Hooray! Kerrygold is now a partner with Foodbuzz. Kerrygold offers a wide variety of cheese and butter products. They come straight from the heart of Ireland. To know more about their products and a great collection of recipes go to their website here. As a member of Foodbuzz Taste-maker programme, I was waiting to receive two coupons for kerrygold products. Got these coupons by mail and the first thing that day was to try one of their product.
My love for Swiss cheese made me buy that! OMG!! The Colour of the cheese was so pleasing and the Taste was absolutely heavenly! Never ever tasted such a wonderful Swiss cheese before.. The flavour was too good!
I made these calzones that day to enjoy this Swiss cheese...

Here is the recipe!

SWISS CHEESY CALZONES

Ingredients:

For Dough:
  • All-purpose flour - 1 1/2 cups
  • Rapid rise Highly active yeast - 1 1/2 tsp
  • Warm water - 1/2 cup
  • Sugar - 1/2 tsp
  • Salt - as required
  • Oil - 2 tbsp
For Filling:
  • Swiss cheese - 1 cup shredded
  • Onions - 1 chopped
  • Bell peppers - 1 chopped
  • Eggplant - 1/2 cup chopped
  • Tomato - 1 chopped
  • Tomato Paste - 2 tbsp
  • Garlic - 2 cloves crushed
  • Black Pepper - 1 tsp, crushed
  • Basil - 1 tsp dried
  • Parsley - 1 tsp dried
  • Salt - as required
  • Oil - 1 tbsp
How to make it:

Dough: To 1/2 cup of luke warm water, add sugar and salt and mix well. Add the yeast and set aside for about 10 minutes until its frothy on top. In a large bowl, mix flour and salt. Add the yeast water and more luke warm water (about 1/4 cup) to prepare a soft dough. Add 2 tbsp oil and knead the dough gently for about 5 minutes. Cover and let it stand for about 2 hours or until it becomes double in size.
For filling: Heat oil in a pan, add garlic and onions and fry until light brown. Add green peppers, eggplant, tomato and tomato paste and cook for a while. Now add parsley, basil, black pepper and salt and cook for 5 more minutes until soft. The filling mixture should be thick.
Now, take a ball of the dough. Roll it into a circle. To one half of the circle place some filling mixture and sprinkle enough cheese on top. Fold and press the ends. Also, use a fork to press the ends to get a nice finish. Bake at 400 degrees Fahrenheit until it turns light brown. Sprinkle some cheese on top of the dough to get a more cheesy touch.





KERRYGOLD BUTTER:

I preferred the salted butter to go as a spread on a slice of Irish soda bread for breakfast. It was amazing! The taste of the butter made me feel like home! We all loved it! Surely, a best way to start the day!

I also made a buttery spread for my breads. Here is the recipe..


CILANTRO-CRAISINS BUTTERY SPREAD:

Ingredients:
  • Cilantro - 1/2 cup chopped
  • Craisins - 1/4 cup
  • Garlic - 2 cloves
  • Butter (salted) - 2 ounce, softened
How to make it:

Blend cilantro, garlic and craisins until fine. Add this to the butter. Mix well.

For making sandwich:
On a slice of a 12 grain bread, spread some prepared butter. On the other slice, spread your favourite sauce ( I used Frank's red hot sauce and Chilli-garlic tomato sauce). Add some shredded Kerrygold Swiss cheese in between. Toast on a griddle until light brown and cheese melts. Cut and serve. This hot and sweet sandwich was a great hit! The aroma of the butter is just amazing!



Do try this Butter for sure, i bet you'll love this! Either in a recipe or as a spread, the flavour of this butter makes any food, taste the best!

I thank Kerrygold and Foodbuzz for giving this wonderful opportunity to try these products from Ireland. Now its time for me to try more of them! Some already in my shopping list! Will soon come up with more recipes!

My dear Friend Varsha of Will-O'-the Wisp passed me this Excellent blog award! Thankyou so much sweety for thinking about me.. I'm flying in joy! I would like to pass this award to all my blogger friends! Pls, do feel free to take it from me.
