Crunchy crumb topping adds a Mediterranean twist

Ornua Ingredients’
new Tomato and Basil Pizza Cheese Crumb is said to be ideal for adding a taste of the Mediterranean to all kinds of dishes from crusted fish to coated goujons.

This versatile crumb combines seasoned mature Cheddar cheese flavoured with the classic Italian tastes of tomato, basil and a hint of garlic, along with breadcrumbs. Easy to use straight from the chiller or from frozen, it gives a fresh taste and added crunch to dishes once cooked.

Simple ingredients such as chicken, fish and pasta can be easily enhanced to create dishes with added value without having to buy in individual ingredients or invest in the time to make breadcrumbs or tomato sauce from scratch.
