Midnight Snacks with Nairn’s
This is a paid post but the lovely guys at Nairn’s who encouraged me to develop three yummy and easy treats to celebrate the launch of the Nairn’s nything Goes TV advert.
The truth of it is, that whenever I hunger for a midnight snack I always turn to Nairn’s for inspiration. Oats are often hailed as an original ‘superfood’ and full of nutrients. Nairn’s pride themselves on producing delicious oat-based products that are simple, natural, and wholesome – oats are the key ingredient in everything they make so I’ve created these three simple and fun ways to enjoy a midnight snack.
Midnight Snacks with Nairn’s
You’re hungry, it’s late… what could be more perfectly simple than Nairn’s oatcakes and whatever you can find in the fridge? You don’t want anything too fussy or anything that takes too much time to prepare. Thing slabs of cheese, ready made jams and left-over dinners. I always find a nice crunch oatcake is best used as a delivery service for quick bites… because quite frankly, nything Goes.
Cheddar & Chilli Jam on a Nairn’s Cheese Oatcake
They say you’re not supposed to eat cheese at night but a chunk of strong cheddar placed on top of some sweet chilli jam on top of a Nairn’s Cheese Oatcake is heavenly. I favour a really strong and nutty cheddar such as a Davidstow but we also have an aged Lincolnshire Poacher local to us that has a wonderful nutty quality that I love. The chill jam (make it a generous teaspoonful) has the perfect sweetness and little kick of heat that compliments both cheese and cracker.
Hot-Smoked Salmon, Soy and Sesame on a Nairn’s Super Seeded Oatcake
How about left-over hot-smoked salmon, ribbons of cucumber, soy sauce and a sprinkling of sesame seeds on a Nairn’s Super Seeded Oatcake? I recently made a wonderful smoked salmon quiche and had some of this glorious stuff left-over. Such a light taste with the added smokey flavour works well with the crunch of a few ribbons of cucumber for freshness. I use a peeler to create nice and thin ribbons that splash generously with soy sauce and sprinkle with sesame seeds. The Nairn’s Super Seeded Oatcake is the perfect vehicle to deliver this straight to your mouth!
Nairn’s Chocolate Orange Oat Biscuit Cream Cheese Sandwich.
And finally a little indulgence in the form of some sweetened vanilla cream-cheese. Sandwiched between two Nairn’s Chocolate Orange Oat Biscuits? I use a regular cream cheese. Simply beat into it a teaspoon of icing sugar and a drop of my favourite vanilla essence. Then spread it thickly onto one Nairn’s Chocolate Orange Oat Biscuit. Then place another one on top for an indulgent treat!
