1. Shakshuka


Looking for a meal that’s bursting with flavor? Try shakshuka! This delectable dish, popular in The Middle East and North Africa, features poached eggs nestled in a spicy tomato-based sauce. It’s a great combination made even better with the addition of Lifeway Farmer Cheese. Our handcrafted, artisan cheese has a cool and tangy flavor that balances out the acidity of the tomatoes and enhances the richness of the eggs. With fresh cilantro, parsley, and a delicate blend of warm spices, this savory and spicy dish is perfect for breakfast, brunch, or a quick dinner.


2. Eggs Benedict and Crispy Prosciutto Toast

And, did we mention it’s loaded with vitamins from the arugula and grape tomatoes, both of which are full of flavor and nutrition. Our small-batch cheese also adds live probiotics for gut health, which is something not all types of cheese can claim. The taste is amazing. The texture is divine. Each bite of this recipe gives a satisfying little snap from the crispy prosciutto and garlic-smeared toasted sourdough.  We hope you love it as much as we do!
