Keeping your children happy is pretty much impossible when it comes to food. The path to their tummies is a dangerous one, laden with foods that they don’t want to eat or are sick of. The problem is, most children refuse to follow a healthy diet that is otherwise necessary for their growth and development. It’s almost impossible to convince a child to eat his or her veggies, especially when there are so many other tempting sweet treats for them to eat. The media isn’t helping our case either. Most ads for foods are about bonbons and sweet. If it were up to kids, they’d be eating nothing but Ice Cream and Popcorn Kernels, and we’d have a Cake Stand, Popcorn Popper, and Chocolate Fountain in every room.
However, today we’ve decided to share one of the ways with which you can make tasty food that’s also very healthy. Your children won’t suspect anything when they eat this. We’re talking about none other than Cheese and Nougat spread. A delicious recipe that is sure to keep your children wanting more. The main trick here is to not tell them what it’s actually made of otherwise they might refrain from eating it in the future.
If you’re not familiar with cheese and nougat spread, then you’re in for a real treat. It’s a simple, yet very delicious spread combo that’s spiced with minced garlic. You can choose any sort of bread you fancy, though we found that this works very well with a baguette, preferably a wide one.
Well, “what’s so special about it?” you might ask. It’s a wonderful combination of baked bread and a tough cheese spread. It has a satisfying crunchy texture along with a bit of a sour note which makes for an interesting taste. It’s simply irresistible.
And now, without further ado, let us tell you about the ingredients you’ll need.
For the ingredients, here’s what you’ll need
- 300 grams of soft sour cheese
- 20 grams of Hazelnuts
- 20 grams of Walnuts
- Two cloves of garlic
- One tablespoon of Basil
- Half a tablespoon of hot cayenne pepper
- Half a tablespoon of salt (you do need your Salt and Pepper Grinder Set)
Once you have all of the aforementioned ingredients, here’s how you prepare the cheese and nougat spread:
Preparing the Recipe
First of all, put all the nuts in a pan and fry them on medium heat for about 10 minutes. You’ll need them to be crunchy and tasty at the same time. After you’ve got them all readied up, you’re going to grind them.
Then you’re going to cut the garlic into tiny pieces and combine it with basil.
After that, put the cheese into the bowl, along with the rest of the ingredients you’ve just mixed and mix them all together. Make sure you mix them well. When you’re done mixing, leave it to cool off on the Cooling Rack for a bit.
When it comes for the kind of bread to use, you can use any type you want. We’ve tried using baguettes, and it has worked very well in combination with this recipe. However, it isn’t the only option you have. You can even use this spread as a dip for smaller snacks if you so desire. Just keep your Bread Box, Bread Cloche, Bread Knife, and Bread Slicer nearby, and you’ll be good to go.
Now that you know how to make cheese and nougat spread, we hope you put it to good use and see how your children react to it. We can almost guarantee you that they’ll like it. Doesn’t matter if they hate garlic, basil, nuts, or any of the ingredients of this recipe, they will eat it like there’s no tomorrow. We guarantee that they’ll forget that you have a Donut Maker, Waffle Maker, Crepe Maker, or Soda Makers in the house! That’s what makes it such a great recipe; it’s an unlikely combination that makes for a unique taste. Happy cooking and bon appétit!
