We were recently sent three tubes of Primula cheese and challenged to have some squeezy fun. The Primula Kids range has no artificial colours, flavours or preservatives and reduced salt as well as added calcium. We thought about having some fun with crackers or sandwiches but decided we would first have some fun with homemade pizza.
My eldest loves to make pizza and it is often a treat for her to make the dough. After school this week we made pizza dough. We got creative with out Primula cheese by adding a squirt into the crust to make a stuffed crust edge and then drew a face on our pizza.
Our dogs were looking at us rather eager for some of our pizza, so after a quick google search I discovered Primula cheese is good for dogs too. We decided to make some dog biscuits.
2 cups whole wheat flour
1/2 cup oats
water - enough to thicken the dough
My daughter mixed the ingredients together in a bowl, adding in the water carefully so as to not make the dough too sticky. We added in a squirt of Primula to give it a cheesy flavour. After we had our dough we used cutters in the shapes of gingerbread men, squirrels, love hearts and birds to make our biscuits. We placed them on a greased tray and put in the oven 200C for 18 minutes.
Once the biscuits had cooled down we used Primula cheese to decorate the tops of the biscuits
Although my eldest soon discovered that she could take the Primula cheese out of the tube.
Not wanting to taste the dog biscuits myself, we decided to give them to our dogs
They were a huge hit. Both dogs loved them.
It was a lovely way to spend some time with my daughter after school and a good way to build a bond with our new dog. We definitely had some squeezy fun in the kitchen with Primula cheese.
