How to use up leftover oatcakes
- Crunchy soup topper
Whizz leftover oatcakes briefly in a food processor or mini chopper to form coarse crumbs (or bash in a sealed food bag with a rolling pin), then mix with grated gruyére cheese and a few fresh white breadcrumbs. Sprinkle on top of onion soup, then grill until the cheese melts and turns golden (make sure the bowl is ovenproof).
- Scandi canapé
Combine créme fraîche, lemon juice, snipped fresh chives and a little horseradish, then spoon onto oatcakes. Top with smoked salmon or smoked mackerel.
- Quick cheese course
Spread a little redcurrant jelly on an oatcake, top with a slice of pear or apple, then finish with a generous slice of brie or camembert. Put under a hot grill for a few minutes until the cheese has melted and the fruit has a little colour.
