Sponsored by: Mahon Menorca Cheese

Broccoli puree with cream cheese and bacon is broccoli puree that is made creamy and tasty with Mahon Menorca semi-cured cheese or Gouda cheese, butter, garlic, spices and topped with a little cream, a little more grated cheese and crumbled bacon.

This brightly colored, rich and creamy vegetable puree is so comforting and incredibly tasty that even my picky and hateful broccoli teenage boy ate this and declared it the only way to eat broccoli!

When I first served it to my son, he wrinkled his face and said, "This is so green and I don't like broccoli, Mom!" But I was determined to get it, to try it, so I said, "I need an honest opinion from someone I know to be forceful and unfiltered." He tried it and said, "Wow, Mom, you got him out of the park! You really made broccoli taste good. ”

I used Mahon Menorca semi-cured cheese in this dish due to its excellent flavor and texture.

Mahon Menorca Cheese is available in 3 delicious varieties:

  1. Offer: A soft, yellowish-white cheese with very little rind. Smooth and creamy texture with a milky butter flavor and a tangy touch. (21-60 days)
  2. Semi-cured: A firm but easy to cut cheese with an ivory color and an orange peel. It has a tasty and more developed milky flavor with a buttery nutty flavor. (2-5 months)
  3. Cured: A firm, hard and mature cheese that has a highly developed complex, intense flavor, aroma and aftertaste. Touches of old wood, tanned leather or a cellar. A delight for cheese lovers. (more than 5 months)

I was very relieved when I discovered that the Mahon Menorca cheese is available in the US USA and it can be bought in these stores and shops:

Fairway, West Side Market, Gourmet Garage, Saveway, Wholefoods, Kroger, Costco, Central Markets, Central and Town & Country Markets.
