Cheese on Toast with Tapenade

Basic but very yummy!
Take Tomato Tapenade and cover toast and then add cheese of your choice put under grill until golden brown.
Serve with a splash of Worcester sauce!!

Tomato Tapenade with Meatballs

I normally use beef for my meatballs, but this works with any mince.
Take the mince and make in to small balls, gently fry in a small amount of butter and then add finely chopped Tomato Tapenade to the pan until hot.
Serve with pasta, potato or rice.

Walnut bread with Cream Cheese & Tomato Tapenade

Take walnut bread and place a metal ring half fill with Tomato Tapenade cover with cream cheese, and then cove the cheese with lightly toasted sesame seeds. Serve with salad and a reduction of balsamic vinegar.

Prawns with Tomato Tapenade

Finely chop the Tomato Tapenade add finely grated fresh horseradish and serve with fresh cooked prawns.

Remember I am also good as a sauce on burgers (once you have had it on a burger you will never want ketchup again!!) 

I have also been used as a sauce on fillet of beef and as a condiment with roast pork knuckle, and if all you are looking for is a quick snack I am great just spread on a bit of bread with a chunk of cheese, you can even forget the bread!!!

I know I keep on going on about how good I am but I have been made with a lot of care and thought and as such a spoonful or 3 in a bolognaise, Chilli con Carne, or as a sauce on pasta!!   

I am only limited for uses by your imagination. Enjoy!
