Ingredients:

  • 150g Crozet sarrarin (buckwheat) Alpina Savoie
  • 150g Crozet nature (plain) Alpina Savoie
  • 1 wheel of Reblochon
  • 4 or 5 slices of cured ham, (such as Parma or Proscuitto)
  • 500mls creme fraiche
  • 1 medium brown onion
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Preparation:

  • Boil the Crozets salted boiling water (4 times the volume of Crozets) for 15 minutes.
  • Finely dice the onion, cut the raw ham into thin strips and cut the Reblochon into cubes.
  • Sweat the chopped onion until soft and transluscent.
  • Drain the Crozets and mix with the strips of ham, the onion, half of the cubed Reblochon and the crème fraiche.
  • Season to taste and pour into a large oven dish. Place the rest of the cubed Reblochon on top.
  • Bake at 180 ° C for 5 to 10 minutes or until the surface starts to colour, remove from the oven.

Suggestions: You can deglaze the onion with white wine and add a pinch of Provence herbs. You can also try replacing the Reblochon with Comté or Beaufort...
