Firstly apologies for the long gap in the blog. I decided as part of a health kick to do ‘dry January’, which unfortunately meant that I could trust myself to cook my remaining (alcoholic) recipes, so I had to wait until wet February to continue the blog, when dry January was well and truly over.
This recipe, is a bit of a cheat meal…it’s like combing your baguette sandwich and glass of wine all in one and baked, full of cheesy goodness. I call it my wine-boosted baguette, or simply the Boozy Baguette. The wine I used in this recipe was a sweet Moscato from BareFoot wines (because I had a particular sweet-tooth moment), but any grape variety will work.
Preparation time: 5 minutes
Cooking time: 25 minutes
Ingredients (per person):
- ½ baguette;
- 1 glass of white wine;
- 3 slices of ham (try to get it from the butcher rather than the pre-packed stuff) cut into bite-size pieces;
- one handful of grated gruyère cheese
- smooth Dijon mustard
- Pre-heat the oven to 200°C.
- Slice the baguette into 2-inch slices and place cut side down into a baking dish. Pour over the glass of wine so a little seeps into each piece of baguette.
- Spread a small amount of mustard on each slice. Then sprinkle over the ham and top with the grated cheese.
- Put in the oven for 25 minutes or until crispy and golden on top. Serve with the rest of wine.
