions, trimmed and chopped
1 finely chopped red chilli
4 tbsp sour cream
Heat a frying pan with a drizzle of oil and place a tortilla into the pan. Spread a tablespoon of relish on top, then scatter with a handful of chorizo, a tablespoon of Parkham Cheddar and a sprinkling of spring onion, chilli and lime juice. Dot with three teaspoonfuls of sour cream and place another tortilla on top. Then flip it over in the pan and cook for a few more minutes or until the both sides are golden.
To serve 4 you will need:
225g grated cheese
1 tbsp butter
2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
1 tsp dry mustard
2 tsp flour
4 tbsp beer
4 slices of bread, toasted on one side
Grab a saucepan and put in the cheese, flour, mustard, Worcestershire sauce, butter and pepper. Mix well and then add the beer or milk to moisten. Be careful not to make it too runny. Stir over a gentle heat until all is melted, and once you have a thickish paste. Leave to cool before spreading the rarebit over the untoasted side of your bread. Grill until golden brown.
500ml of milk
Freshly grated nutmeg
Salt and black pepper
Place the milk, flour and butter into a medium saucepan and heat gently. Whisk while bringing to a gentle simmer. Continue to whisk until you have a smooth, glossy sauce, then simmer very gently for a few minutes. Then add the cheese and whisk again until the cheese has melted. Then season with salt, black pepper and some freshly grated nutmeg.
Try pouring this over cauliflowers and popping in the oven until cooked. Then sprinkle some grated Parkham cheddar over the top and grill until melted. Delicious.
