Every month, Laura of How to Cook good food and I think hard about what ingredient to propose for our monthly One Ingredient Challenge. Every month we cross our fingers that people will link stuff up. And as happens every month, the Cheese recipes are an absolute treat. From starters to dessert, from breakfast to supper there are suggestions here that will inspire all the cheese lovers amongst you.
Firstly an inventive dish from the wonderful Claire at Under the Blue Gum Tree – Smoked Cheddar and Apple Omelette. I love smoked cheddar and this combination with cooked apple must make for a more interesting filling than the usual cheese plus onion/tomato etc!
Karen at Lavender and Lovage always has a wonderful story to tell and gorgeous pictures. Here her Cheese and Onion Scone Bread looks like a perfect teatime treat with butter or a great accompaniment to soup.
I made a Cheese and Onion bread too – this Fougasse uses Comte, along with red onion and Rosemary. A pretty quick and easy bread that you could eat straight as it is.
More bread from Mich at A Piece of cake – this cheddar and corn bread that would be perfect with soup, particularly any Mexican inspired soup I think.
Kellie presents these English Muffins with Cheese and black pepper. A perfect savoury treat for any time of day but for me a breakfast bake is planned of these babies!
And these bacon and 3 cheese scones (dolcelatte, grana padano and mature cheddar) from Helen at the Crazy Kitchen must have a great flavour with such strong and interesting cheeses in them. Helen always comes up with great family Friendly recipes and this one is no exception.
Jacqueline at How to be a gourmand is a blog to salivate over. Gorgeous recipes, beautiful photos and stories from Hong Kong where she largely spends her time. This twice baked cheddar and Chive souffle is mighty impressive.
Louisa at Chez Foti made this wonderful Roasted mushroom and pearl barley risotto – a comfort dish that uses pearl barley instead of rice and must be super filling and lower GI as a result.
And more comfort food in this pasta dish from Katharine – Pasta with Ricotta and Roasted red pepper that is simple yet perfect for spring.
And if you like pesto with your pasta how about this pesto variation using foraged young dandelion leaves from Sarah at the Garden Deli
Now for a healthy cheesy treat, why not try one of Karen of Lavender and Lovage’s recipes that fits into the 5:2 diet regime – roasted moroccan vegetable and feta cheese salad. Another blog with amazing pictures.
And how about this Anchovy and Purple Sprouting brocolli tart from Louisa at Chez Foti for a summery lunch on the patio….
This Chocolate and Goat cheese tart from the lovely Choclette would make a great dessert or afternoon tea. I rather like mild goat cheese and have been planning to use it in a dessert as I imagine it must work well with chocolate and pastries.
and more sweet deliciousness from Caroline Makes with this Martha Stewart inspired Apricot Cheesecake. Yum!
And finally my co-host of the One Ingredient Challenge, Laura made this Onion, Cider and Double Cheddar Soup (with Smoked as well as normal cheddar).
Now May’s Challenge that Laura is hosting is for ASPARAGUS recipes. Do go over and link up if you cook something with that delicious vegetable!
