2 pers
20 min

First, start beating the eggs with a fork in a bowl and add a few pinches of salt. We add the diced cheese and tuna cream, begin to amalgamate everything. Now in a pan heat enough olive oil and when it is hot enough we pour the mixture inside. We cook over low heat with a lid. Before turning the omelette we add the sliced ham and crumbled taralli, let it cook for another 5 minutes. With the help of the lid, turn the omelette over and cook it on the other side, still over low heat. We can serve at the table with some taralli, the remaining diced cheese and the tuna cream with pistachios. Excellent as an appetizer or delicious at brunch or lunch.

Dutch pancakes with cheese

4 pers
30 min

Preparation Pancake batter:  Put the flour in a large mixing bowl and stir in a pinch of salt. Make a well in the middle and break the eggs over it. Pour in about ¼ of the milk and mix with a whisk or mixer to a smooth batter. Add the rest of the milk a little at a time while mixing. Baking: Heat a little butter in a frying pan and let it melt. Pour or scoop some batter into the pan (about 1 tablespoon) and let it flow over the whole surface. Then move the pan gently up and down to make sure the pancake is loose. Turn it over and fry the other side until lightly browned. Turn it over again and sprinkle with cheese, put a lid on the pan and let the cheese melt for another minute.  You can serve the pancake immediately, or bake a whole stack. There are various ways of making the perfect cheese pancake: - Bake one side of the pancake, turn it over, put cheese on top and bake it. Cheese does not bake, but sticks to the stack on the next pancake. - If necessary, bake one side first, turn over, cheese on top and turn over again to bake the cheese. This way the cheese gets nice and crispy (be careful that it does not burn on in the pan). - Bake one side of the pancake, turn it over and cover half of it with cheese. Then fold the pancake in half and bake both sides. The cheese does not burn or stick to the stack of other pancakes. - Put a thin layer of pancake batter in the pan. Wait a moment and then put the cheese slices on top. When the cheese has melted a bit, put another layer of pancake batter on top. Now you can flip the pancake when the top layer has hardened a little. Pancakes are delicious with apple syrup, strawberry jam, but also with spinach or bacon.

60 min

Instructions: Preparation: Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit (180 degrees Celsius).  Slice the white portion of the leek into half rings and wash thoroughly.  Peel and thinly slice the potatoes.  Blanch the slices of potato in boiling water.  Make a bechamel sauce by melting butter in a saucepan and slowly adding the flour.  Once a paste is formed, whisk in the milk.  Layer the blanched potato slices in a glass oven dish, pouring a portion of the bechamel sauce, sweet jalapeno dip, and sliced leek over each layer.  Top with more sweet jalapeno dip, pepper, and crumbled sheep cheese.  Bake in the oven until golden brown (approx. 30 minutes).

Sheep cheese fondue

4 pers
30 min

Instructions: Preparation: Finely grate sheep cheese.  Finely slice the shallot and heat in a saucepan on medium heat.  Lower the heat and add the grated cheese in stages.  Make sure to heat the cheese slowly, to avoid a stringy or chewy texture.  Meanwhile, make a porridge with the corn starch and white wine and pour this into the melted cheese.  The corn starch coats the fats and proteins in the melted cheese, preventing the cheese and wine from separating. A la minute: As a finishing touch, add the pineapple ginger dip. Tasty to dip: Carrot/Radish/Cauliflower/Cucumber/Bread Attention! Cheese fondue becomes thicker the longer it sits on the table and cools.

Pasta with Black Sheep Cheese

4 pers
75 min

Preparation Peel the garlic and crush or cut it. Cut the crust of the sheep's cheese with a sharp knife. Remove the crust from the cheese. Hollow out the sheep's cheese and store this. Keep about half of these chunks of sheep's cheese for another time in an oven dish, on a croissant or over the tortillia chips. A la minute Melt the other half of the sheep's cheese with a gas burner (which you use for creme brulee, for example) and extinguish it with a dash of cognac, making the cheese delicious "flambé". Melt the mixture into a nice cheese sauce and melt the cheese generously: the melted cheese provides the amount of cheese sauce you want through the spaghetti. Add the garlic and the Henri Willig roasted tomato dip and stir well. Meanwhile, cook the spaghetti according to the instructions on the packaging. Add the cooked spaghetti directly to the cheese sauce in the hollowed out cheese and spoon it through. Garnish with fresh sage. Side dish A delicious tomato salad with large cheese crumbs completes it all. Tip The hollowed out cheese can be processed several times. If you want to give a great live spaghetti demonstration at your table, make it for yourself first: this way you'll get the hang of it. Scrape the cheese well and burn the cheese with the gas burner, so that all leftovers are removed (hygiene and turnover speed of the cheese is important and determine the shelf life). After use, store the cheese in the refrigerator below 4 degrees Celsius. Start the recipe again when the guests come to feast. The cheese can be used until the last crumble, in soup, with appetizers or in the cheese fondue.

Flammkuchen with Asparagus

4 pers
30 min

For all culinary fans we have come up with a great recipe with cheese and asparagus: Flammkuchen à la Henri Willig, with bacon and onion. You could use our magnificent Asparagus Cheese, or you could use any of these premium Henri Willig cheeses in combination with fresh asparagus: Organic Jersey, Jersey Garlic, Herb & Garlic Cow, or the Sheep Rosemary & Thyme.    The Flammkuchen, also known as a Tarte Flambée, originates in the Elzas, the German-French border region. Flammkuchen is made of bread dough, crème fraîche, onions and lardons or bacon strips. Great as a side dish, with a glass of wine in the afternoon, or even as dinner. Because the Flammkuchen is light and thin it’s also delicious as a savoury breakfast dish. So, very suitable for your Easter brunch.    Preparing the dough  If made by hand: sieve the flower and add 120 ml water, the olive oil and salt. Knead until crumbly. Add the rest of the water and knead until the dough doesn’t stick to your fingers anymore. If you make it with a kitchen machine, put the flower and salt in the bowl, and let de dough hook mix these dry ingredients on the lowest setting. Slowly add the olive oil. Then add the water bit by bit until the dough doesn’t stick to the bowl anymore.     Cover the dough ball with cling film and leave for half an hour in the fridge to firm up.    To make the Flammkuchen  Pre heat your oven to 220 °C. Chop the onion into small bits, fry your bacon until golden (or darker if you prefer). Put the onion and fried bacon in a bowl, add pepper, and mix. Peel the asparagus (and chop off the woody bits at the bottom of the spears if necessary), boil them in water with a dash of salt. Leave to drain and dry, then chop into chunks.  Flower your work surface. Roll out the dough until it’s nice and thin, and put it on a papered baking tray. Cover the top with the crème fraîche (leave the rim uncovered) and add the onion and bacon mixture. Then sprinkle the grated Henri Willig Cheese on top.(In need of a cheese grater? Henri Willig has got several, for instance a Delft Blue one.)   Put the tray in the oven and bake the Flammkuchen for 10 minutes until it’s crunchy and the cheese is melted. Then add the asparagus and bake for another 4 minutes. Once out of the oven sprinkle with the chives, cut into slices and serve immediately. Bon appetit!    By the way, there are more ways to enjoy this devine combination of asparagus and cheese. How about with potato slices, covered in melted Asparagus cheese, in our Cheese Baker? Or be daring, and add some freshly cooked green asparagus spears to your cheese platter.  You need   •baking paper  •rolling pin
