How to use up leftover gruyère

  • Cheesy pastry
    Grate 50g gruyère, then gently knead into a simple shortcrust pastry recipe before chilling (search deliciousmagazine.co.uk). Use to top pies or as a base for quiche.
  • Savoury croissants
    Heat the oven to 200°C/180°C fan/gas 6. Halve day-old croissants lengthways, stuff with thin slices of gruyère and a few pieces of ham, then bake for 8-10 minutes until warm and the cheese has melted.
  • Croutons for soup
    Heat the oven to 220°C/200°C fan/gas 7. Tear large pieces of sourdough and put on a baking sheet. Spread a little red onion chutney on each piece of bread, then top with grated gruyère. Bake for 4-5 minutes until golden. Serve on top of soup.
