Because this garlic parmesan herb spread is so versatile, I thought we could take a look at “What I Eat In A Day” and show you 3 simple and smart meal ideas using this Garlic Parmesan Herb Spread recipe.
Garlic Parmesan Herb Spread
Let’s start with the spread. It is pretty simple, keeps well in the refrigerator for a week, and can be a great way to add flavor to a variety of dishes.
It starts with Brummel and Brown Original Spread, which is made with the wholesome goodness of real yogurt. It’s gluten free and has 0g Cholesterol or Trans-fat per serving, which I love.
While the spread is delicious and creamy on its own, adding some garlic, parmesan, dill, and parsley, amps up the flavor.
I use freshly grated parmesan cheese, as it will add mega flavor.
Fresh parsley is a great addition to the spread as it lightens up the flavors and adds dimension.
Dill weed offers some unexpected flavor, and compliments the salty cheese well.
Breakfast: Avocado Toast
Avocado toast has become wildly popular as a breakfast item because of its creamy flavor, and nutritional benefits. But also because it is super fun to customize. This recipe for Avocado toast is simple, but offers tons of flavor:
- Whole grain, Wheat Bread
- Garlic Parmesan Herb Spread made using Brummel and Brown Original Spread
- A fried egg seasoned with a little salt and pepper
- Half an Avocado
- Red Chili Pepper Flakes
To make this toast, I started with the creamy buttery Brummel and Brown Original Spread and mix it with parsley, dill weed, garlic, onion, and parmesan to make the Garlic Parmesan Herb Spread.
The Brummel and Brown Original Spread offers a delicious, rich, and creamy taste with 50% less fat and calories than butter. Instead of butter, it is made with real yogurt.
I spread this over a piece of whole grain bread, and put it in a hot skillet to toast it. Another option is to use a toaster and simply spread it over the toast after.
Once toasted, I layered on a half an avocado, a fried egg, and a sprinkle of red chili pepper flakes. You could also add a splash of hot sauce if you like things a little spicy.
The results are a flavorful, rich, and creamy avocado toast, made with half the fat and calories of butter and 0g of cholesterol.
Lunch: Lighter Grilled Cheese
I am obsessed with grilled cheese, it is comforting, delicious, and uses ingredients I always have on hand.
But I wanted a lot of flavor, and didn’t want to deal with the saturated fat, cholesterol, and calories associated with the butter or mayo often used to crisp up the exterior of the grilled cheese.
This is where Brummel and Brown Original Spread comes in. It is a blend of plant-based oils and real yogurt which makes a buttery spread that is a deliciously smart choice. It has all the creaminess but only half the fat and calories of butter and 0g cholesterol per serving.
What you need:
- 2 slices of bread of choice
- 2 slices of cheese of choice
- Garlic Parmesan Herb Spread
- Optional: Other add ins, bacon, apples, ham, turkey, roasted red peppers, avocado, sun-dried tomatoes, pesto, etc.
After making my Garlic Parmesan Herb Spread, and spreading it over my sandwich bread, I toast it in a preheated skillet with slices of Colby Jack cheese. I let it sizzle and cook to a beautiful golden brown, giving it just the right amount of crispiness on the exterior, with the added flavor from the garlic, parmesan, etc. And then the creamy cheese on the interior.
And just like the Brummel and Brown Original Spread, these grilled cheese sandwiches can be super versatile: you could dip it in a bowl of tomato soup or customize the flavor profile by adding things like ham, sliced apples, or roasted red peppers. You can quickly and easily make it yours.
Dinner: Oven Baked Salmon
One of my favorite easy dinners is salmon. On its own, salmon is a great option, as it is full of Omega-3 fatty acids, is high in Vitamin B, and is a great protein source. But when you smother it in something full of sugar or fats, it can counteract some of the benefits.
But cover it with a thin layer of the Garlic Parmesan Herb Spread, and bake it in the oven, and you have a crazy flavorful, delicious meal with all the benefits and none of the drawbacks. This is a simple sheet pan dinner that doubles as a 30-minute meal. In fact, it might even be a 15-minute meal.
Salmon typically bakes for 12-15 minutes in a 450-degree oven. Of course, this depends on the thickness of the fillet. Cook salmon to an internal temperature of 145 degrees F. so it is no longer translucent inside, and flakes easily. You may want to pull it out of the oven before it reaches 145 degrees F so that as it continues to cook, and the temperature rises, you don’t end up with overcooked salmon.
If you start to see the white stuff coming out of the salmon, know it is a coagulated protein, and another indicator your salmon is finished cooking.
Eat the salmon with a lovely salad for a complete meal that tastes amazing.
As you can see, you can get a complete days’ worth of meals using the ever versatile and creamy Brummel and Brown Original Spread.
