Back to School and Work!

The holiday season is now well and truly over. The sunny days are giving way to autumnal scenes and the routine of work and school has begun in full swing. You often hear people say that they are ready for it again. After all, we quite like rhythm.

Rhythm we often keep with food too. Just look at breakfast, lunch and dinner. And most people also have set times for a snack. In that respect, cheese is of course very versatile! After all, you could consume it at all these times.

In the canteen, the lunch boxes open and it is always a treat to see what someone else has brought. Sometimes this is accompanied by slight jealousy because someone else has brought delicious snacks. But the beauty of this is that you can inspire each other.

Our recipe page also features all kinds of dishes with our delicious cheeses. Appetisers from large to small. And on our Instagram, tasty snacks regularly appear. We like to share our cheese with you and give you new ideas of what is possible.

And to return to the title of this blog; 'back to school' / 'back to work', I would like to share a few delicious combinations that you can easily take with you in your lunchbox. Just on a toothpick for example.

  1. Fenugreek cheese & pear pieces
    This cheese has a nutty flavour, similar to walnuts. And that combines fantastically with pear.

  2. Goat's cheese & pineapple
    The combination of the sweet-sour fruit, together with the mild but full flavour of our goat cheese is one of my favourites.

  3. Aged sheep cheese with dark chocolate
    We recently tested it again ourselves, but the sweet yet earthy flavour of the chocolate goes very nicely with the characteristic taste of the old cheese.

So now should you want to put something different in that tin yourself, try these combos as snacks!

Tasty garlic cheese sandwich

2 pers
15 min

This sandwich is simple but so delicious! Preparation: Toast the bread. Meanwhile, cut the onion rings and fry them in the pan until they are soft and discoloured.  Mix the honey mustard with the mayonnaise and spread one side of the buns with the mixture. Divide lamb's lettuce among the slices of bread and top with the cheese.  Then add the grilled pepper and over that the onion rings.  Sprinkle with some chopped walnuts and top with the ungreased slices of bread.  Cut the sandwich and then secure it with a skewer. If you cut it twice, it will be extra high.  Divide between 2 plates and your simple but delicious sandwich is ready. Enjoy!

Making sandwich with grilled chicken and cheese

4 pers
30 min

Delectable sandwiches with grilled chicken, a delicious apricot spread, tomato, mayo, lettuce, avocado and our delicious young Gouda cheese. Truly a top combination! Preparation: Flatten the chicken breast and cut into 2 pieces. Mix the herbs with the olive oil and roll the chicken in it. Grill the chicken in a grill pan or in a contact grill until nicely browned and cooked on both sides. Toast the casino sandwiches in a toaster, oven or contact grill until nice and crispy.  Spread the first sandwich with the apricot dip, top with some lettuce and then the chicken. Spread a second sandwich with mayo and top with cheese, tomato and avocado slices. Sprinkle with a little salt and pepper. Place this sandwich on top of the first and put the third sandwich on top. Carefully cut diagonally until you have two triangles. Then cut these triangles again into 2 smaller triangles and insert a skewer so it sticks together nicely.   @Ellouisacooking made these sandwiches for us, and we are definitely going to try this recipe ourselves! Thank you ;-)
