This is a very unique recipe that was entered into our WayCo Country Ham Recipe Contest by Carol Nall. Sounds delicious!
- 1 roll of flaky biscuits
- 1 square of Emmantaler cheese
- Grated Parmesan cheese
- 1 small onion
- A few slices of country ham, butter and small amount of sherry.
- Finely slice onion and caramelize in butter.
- When wilted and not quite brown, add the country ham, julienned into about 2 to 3 inch bits.
- Stir well until all cooks a few more minutes, turn the heat off, add about a 1/4 cup of Sherry and cover.
- Remove the flaky biscuits from the roll and on a big cutting board, “floured” with grated Parmesan cheese, roll them out with a rolling pin to make a flat crust.
- Shake grated Parm cheese on the board to keep them from sticking and on top to keep from sticking to the rolling pin. (I usually don’t use the whole roll- just go by how big you want the crust).
- Place on a non-stick cookie sheet, rolling the edges back a little all around to make a crust that will contain melted cheese.
- Take 1/2 of the Emmantaler and slice it into fine slices. Coarsely grate the other half.
- Cover what has now become something of a pizza or tarte crust with the cheese slices and grated cheese to fill in the empty spots. A few shakes of grated Parm cheese helps, too.
- Remove the onion/ham mixture and arrange on top of the cheesy crust. Bake in a 425 oven for 15 + minutes or until the cheese has melted and the crust is golden.
- Allow to cool slightly and slice into little rectangles.
Thanks Carol for the recipe!
