This inspiration is a celebration of our Pacific Rock cheese. A sprinkling of complementary ingredients brings out its aromatic, nutty accents for a flavour blast. No need for spices or herbs, this cheese does all the heavy lifting! You can use this crust as a topping for proteins like steak, chicken, and fish, as a replacement for croutons in a salad, or as a garnish for pizza, nachos, or flatbread. Here, we’ve combined it with diced Pacific Rock cheese, tomatoes, fried onions, panko, dried cranberries and pumpkin seeds.
According to Chef Brown, you can get creative with ingredients you have on hand, like dried fruits for chewiness and sweetness, nuts for crunch, and fried jalapeños or potato sticks for saltiness.
