The other day, I went to the restaurant and I saw this dish on the menu : Welsh. What ? I had never heard of it. I didn't order that, but it stayed on my mind and I decided to try it myself.
As you can guess from the name, this dish is... Welsh. If you want to boast about it, let me tell you that the Welsh name is "caws-wedi-pobi". (Does it not make you want to learn Welsh?)
The ideal for the presentation is to have some individual flat moulds. If not do like me, use some aluminium paper. Less cute but as operational.
I tried two versions: regular and with an egg. Choose which one you prefer. I preferred the one with the egg, it is tastier. I recommend you serve it with a green salad.
Ingredients (for 2 people)
2 slices of soft bread
250 g cheddar
15 cl beer
1 soup spoon mustard
2 small slices of ham
1 egg (optional)
Some green salad (highly recommended)
Pre-heat the oven at 180°C.
Brown the bread. Put it in individual moulds (or you can create compartments in a gratin dish like in the picture 3). Cover the bread with ham.
In a sauce pan, heat the beer. Add the cheddar cut in dices and the mustard. Cook until you obtain a creamy mixture and pour on the bread. If you chose to serve it with an egg, break it on the top.
Bake for 10 min in the oven.
Bon appétit !!
