This is a quick supper I put together for my kids. Since the photo looks so colourful, I decide to make a post just for it. It is basically crackers, brie cheese, Thompson green seedless grape and flame seedless grape plus strawberry.
Brie cheese is a type of soft cheese with not much taste (to our Asian tastebuds, i.e.) and needs to be enhance with something sweet like fruits.
A word of caution :
- Remember to use an absolutely clean and dry cutting board.
- Never give your small children whole grapes because they are choking hazards.
- Pregnant mothers are cautioned not to eat Brie or any type of mouldy, soft cheese.
- Moms, please make sure your child is not allergic to dairy foods and can tolerate cheese.
This is a good finger food for both adults and kids. The combination of the creamy cheese, saltish and crispy cracker, sweet and sourish fruits make it a delicious and nutritious quick snack.
Normally, it is preferred to use table water crackers but I found it a little too hard for small children. I had eaten this l crackers from 5-star hotels cocktail and found them to be delicious. In fact, I had to take a peek at the cabinet of one of hotel (when the waitresses aren’t watching 😛 ) to find out the brand of crackers they used. It turned out to be local made crackers which cost only RM2+ per big packet.
The famous cap ping pong creamcrackers manufacturer – Hup Seng produced these bite sizes crackers. They come in three flavours, i.e. original, cheese and vegetable. Nice eaten on its own too.
