Cheesy-Seedy Bark

Updated: Mar 15


When Friday nights roll along, I look forward to a cocktail and a nibble on the side. While it's hard to resist a platter of cheese and crackers, sometimes I'm looking for something a little healthier. Cheesy-Seedy Bark is the answer. I mixed Asiago cheese and a variety of seeds and baked the mixture in the oven. Once cooled, I had a wonderfully flavored snack. The cheese, along with the mixed nutty taste of all of the seeds, is delicious. The best part is that this is a make-ahead treat, so it's ready when you're ready.


Ingredients for Cheesy-Seedy Bark:


5 ounces of Asiago cheese, shredded

4 tablespoons raw pumpkin seeds

4 tablespoons raw sunflower seeds

3 tablespoons flax seeds

1 tablespoon black sesame seeds

1 tablespoon sesame seeds

1 tablespoon poppy seeds


Time-Saving Tip: Prepare the bark a day in advance, so it completely cools and hardens.


Let's see what we need.


We're ready to cook.



Combine the ingredients.


Spread the mixture on a parchment-lined sheet pan. Try to make it smooth on the top and flatten it. Bake in a preheated 425-degree oven until golden. Remove from the oven and let cool completely. If you have a cooling rack, slide the bark on the rack to cool. The bark is great when made a day in advance.


It's ready! Cheesy-Seedy Bark is a deliciously easy snack to prepare. It's perfect with cocktails and for nibbling throughout the day.


Enjoy!
