3/4 teaspoon dry mustard
2 teaspoons sesame seeds
1 teaspoon mild paprika
1 and 1/2 tablespoons parmesan cheese, grated

Food Facts:

Cheese is extremely popular due to its variety of tastes and textures. Some cheeses like feta and mozzarella are mostly used in salads or on pizzas. Other cheeses, both hard and soft are perfect for cheese boards where their flavours can be truly appreciated. Cheeses contain valuable amounts of protein, calcium, vitamins and minerals but some cheeses, particularly hard ones, are high in saturated fat. Cheeses fall into two categories - hard and unripened. Hard cheeses are generally matured for many months and their flavours develop over this time. Examples of hard cheeses are cheddar, parmesan, goat's cheese, haloumi, feta and mozzarella. Unripened cheeses are young and immature and they have a light, mild taste. Examples are ricotta, cottage, fromage frais, quark and cream cheese. Enjoy cheese but be aware of the fat content and the amount you consume
