Cheese, Vegetables and Fruits
You could call it a ham and cheese cigar, accompanied by a tarragon and tomato sauce.
IngredientsRecipe for 4
Tarragon tomato sauce
- Salt and pepper
- Vegetable oil
Preparation time: 45 min
Preheat your Four at 400 °F
- Ham and cheese cigar
Roll the slices of bread individually with a rolling pin until nice and thin. Spread with butter. Place a slice of ham and a slice of cheese. Roll it until you form a sort of cigar shape and then brush lightly with more butter to stick the edges.
Let rest in the fridge for half an hour, this will make it easier to cook. In a hot skillet, sear the cigars by starting with the open side down first.
Once nice and golden, transfer to a baking sheet and when ready to serve, reheat in the oven.
- Tarragon tomato sauce
In a sauce pot with oil, sweat the onions and then lower the heat. After one minute, add the sugar, garlic, thyme and a bay leaf and continue to cook for 5 minutes. Add the vinegar and then continue to cook until fully evaporated. Add the can of tomatoes.
Let cook for 10 minutes, add the tarragon and then blend. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
On a serving platter, place a bowl of sauce in the center. Place the cigars all around the sauce bowl. Garnish the sauce with a few leaves of fresh tarragon.
If you have a panini press, it is quite easy to cook the cigars with the panini press instead of in a skillet. Feel free to use the cheese of your choice.
