Recently Pilgrims Choice asked me if I would like to get involved in their blogger challenge. Pilgrims Choice have just launched a new range of 80g cheeses called Pick N Mix. The idea of the smaller packs is that you have the choice to try something new and can have two or three different types of cheese to nibble at. I was sent some of the new range and challenged to come up with a recipe using Pilgrims Choice Pick M Mix. The range contains six different flavours, three core flavours, Vintage Cheddar, Smokey Cheddar and Wensleydale and Cranberry and three limited edition flavours, Indian Spice, Firecracker and Apple & Wensleydale. I love a good challenge so I had a good think as to what I could make with the cheese.
I really liked the idea of the Pilgrims Choice with Apple and thought that would make a nice flavour to a cheese sauce. I had some cauliflower and some cod in the fridge so I decided I would try a cod and cauliflower cheese bake. I added some onions and black pepper as well to make it a little bit more exciting.
The result was a quick and tasty supper, the apple added a nice sweet taste to the cheese sauce that worked really well with the cod and cauliflower. I also grated some of the smokey cheddar flavour over the top and grilled it until it was melted. I served the dish with chips. A salad would be nice with it as well for a simple lunch.
The cod made a simple cauliflower cheese a little bit more interesting. I think it would also be nice if a layer of tomatoes was added to the top before sprinkling on the extra grated cheese and then grilling.
I was sent the some Pilgrims Choice cheese to help me create a recipe.
