North Americans often think of cheese as the pre-dinner appetizer, but for a very European ending to the meal, serve instead of dessert.
The Cheese Course
Cranberry Brie en Croûte
“En croûte” simply means encased in pastry, a delicious way to present a whole Brie on a special occasion.
Instead of the usual ground meat, this easy family supper features our fully cooked tender pork roast with its delicious gravy.
Mini Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Muffins
Kids will love the size, just right for little hands. Moms will love the not-too-sweet taste.
This is sloppy Joe by way of the Mediterranean! Satisfyingly messy.
Chocolate Raspberry Panini
A dessert sandwich? Why not! Chocolate and raspberry are a classic combination, even better when served warm in a panini sandwich.
Sweet Pepper Quesadillas
Cooking quesadillas on a reversible grill lets you get a smoky grilled flavour year-round without braving the elements to turn on the barbecue.
Silver Dollar Banana Pancakes
Kids love miniature versions of things they can pick up in their hands-baby carrots, sandwiches cut with small cookie cutters, and these loonie-sized pancakes.
Prosciutto and Mozzarella Panini
Panini are Italian-style sandwiches, meaning “little bread”. Some are served cold, but some are heated on a sandwich press until crispy and oozing.
This gussied-up version of the traditional ham and cheese Croque Monsieur makes a great snack or lunch.
