Primula Cheese Christmas Snack Hacks

As you may have read in this post, I am now a member of the Primula Blogger Club - bringing you one Primula recipe post per month until April. With it being December, things got a bit festive in the kitchen this week and now I have two special Primula Cheese Christmas Snack Hacks to share with all you food lovers out there!

Let's have a look shall we?



Christmas Star Sandwiches


Ingredients and tools you will need:
- White Bread  (1 slice per star depending on the size of your cutter)
- Primula Cheese of your choice
- Chives - finely chopped
- Red Chillies - finely chopped
- Cucumber - cut into ribbons
- Star Cutters (2 Sizes)
- Knife
- Toaster


Step One:
Lightly toast your slices of bread. As you can see above, I toasted 4 slices but I actually only needed 3 slices to create 3 sandwiches!


Step Two:
If you haven't already, finely chop your chillies and chives and also slice your cucumber into ribbons. Now your ingredients are all prepared you will be ready for the making process!


Step Three:
Using the largest cutter of the two to cut as many stars as you need out of the toast. You will need 2 stars per sandwich so I cut 6 stars to create 3 sandwiches.


Step Four:
Next, with half of the stars (so in my case 3) you will need to use the smaller of your two cutters to cut the centre from them.


Now it's time to start putting everything together!


Step Five:
Spread all of your whole stars with Primula Cheese of your choice. We decided on Primula Cheese Light!


Step Six:
Add your extra toppings on top of the cheese covered stars. As you can see we opted for chives on one, chillies on one and another with cucumber on.


Step Seven:
Place your remaining stars (the ones with no centres) on top of each of your whole toasted stars to create your sandwich snacks.


Step Eight:
Serve and enjoy! I think these look really impressive for a yummy Christmas themed snack! Very Pinterest appropriate!

Avocado Dip Christmas Trees


Ingredients and tools you will need:
- 1 Avocado (ripe)
- Primula Cheese with Prawns (Approx. half a tube)
- Lemon Juice (1 dessertspoon)
- Red Chilli - finely chopped
- Pitta Bread (1 per 'tree')
- Twiglets
- Pomegranate Seeds (optional)
- Knife
- Fork
- Toaster


Step One:
Lightly toast your pitta breads. One pitta makes one large 'tree' so just toast as many pitta breads for however many 'trees' you would like.


Step Two:
Cut the avocado in half, remove the stone and scoop the avocado from the peel. You will then need to mash this in a bowl with a fork as smooth as possible. Alternatively if you have a hand blender, you can use this. 


Step Three:
Add one dessertspoon of lemon juice and mix thoroughly.


Step Four:
Add in your half a tube of Primula with Prawns and mix well. 


Step Five:
Next you will need to cut your pittas into triangles. Simply cut at an angle from the top to bottom on both sides and then cut straight across the widest part.


Step Six:
Smother your pitta breads in a layer of your Avocado dip and use the prongs of the fork to create a horizontal pattern in the dip. This just adds a bit of texture and makes it look a bit more tree-like. Alternatively you can pipe the avocado dip onto the pitta bread.


Step Seven:
Add the Twiglets to the bottom of your pittas to look like little tree trunks.


Step Eight:
Next add your chillies (and pomegranate seeds if you got any) to look like baubles and a star for the top! You could technically get creative with this and use any chopped up food you wanted - I think red onion would be quite delicious!


Step Nine:
Serve and enjoy! I think these look really good and would make a really fun Christmas themed snack!
