3 x digestive biscuit toppings

I’m participating in a blog competition. Göteborgs Kex has newly launched mini digestive biscuits and is arranging a competition where food bloggers are encouraged to make up a maximum of three recipes. The only rules are that the recipes need to contain mini digestive biscuits and cheese. Below are my recipes, in both English and Swedish.

The first recipe that I came up with was mini cheesecakes. A delicious ricotta topping with blueberries, lime and vanilla; a real treat!

    Mini cheesecakes with blueberries, lime and vanilla

    250 gram ricotta
    0.5 vanilla pod, the interior
    4 tsp sugar
    1 organic lime (zest from the whole lime, juice from half the lime)
    100 ml blueberries
    100 ml whipping cream
    2 tsp instant gelatine for cold mixtures
    fresh raspberries for decoration
    25 small digestive biscuits (“utvalda små digestive”)

    On the medium speed of an electric mixer, beat ricotta, vanilla, sugar, lime and blueberries for 1 minute or two until smooth. In a separate bowl lightly whip the cream, add the gelatine and whip until fluffy. Carefully combine everything and pipe the mixture on the digestive biscuits. Decorate with fresh raspberries.

    Mini-cheesecake med blåbär, lime och vanilj

    250 gram ricotta
    0.5 vaniljstång, urskrapad
    4 tsk socker
    1 ekologisk lime (finrivet skal från hela limen, saft från halva limen)
    1 dl blåbär
    1 dl vispgrädde
    2 tsk gelatin för kalla desserter
    färska hallon att dekorera med
    25 Utvalda Små Digestive

    Vispa ricotta, vanilj, socker, lime och blåbär i 1-2 minuter tills smeten blir slät. Vispa grädden lätt i en separat skål, tillsätt gelatinet och fortsätt vispa tills grädden är färdigvispad. Rör ihop allt försiktigt och spritsa ut ricottablandningen på digestivekexen. Dekorera med färska hallon.

The second recipe is the absolutely most scrumptious one. Wonderful warm feta cheese with a balsamic lime and thyme vinaigrette. During summer I often fry feta cheese as a starter and pour the divine vinaigrette on top. The recipe is inspired by a dish that I had at a Greek restaurant and once at home I tried to re-create it. Since then it’s one of my favourites. For the competition I decided to combine my recipe with digestive biscuits, which turned out delicious!

    Digestive biscuits with ovenbaked feta and balsamic lime and thyme vinaigrette

    150 gram feta cheese
    16 small digestive biscuits
    3 tbsp honey
    3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
    1.5 tbsp white balsamic vinegar
    1 tbsp lime juice
    1 tsp organic lime zest
    2 tsp fresh thyme, finely chopped

    Cut the cheese into 16 pieces and place on the small digestive biscuits. Bake in 175 degrees C for 10 minutes. Keep an eye so the cheese and biscuits won’t burn. In the mean time combine the vinegreitte ingredients. Take out the biscuits from the oven and pour the vinegraitte over them. Serve immediately.

    Små digestive med ugnsbakad fetaost samt balsamvinägrett med lime och timjan

    150 gram fetaost
    16 Utvalda Små Digestive
    3 msk honung
    3 msk extra virgin olivolja
    1.5 msk vit balsamvinäger
    1 msk limejuice
    1 tsk ekologisk limeskal, finrivet
    2 tsk färsk timjan, finhackad

    Dela fetaosten i 16 lika stora delar. Fördela ostbitarna på digestivekexen och baka i 10 minuter i 175 grader C. Se till att kexen och osten inte blir brända. Blanda under tiden ihop vinägrettingredienserna. Ta ut kexen ur ugnen och ringla vinägretten över. Servera omedelbart.

    I love blue cheese and I love bacon, so the third recipe is a simple but yummy blue cheese and bacon topping.

    Digestive biscuits with bluecheese and bacon
    120 gram extra smoked bacon rashers
    100 gram blue cheese
    100 ml crème fraîche
    black pepper
    chives, chopped
    approx. 20 small digestive biscuits

    Fry the bacon rashers until crispy and let cool on a paper kitchen towel. Crush the bacon into small pieces with your fingers (reserve 1-2 bacon rashers for decoration), combine with grated blue cheese, crème fraîche and black pepper. Pipe the mixture on digestive biscuits. Sprinkle the remaining bacon and chives on top of each digestive biscuit.

    Små digestive med blåmögel-och bacontopping
    120 gram extrarökt skivad bacon
    100 gram blåmögelost
    1 dl crème fraîche
    svartpeppar
    gräslök, hackad
    ca 20 Utvalda Små Digestive

    Stek baconskivorna tills de är krispiga. Låt svalna på hushållspapper. Smula sönder baconet i små bitar (lägg undan 1-2 skivor för dekoration), blanda ihop med riven blåmögelost, crème fraîche och svartpeppar. Spritsa ut blandningen på kexen. Strö över resterande bacon och gräslök på kexen.

    mini-cheesecakes – what an inspired idea. And healthier for being nibble sized and not having to use butter to bind crushed digestives.
    I love the look of the savoury feta ones too. Mmm, you’ve really got me thinking now…
    All the best with the competition – I hope your recipes are as appreciated by the judges as they are by me

    I love the sound – and look – of the first and the third entry, Dagmar!!! I imagine both toppings would also work well on a tiny rye bread square (I have no access to mini-Digestives here, so need to think of other options, you see).
    Good luck!!

    Testade feta-varianten igårkväll. Visserligen fick vi byta ut den vita balsamicon mot en mörk, men det fungerade också bra (även om estetiken förmodligen fick en smälll). Fantastiskt litet snack som passade ypperligt tillsammans med ett glas rött, lite kalamata- och hakidiki-oliver och ett par skivor prosciutto.

    I just discovered you’re beautiful blog and recipes, on my quest for mini cheese cake recipes, and I had to just leave it open on my browser for a few days so I could flick across occasionally to imagine eating them. I really will have to try these three recipes, and i love how you post a lot of tea-party appropriate things!
