Is it OK to eat cheese for breakfast? It’s OK if it’s OKA!
We don’t know about you, but we are firmly against cottage cheese getting all the attention at brunch and breakfast! Isn’t an OKA cheese slice on your plate before noon your favourite thing? Or is it just us? To convince you to join our club, here are seven ways to integrate OKA cheese in your breakfast, whether it’s healthy or not.
A favourite expression of those learning French, l’omelette au fromage can be eaten both on weekdays and on weekends. To make it extra special, add some OKA cheese and mushrooms to your recipe. Flavoured with wild mushrooms and truffles, it becomes a true, refined masterpiece! Thanks to their aromatic and tasty profiles, you won’t be able to eat your omelettes without them again.
If you’re not a millennial, chances are you’re not familiar with this new yet delicious food trend. A few avocado slices on a good piece of bread, a drop of lemon juice and a pinch of salt and pepper will become your saviour breakfast for uninspired mornings. Add a few slices of OKA Aged cheese, and you’ll have found the fountain of youth. With its supple, creamy texture and its fruity aroma, the OKA Aged cheese will find a definite place in your morning routine.
We like it because it’s nutritious, easy to make and there is plenty for the whole week. Morning Glory is a great option for a full breakfast on the go if you don’t like to eat too much in the morning. In addition to the traditional carrots, walnuts, bananas and dried cranberries, add about 200 g of OKA cheese to your recipe. Not only will it add protein, but the irresistible nutty and buttery taste of this classic will also give new life to your breakfast bread!
Who has never had toast with a slice of cheese on top? It’s a guilty pleasure! OKA L’Artisan cheese will be your next favourite go-to for this simple snack. Mixing the irresistible flavour of traditional OKA cheese with the distinctive appearance of a European-style cheese with holes, you won’t even want to add butter!
Some of us tend to make good choices and eat healthy breakfasts. A bowl of fruit, multigrain bread, cheese and a poached egg make a balanced and energizing meal! With 30% less fat than the regular OKA cheese, OKA Light cheese has the same subtle and irresistible hazelnut-and-butter taste all while allowing you to eat healthier!
Bacon and Cheese Pancakes
If you want to show off for a weekend breakfast, add some OKA L’Artisan Smoke cheese to bacon and cheese pancake recipes. Blending perfectly with bacon and maple syrup, the smoky flavour enhances the Sunday pancakes experience.
Melted Cheese French Toast
Have you ever thought about melting cheese on your French toast? You totally should! It’s a real delight. Make your usual French toast, add a few slices of OKA Raclette cheese, and place it in the oven on broil for a few minutes. The unique characteristic of the OKA Raclette cheese gives it the distinction of melting slowly in the heat, browning without burning. You’re welcome.
Whether you want to renew a morning classic or innovate behind the stove, integrating the OKA cheese family into your kitchen is as easy as shouting YUM!
