Mini pasties filled with Casademont fuet and caramelised onions

Fuet is a type of cured sausage often eaten as a snack or as part of a buffet style meal. At Casademont, we also get creative and use it in other dishes, such as salads (you can see our salad with Casademont fuet with figs recipe here).

Because we know that many of you are big fans of fuet, we have created an oven-baked recipe so that you can enjoy it in many other ways. Have you ever thought about using fuet as a pasty filling?

Winter is a season when we have more motivation to get cooking. The cold inspires us to go out and buy good ingredients and spend hours in the kitchen trying to replicate the elaborate recipes we ate at home when we were little and when, as is often said, “tomatoes tasted like tomatoes”.

At Casademont, we champion the value of artisanal and traditional production, so we want to celebrate the start to this year with a recipe in which the simple and flavoursome ingredients speak for themselves.

Ingredients – (for two people) – 
1 Casademont Fuet with Cabrales
100 g onion
1 clove of garlic
120 g green pepper
120 g red pepper
100 g potatoes
4 eggs
Oil
Salt
6 chopped dates

Instructions
Cut the Casademont Fuet with Cabrales and dates into small dice. 
Cut the onion, peppers and potatoes into thick strips. 
Deep fry in plenty of oil. Remove when golden brown and reserve. 
Put water to boil in a saucepan. 
Break an egg into a small bowl. 
Once the water is boiling, whisk rapidly until a whirlpool forms and pour the egg carefully into the pan. The egg should rotate with the water to create the effect of the white surrounding the yolk, typical of poached eggs. 
Repeat until all four eggs are cooked. 
Arrange the fried vegetables on a plate and serve the poached eggs on top. 
Add salt. 
Garnish with the diced dates and Casademont Fuet with cabrales.

Avocados have become popular mainly for their high vitamin and mineral content (more than 20 different types!), their abundance of healthy fats and low percentage of saturated fats. But their intense colour and the creativity of social network users have done the rest. Who has not tried to replicate at home those soaring avocado toasts with fruit and nuts and thousands of unexpected toppings that we see plastered all over Instagram?

We have! But as we’re out to enjoy ourselves, we have accompanied our avocado toasts with crispy Casademont bacon strips.

* 100 grams of avocado contains 12 grams of carbohydrate. But of those 12 grams, 9 are fibre! It is the fruit with the highest soluble fibre content. That’s why it is recommended in low-carb diets and diets to regulate intestinal transit. And the bacon… well, what can we say? Casademont bacon is a sheer delight, whatever you eat it with!

With the arrival of autumn, the summer holidays are but a distant memory. We get lost in the daily routine: working lunches, a quick supper of whatever we can find… The last thing we want after spending all day away from home with a thousand things to do is to start cooking. But how do we stop this from making us eat unhealthily? The answer lies in dishes like the one we show you today: a filling salad that is high in protein and vitamins, with vegetables, nuts and green apple.

Ingredients

· Casademont Fuet Extra

· Carrots

· Courgettes

· Brussels sprouts

· Red and yellow peppers

· Broccoli

· Spring onion

· Parsley, oil

Preparation

Cut the Casademont Fuet Extra into sticks about 10 cm long. Wash the vegetables and slice the carrots, courgette and peppers into 0.5 cm strips, slice the spring onions and Brussels sprouts in half and break up the broccoli into small florets. Put the wok on the heat, add 2 tablespoons of oil and fry the Casademont Fuet Extra for a few seconds. Remove from the wok and add the carrots, sprouts, broccoli and spring onions, and cook for about 5 minutes, stirring often with a wooden spatula. Add the remaining vegetables. When they are “al dente”, turn off the heat, add the strips of Casademont Fuet Extra and cover for about 5 minutes.

Assembly

Pile the vegetables and the Casademont Fuet Extra on to the plate and sprinkle with a little chopped fresh parsley. Drizzle over oil to taste.

Ingredients

· Casademont Fuet Extra

· Pearl couscous

· Red peppers

· Carrots

· Courgettes

· Spring onion

· Seedless sultanas

· Chopped walnuts

· Parsley

Preparation

Cook the couscous according to the instructions on the packet. Wash and chop the vegetables and cook in a large frying pan with a pinch of salt. When they are “al dente”, add the couscous, sultanas and walnuts and cook for one minute to allow the flavours to blend. Chop the Casademont Fuet Extra.

Assembly

Placed a ring or circular cookie cutter in the centre of the plate, pile in the vegetables and couscous and sprinkle over some of the chopped Casademont Fuet Extra. Carefully remove the mould and garnish with a few parsley leaves.

Tip

Rub a little oil on the cookie cutter beforehand to make it easier to remove.

Ingredients:

· Casademont Fuet Extra

· Grated mozzarella

· Fried tomato sauce

· Oregano

For the dough:

· 250 g flour

· 8 g compressed yeast

· 5 g salt

· 75 ml milk

· 75 ml water

· 50 ml olive oil

To make the dough:

Work the dough as if you were making bread: mix the flour with the salt and form a volcano. In the well in the centre, add the yeast with warm milk and knead with your hands, adding water and oil as needed. When the dough no longer sticks to your hands, form it into a ball, coat with oil and leave to stand for about 30 minutes in a warm place.

Assemble the dish:

After 30 minutes, stretch the dough to make it very thin, cover with the fried tomato to taste and sprinkle with oregano. Then add the sliced Casademont Fuet Extra and cover with grated mozzarella, adding a few more slices of Casademont Fuet Extra on top and some more chopped oregano. Leave to rest for about 30 minutes while you preheat the oven to 220 degrees. Bake the pizza on the middle shelf of the oven for about 20-25 minutes.
