Country Ham Recipe

Appetizer Using WayCo Country Ham

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!

WayCo Country Ham and Cheddar Quiche

This recipe comes to us from Anne-Marie Wright:

“I’ve fed this to folks who claim they hate quiche and by the time they are done they are begging for the recipe. I’ve had so much quiche that is way too eggy…it should be creamy. So start with a pie crust and blind bake it (google it). I make my own crust because most you buy have sugar in them, which doesn’t work with a savory dish also.”

  • In a separate bowl, whisk three eggs
  • 1 1/2 cup heavy cream NOT milk or half and half)
  • 1/4 tsp fresh grated nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • A dash of salt (because the ham will salt the dish)
  • Pour it over the ingredients in the pie (small pieces of WayCo Country Ham; put in enough to satisfy you!), bake 350 degrees until the middle is firm-ish…still just a tad jiggly.
  • Let sit for 10 minutes

Enjoy!
