Ingredients

  • 1 lb 450 g (1 liter) cheddar cheese
  • 8 8 eggeggs
  • 1½ cups 350 ml heavy whipping cream
  • salt and pepper
For serving
  • 1 lb 450 g smoked deli ham
  • 1 tbsp 1 tbsp butter
  • 7 oz. 200 g lettuce
  • 4 tbsp 4 tbsp olive oil
  • ½ tbsp ½ tbsp red wine vinegar
  • salt and pepper

Instructions

Instructions are for 4 servings. Please modify as needed.

  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C).
  2. Grate all of the cheese and place half of it in a big bowl. Whisk together the eggs and cream with a fork, and add to the bowl. Season with salt and pepper.
  3. Place the rest of the cheese in piles, one per serving, on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  4. Place in the oven for 5-10 minutes or until the cheese has melted completely. Remove from oven and turn oven down to 350°F (175°C). Allow the puddles of cheese to cool slightly but not completely.
  5. Using a spatula, place the still pliable cheese puddles over greased ramekins or other serving sized baking dishes (approximately 5-6" in diameter). Guide the cheese to conform to the shape of each dish to form a crust. Let cheese crusts harden completely.
  6. Pour in the egg mixture and bake the pies in 350°F (175°C) oven for about 15-20 minutes, until they are set and have turned a nice golden color.
  7. Mix olive oil, vinegar, salt and pepper to a simple vinaigrette. Prepare the salad.
  8. Shred the ham and fry in butter. Serve with the pies, salad and vinaigrette.

Tip!

These mini-pies are delicious at room temperature or even cold. They are perfect for a picnic or as a packed lunch. Or, serve as a filling first course for any meal.

    These are really good, but take WAY longer than 15-20 minutes to cook through, for me. Perhaps my ramekins are too narrow and deep, but they're pretty standard. It's takes me a good 40-45 minutes to get them fully cooked.

    I wondered if I did something wrong! Mine have been in for 20 minutes and still very soupy
