Sautéed Mushrooms with Garlic and Thyme on Ciabatta

These tasty mushrooms are a wonderful accompaniment to any meat dish, but adults and kids alike can also enjoy them as a great starter or snack when served on freshly toasted ciabatta.


  • 30g / 2 tbsp Dairygold
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 clove of garlic, chopped
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 300g sliced mushrooms (whichever variety you like)
  • 1 tablespoon chopped thyme leaves / dried thyme
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 ciabatta loaf, divided in four


Heat a large saucepan to high heat and add the oil.

When the oil reaches smoking point (this might take a minute or two), add the Dairygold, onion and garlic.

To prevent the garlic from burning, toss the pan’s contents furiously.

Once the onions turn translucent, add the mushrooms. Keep tossing until all the mushrooms are golden brown and caramelized.

Add thyme and season with salt and pepper to taste.

Depending on what you’re doing them for, serve immediately as a side, or on toasted ciabatta.

Dairygold Pizza Dough

Pizza Dough

Everyone loves pizza right? Well we have a great dough recipe which you and the kids can all enjoy making!


  • 8g instant (rapid rise) dry yeast
  • 10g sugar
  • 310 ml warm milk
  • 45g Dairygold Baking Block
  • 360g all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp salt


In a large bowl, mix yeast, sugar, warm milk (do not bring to a boil) and melted Dairygold Baking Block.

Let rest 10 minutes to allow yeast to activate. Foam will form along the surface.

Mix flour and salt. Gradually add to bowl, mixing with a fork, and eventually with your hands if using a fork becomes difficult.

Incorporate flour until dough is consistent and fairly firm.

Flour a work surface and knead the dough, adding a bit of flour until dough no longer sticks. To knead, fold and flatten the dough for roughly 5 minutes, using the palm of your hand or fist.

Place dough ball in a bowl greased with butter, cover, and allow dough to rise in a warm, draft-free location. The dough must double in volume. This should take about 45 minutes.

Deflate the dough prior to working it according to the chosen recipe.
