Hearty Apfelküchli from the oven with farmhouse cheese, ham and cucumber salad. A hay cheese recipe for feasting 500 calories.
You have to add such delicious things as apple pie, cheese and ham a change in diet - oh, let's just call the child bluntly by name - so when losing weight - renounce for eternity? No way! It is very important to me that I have "real food" on my plate and as many food groups as possible appear in it. I could never live for weeks exclusively on steamed vegetables, cottage cheese or any protein drinks. A terrible idea! If you combine food smartly and keep an eye on the crowd, you can really treat yourself to the tastiest things. Such as these hot, baked in the oven sweet-herhzaften Apfelküchli with farmhouse cheese, ham and cucumber salad. My mouth is watering when writing - and I'm sure you want it on your plate!
Usually apple fritters are fried with a sweet dough in boiling fat. My pimped variant is baked in the oven and is so much more, much slimmer. And because I love sweet-and-salty combinations, the kitchens get no sugar, but a wonderful hearty extra missed: spicy cottage cheese and smoked ham - together with the baked apple an absolutely unbeatable team!
A really great Team player for salty-sweet combinations is eg Salzburg farmhouse cheese. I got to know him last year about my haywire-connection and the great project Sennermeetsblogger of the AMA. This sliced cheese from Austrian hay milk g.t.S. is very mild in itself, but at the same time brings a great spicy taste. It also melts fantastically - and as you know, there's nothing that does not get better with a good melted cheese, alright.
Let's talk about hay milk, baby! Or: Dear less - but really good.
The Salzburger Bauernkäse is produced by the Feinkäserei Woerle. There, since 1889, they have been dealing with the production of Austrian cheese specialties. The family business in the Salzburg region has now been fattening for five generations - exclusively with Heumilch g.t.S. This special milk comes from the hay milk farmers of the Salzburger and Mondseelandes and is processed fresh.
The Heumlich cows are in their farmers throughout the summer mostly free on the pasture and eat only the fresh green grass and hundreds of different herbs , In the winter months, the happy cows are off to the stable. There they only get sun-dried hay from the pastures and cereal meal. Feed from silage, concentrates or feed with genetic engineering are prohibited. This original, natural way of feeding later decisively determines the taste of the milk - and also that of the cheese. The EU therefore has this special milk specialty with the seal g.t.S. "Protected traditional specialty" awarded.
And of such a good cheese you do not need tons of food to have a great taste experience.First a simple (pancake) dough is mixed. While being allowed to swell briefly, you can wonderfully prepare the apple slices with ham and grate the cheese. Then the dough, the apple slices and the cheese come into the mold and cheerfully bake in the oven. In the meantime, the cucumber salad is quickly chopped up - and a few minutes later it gets really tasty.
The hot apple kitchens are brown on the outside and soft and juicy on the inside. The baked sweet apple with the salty smoked ham and the aromatic cheese to a sinfully good experience - two Küchlis together with a decent portion of cucumber salad but just 500 calories. You can not resist that anymore. You do not have to. Great!
