Kerrygold Bread & Butter Pudding


Serves:  4-6

If you really want to show off to your guests, a gas gun or small propane torch can be used, with care, to glaze the top. If you don’t fancy using apricot jam as a glaze try marmalade or lemon curd instead. To make it even more delicious try making it with day-old croissants or brioche.

Rachel’s Strawberry Muesli

rachel strawberry muesli

This recipe comes from the original Swiss Bircher muesli, where porridge oats are soaked in a little water, then sweetened with delicious seasonal or dried fruit, and sometimes nuts and seeds too. Strawberries and raspberries work particularly well in this muesli recipe, as does grated apple, to which you could also add a smidgen of ground cinnamon.

The recipe was created in the early 1900s by the Swiss physician Dr Maximillian Bircher-Benner, who knew that a diet rich in nutrients was essential for the recuperation of the patients in his hospital.

Place the porridge oats in a bowl with the water. Allow the oats to sit for 10 minutes, then add in the strawberries. Mash with a fork before adding enough light agave syrup or honey, whichever you’re using, to sweeten the mixture.

Serve the muesli on its own, or with cream and brown sugar; or topped with natural yoghurt and toasted, chopped hazelnuts or almonds.

Kerrygold Fettuccine Alfredo, Irish-style


Prep:  5 minutes
Cook:  15 minutes
Serves:  2
  1. Ingredients:
    • 6 ounces fettuccine noodles
    • 1 ½ cups grated Kerrygold Dubliner Cheese
    • ½ cup heavy cream
    • 3 tablespoons Kerrygold Unsalted Butter
    • Salt, to taste
    • Freshly ground black pepper, to taste

    Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil to cook the pasta.

    Meanwhile, grate the cheese and place it in a serving bowl.

    In a small sauce pan, melt the cream and butter together. Do not bring to a boil—just keep it warm.

    Add the pasta to the boiling water and cook until al dente.

    Drain the pasta (reserving some of the cooking water, just in case).

    Add the hot pasta to the serving bowl with the grated cheese. Toss, toss, toss.

    Drizzle in the melted butter and cream mixture, and toss again.

    Taste, and add salt, pepper, and additional pasta cooking water to taste.
