Not quite Masterchef, but still a cool cook-off, using breakfast biscuits

February 3, 2017

Take a professional chef, kitchen, keen and very non-professional cooks, Nutrific breakfast biscuits and the chance of winning a prize for the best dish, and you have all the ingredients for a fun event with tasty results.

The Nutrific #1000Ways event this week was so much fun, and even had a bit of adrenaline as chef Matt Manning counted down the seconds until we had to have our final dishes prepared.

Presented with a table full of ingredients, we had to compile a dish – sweet or savoury – using Nutrific Breakfast Biscuits.

Who knew the humble breakfast could yield so many tasty recipes? Well, Google did, as days before, my cooking partner Melinda Queck and I took to the internet to be inspired by some recipes that we could use. Little did we know that our hero ingredients of condensed milk, cocoa and coconut weren't going to be available, so we had to think on the spot about what to make for the cookoff (something I'm very bad at when it comes to food).

Some Nutrific, Caramel Treat, cream, chocolate and peanut brittle later, and Melinda and I were on your way to making a dessert, inspired by the good 'ol Peppermint Crisp pudding.

It was easy to make – just the way I like it. We started with a layer of Nutrific, mixed with melted butter, topped with a layer of caramel and whipped cream, and then sprinkled with some chocolate and peanut brittle.

Our dessert, though not award-winning, was divine, and though I never could have imagined it, the Nutrific base was awesome, and something I'd probably use as a dessert base again.

For ideas on how to spruce up your breakfast biscuits, head to the Nutrific site, which is full of really quick and easy ideas, most of which just need a few minutes, and require ingredients that you probably have at home.

    Oh wow! Now that is definitely the right way to spruce up my breakfast! 😄😄
    I see this was an event, but is there a place you can go to to get cooking lessons with your partner? Been trying to find something like that.

      We were at HTA School of Culinary Art, and I’m not sure they offer what you’re looking for. I’m on their website and it looks like they offer full-time and part-time courses. More info here:
