Cheesy Twists to Your Christmas Faves


Christmas is almost upon us. We are looking forward to the festive dishes that will be served during family gatherings, especially on Noche Buena. The more people and food, the merrier!

Every family has their own recipes served on Noche Buena that they have mastered and improved over decades. After all Christmas is all about traditions, and it’s a wonderful thing to share traditions with the people closest to you. But it’s also the perfect time to start your own traditions. Where better to start than with the food you’re serving on Noche Buena! It might be time to revamp your Christmas cookbook with cheesy twists to those traditional dishes.

Liven up your Noche Buena table with Danes Cheese Ball. It’s creamy, delicious and cheesy on its own. But what’s even better is that it’s so versatile you can mix it into your own recipes or make new dishes with it!

Here are four dishes that can then make your Noche Buena handa extra special:

1. Spaghetti

Spaghetti is a Filipino party essential and Christmas is no exception! Something about this just screams, “Let’s celebrate!” This Christmas, why not make your sweet spaghetti even better with cheese mixed into the sauce. Then sprinkle a lot of cheese on top. This will surely be a hit with the kids!

2. Caldereta

Every mom has a specialty dish, and you can expect it served on the grandest occasion of the year. Caldereta is one of the most popular mommy specialties. It’s a common heirloom recipe passed on from generation to generation. Adding cheese to the sauce makes it even more savory.

3. Kakanin

When the Simbang Gabi starts, churches will be surrounded with stalls that sell colorful delicacies like bibingka and puto bumbong. As an appetizer or dessert, we can’t get enough of kakanin, especially with cheese sprinkled on top of them! Besides, nearly everything is better with cheese, right?

4. Fruit Salad

What’s Noche Buena without Lola or Tita’s fruit salad? Most of us probably even helped making this as a kid, right? Bonding over Noche Buena preparations is a special part of our family memories. It’s a really cheesy moment we share with our families.

These are just some of the dishes you can make with Danes Cheese Ball, you can mix it into your own recipes or make new dishes with it. It’s great eaten on its own and it’s great with your signature dishes as well.

Danes Cheese Ball is available in all leading groceries and supermarkets. #HappyHoliDanes, indeed!
