Pea, Ham and Boursin Clafoutis

An Unusual Recipe

Recipe by  

Clafoutis is traditionally a baked French dessert of fruit (usually cherries) arranged in a buttered dish and covered with a thick flan-like batter. The clafoutis is then dusted with powdered sugar and served lukewarm, sometimes with cream. Here, we diversify and create a savoury clafoutis.

Clafoutis is sometimes spelled 'clafouti' in Anglophone countries because the 's' is not pronounced. Here, we use peas, ham and that herby Boursin cheese for a great savoury dish that's simple to make.

To serve 4:
4 slices

2½ oz
Boursin cheese (with herbs)
5 fl oz
liquid cream
7 fl oz
5 tablespoons
salt and freshly ground black pepper


How to Cook Pea, Ham and Boursin Clafoutis

  1. Separate the egg white from the yolk of ONE egg. In a bowl, mix the Boursin cheese with the yolk. Then add the other eggs one-by-one (including the white of the first egg) and mix gently with a hand whisk. Gradually incorporate the cornflour and then the liquid cream. When mixed, add the milk little-by-little. Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
  2. Cut the ham into small squares and mix with the peas. Incorporate this combination into the creamy egg-cheese mixture and dish the mixture into cocottes (a term for what most Americans know as small individual Dutch ovens). Good sized ramekins work equally well since we don't need the covers.
  3. Place the cocottes (ramekins) in a deep baking tray partly-filled with water to halfway up the side of the cocottes. Place the tray with the uncovered cocottes into a preheated moderate oven (Mk 4 - 350°F - 180°C) for 20-25 minutes. Eat hot.

Easy enough to make and tastes very, very good. I halved the quantities and made it just for two, but I'm tempted to make this again when we have someone round for a meal. This one's a keeper.

No mess, no fuss, just throw it in the oven and leave it alone till it's ready to eat. That's the approximate theory! How close do we get?
