I’ll be the first to admit this is a cheesy post, however it is an Imperial one! One of my favorite indulgences while visiting family in Vancouver is sharp cheddar cheese and Imperial is the brand that our family traditionally bought. I was gifted a “Costco-size portion” of Imperial on my last visit and decided to make something with it – cheese crackers! The crackers evolved into little appetizers adorned with Brie cheese, finely shredded aged Parmesan and even beef bacon from Publican Quality Meats.
If you ever get your hands on Imperial cheese, here’s the recipe:
1 – 250g MacLaren’s Imperial cheese
2 cups flour (I used a mixture of different varieties)
2 tablespoons chia seeds
2 sticks butter
3 dashes Worcestershire sauce
4 dashes hot sauce
Mix ingredients together and roll into cylindrical shape. Wrap with parchment paper and chill for at least an hour. Remove from fridge, cut slices desired thickness (1/4") and place on a cookie sheet. Bake for 8 - 10 minutes at 375 degrees.
