Nobody likes bland food, right? We all love a bit of flavour - me, particularly so. I adore a good slather of rich, salty butter here, some tangy American mustard there, and a drizzle of ranch dressing all over, but I like it even more when my favourite flavours come together to create an infusion that'll liven up any dish.
Recently, my favourite condiment to pair with my lunchtime snacks has been Lurpak's new Infusions range*. These little boxes of goodness feature Lurpak butter combined with a variety of flavours: Chilli & Lime, a zingy number with an intense bite; Sea Salt & Pink Peppercorn, a very savoury and subtly peppery flavour; and my favourite, Smoked Chipotle, a super smokey, meaty, creamy flavour (if I had to pick one thing to spread on my sandwiches for the rest of my life, this might just be it).
Slather these onto some rye crispbread, toasted tiger bread or some wholemeal tortilla wraps along with your favourite toppings for a super tasty snack, or follow my two recipes below!
