Comfort Food with an Indulgent Twist!

Written by

I love the saying ‘comfort food’. It conjures up the idea of warm filling treats, home cooked meals and eating something out of a bowl – whilst wearing cosy, cotton lounge-wear!

Comfort food satisfies you – making you feel loved, so when I was invited to join the Primula Blogger Club and sent their latest range of cheesy tubs, I felt very loved and my thoughts turned to comfort food and what I could make!

My kids enjoy the treat of cheese on toast so I thought I’d use the new Primula tubs to create an indulgent snack of Primula cheese on toast – with a twist! Primula tubes and tubs are real cheese in a convenient and spreadable form making them super easy to spread without tearing the bread or breaking a cracker, so I put them to work!

Here is how to make an indulgent cheese on toast.
You’ll need:

  • Multigrain loaf
  • Tub of Primula Cheese with Onion
  • Tub of Primula Smoked Cheese
  • Few drops of Worcester Sauce
  • Method:

  • Put bread into the toaster to lightly toast both sides
  • Spread creamy cheese onto each slice; I made one with the cheese & onion pot and the other with smoked cheese!
  • Add a few drops of Worcester sauce to each slice
  • Place under a hot grill for a few minutes until the cheese is warm
  • Settle down in your favourite armchair with a cup of tea and enjoy!
  • The Cheese with Onion flavour has a creamy yet mild taste and the Smoked Cheese flavour is “really nice” according to my husband! This easy recipe is full of flavour and perfect for a snack on these cold winter nights.

    Whilst cheese on toast is a favourite for kids and adults alike, I also wanted to put together a quick treat for the adults for evening snacking. If you’re a fan of cheese and crackers, why not use Primula cheese for a snack with real character?

    Here I combined the Cheese with Chilli tub with a Ritz cracker and used the Cheese with Smoked Salmon tube with the Sainsbury’s Mature Cheddar Crispy Thins. The smoked salmon gives a highbrow treat – combining Primula’s tasty cheese with chopped salmon. You could say it’s a way of having your restaurant favourite cheese board in an easy and accessible way at home!

    As the Primula range have a long use by date range they are sure to become fridge staples at this time of year when a trip to the supermarket on a cold night is less appealing!

    The cheese cracker sandwich will also save you calories if you are watching your weight. Simply swap your Cathedral City Mature Cheddar (around 416 calories for 100g) for Primula with Smoked Salmon – at the same amount you’ll save around 209 calories!

    I’m always watching my weight but the real push will start again in January. Until then I’m going to have a few more nights of indulgent cheese on toast for supper as my winter comfort food!

    The range is available in ASDA with the Primula Smoked Salmon as a limited edition for the next few months so get yours now! Do you have any other ideas for an indulgent cheese on toast topper this winter?
