It’s that time of year when I forget to eat in between shopping, wrapping, crafting, cooking and baking, housecleaning.
More often than I’d like to admit, this time of year finds me scarfing down crackers at 3pm- constituting them as breakfast and lunch. Oh dear….
Not too healthy.
Fortunately, the folks at Castello have created some of my favorite, Aged Havarti, cheese to nibble on (and yes, even put on my crackers at 3pm.)
But this cheese deserves so much more than crackers.
Fortunately, with the holidays comes leftover roast turkey. With your leftovers, add a smudge of mayo to highlight the buttery richness of the Harvarti and some crisp peppery arugula to tie them altogether. Make a sandwich, a wrap or even an omelet with this cheese. Whatever it is, you won’t find me skipping lunch, or breakfast for that matter.
For those of you unfamiliar with aged Harvarti cheese, it’s a must try… creamy and buttery with just enough bite from it’s 12 months of aging. Perfect complement to turkey, crackers, even that leftover ham that’s bound to surface in the next few days.
