What's on the menu this Xmas Holiday Season

The Holiday season is right around the corner, and everyone is planning to spend quality time with family and friends with some delicious food, of course. So, how are you planning to make everyone happy with your food?

Planning a Christmas feast can be tricky, a good Christmas dinner or lunch should be something that everyone loves. It should include delicious appetizers, main courses and side dishes that have you returning for seconds and don’t forget the dessert at the end.

This Christmas if you want to surprise your family members with new dishes, I have something that’s perfect for Christmas. Have you ever heard about Cheese Curds? – one of the most underrated dairy products, which can be used to make a variety of delicious dishes. Either eat them raw as a snack or use them as an ingredient in another dish, you can make a range of delicious and healthy dishes with cheese curds.

So, without delay let me share with you some of the best recipes using cheese curds, that you can enjoy with your family this holiday season:

Poutine

Poutine is the most popular cheese curds dish in many countries, especially Canada. This Canadian delicacy is a combination of delicious flavours and textures – all in a single bowl.

To make this dish, you need to make some crispy French fries. Once your French fries are ready, pour them into a bowl, sprinkle some cheese curds all over the fries and then cover them with delicious hot gravy. A delicious mouth-watering poutine is ready to serve.

You can also make many different versions of poutine such as using sour cream instead of gravy or adding your favourite vegetables or meats on top as well.

Fried Cheese Curds

Fried cheese curds are one of the most famous cheese curd dishes, behind poutine of course. It’s one of the easiest and most delicious dishes, and you can serve it as an appetizer or a side dish.

To make tasty fried cheese curds first, you need to prepare a batter using flour, baking powder, milk, egg, and salt. Make a smooth batter and then dip the cheese curds in. Then deep fry them until they are golden brown, and your restaurant style delicious fried curds are ready to enjoy.

Fruit and Cheese Salad

Are you planning to eat healthy and delicious this Christmas? Cheese curds is without a doubt one of the healthiest dairy products, they contain protein, calcium and many other nutrients.  However, to make them even healthier you can mix them up with fruit and make a fruit cheese curd salad.

To make this salad, I always prefer using apples as it pairs well with cheese curds. The crunchy apple with some salty cheese curds tastes really amazing! You can also use celery, grapes, walnuts or any other fruits you like. Just squeeze a few drops of lemon in your salad for a great finishing touch.

Cheese Curd Bread Pudding

Bread pudding is one of the most loved desserts in many countries; everybody loves this sweet and delicious dessert.

Many people have their own variation of a bread pudding, but I’m talking about cheese curd bread pudding. To make a cheese curd bread pudding, you need some fresh bread and fresh cheese curds. First, cut bread into small cubes and place in a baking dish. Now take some cheese curds and sprinkle them on top of the bread. Pour your milk and egg mixture all over and then sprinkle your sugar on the top and bake as usual. Delicious!
