Can you believe that today is the last Sunday in 2013?
2014 will be here in 3 days already...
I won't bore you with a long review of the year but let me say that it's been a fun one when it comes to baking.
But I won't continue in 2014. Other things await that need my full attention in 2014 (please visit www.sarahbucher.ch if you are curious).
Plus - it's time to lose at least some of the weight that I gained from all those cakes and cookies ;)
I hope you're not too disappointed if I end the year (and this blog, at least for now) with a pretty simple and savory baking recipe. But I think it is fitting for a new direction. And it is a very good recipe to have at hand for breakfast and brunch guests (I made it on Christmas morning last year and this year again), as a hangover cure, or just as a small, quick, and comforting meal.
Baked Eggs with Ham and Cheese
From Two Tarts
For each serving you need:
1-2 slices of raw/dry-cured ham
1 teaspoon heavy cream
1 teaspoon grated cheese
- Put one or two slices of ham in a ramekin so that the bottom and sides are covered.
- Crack one egg over the ham. Drizzle with cream, sprinkle with cheese, season with pepper. (No salt is needed because the ham is salty enough).
- Bake in preheated oven at 190°C (375°F) for 10-12 minutes. Serve immediately.
I used a bit less cream and cheese than in the original recipe because I think 1 teaspoon each is enough.
So good, so comforting, so filling. And so quick and easy.
Definitely something to make more often.
How do you end the year? Any specific recipes you make?
