This recipe is great way to use cheese leftovers, ideally, cheeses in contrast with flavour and colour.
This is a recipe that takes little time yet impressive, packed with flavours and textures. Replace black pepper with mustard or chilli flakes to switch things up!
This recipe used British cheeses: cheddar, Wensleydale blue, double Gloucester, and red fox.
