Motorama Great Tastes: Cheesecake Filled Strawberries


The weather has been beautiful and there’s an abundance of choice for vegetables and reasonably priced fruit this week from the Brisbane Produce Market! For the great healthy choice of Broccoli or your sweet Corn fix, there will be a premium to pay this week. 

However if you’re still in the mood for some great winter dishes Cabbage, Carrots, Snow Peas, Onions Potatoes are some of the best buys for this week. Foodies during the annual Royal Queensland Show (aka. The Ekka), have associated the taste of Strawberries and this year is no different. There’s a large number of juicy berries used in ice creams, desserts and with many punnets on display at the show, they are super tasty, and at their lowest prices. 

To take advantage of the low price of Strawberries, why not try Cheesecake Stuff Strawberries? It’s a 4.5 star recipe from BigOven.com with over 3,400 favourites.
