Course: Spreads
Cuisine: Caribbean
Author: Felix (Simply Trini Cooking)


  • ¼ lb. cheese
  • 2 oz butter
  • 1 tsp. mustard
  • ½ tsp. pepper sauce or 1 dash of white pepper
  • ¼ cup of grated carrots raw
  • ½ tsp. grated onion optional


  • Grate the cheese and place in a bowl. Add the butter, a little at a time. Add mustard, pepper, and (if you wish) onion.
  • Blend well until smooth. If mixture is not soft enough add a little bit of milk. Mix well. Can be used as a filling for puffs.


For sandwiches, you can add a drop of red or green food colouring to the paste. Again, mix well before spreading on to the slices of bread.
You can add mayonnaise to make it creamier as in the filling for puffs
You can add grated carrot to the cheese paste: Add some grated carrots to this mixture and blend well until smooth. The more carrots you add, the deeper the colour. The carrot is a good natural substitute for the food colouring.
