Pilgrims Choice have a new range of Cheddar Crumbles, 4mm cubes of diced cheese designed for the perfect melt. With three varieties: Mature, Mature with Black Pepper and Extra Mature with Breadcrumbs and Herbs, they can transform fridge staples into a tasty meal.
I was challenged to give the Crumbles a try and come up with some recipe ideas using everyday ingredients. The Crumbles with Black Pepper or with Breadcrumbs and Herbs add a twist to meals, while the convenient ready to use cheese pieces save time and effort in the kitchen.
Mushroom and Spinach Pie with Cheesy Crumb Topping
1 sheet of puff pastry
1 red onion chopped
1 clove garlic
8 oz button mushroom sliced
160 g of fresh baby spinach
3 tablespoons Hummus
Half a pack of Pilgrims Choice Crumbles with Breadcrumbs and Herbs
Fry the onions in a little oil until softened.
Add the crushed garlic, spinach and mushrooms until cooked through.
Put the puff pastry sheet on a baking tray.
Spread the hummus over the base.
Spoon the filling on top.
Fold the edges of the pastry over.
Glaze with a little milk or egg.
Sprinkle Crumbles on the top.
Cook at GM6 for approx. 20-25 minutes.
You can also use the same filling to stuff large open cup mushrooms (just whizz through a food processor along with 2 slices of wholemeal bread processed into crumbs) and top with Crumbles. Cook for about 20 minutes at GM6.
