Leek and ham crozet gratin

Written by admin

With the cold that it is now, I launched into a gratin of ham and leek crozets. It’s a comforting dish that’s easy to make with easy-to-find ingredients.
If you do not know crozets, they are small square-shaped pasta, originating from Savoie. They are made from durum wheat or buckwheat, and I have a preference for the latter. They lend themselves very well to gratin recipes and their format of small squares is perfect for tasting.
In this recipe, they are first cooked in the classic way. Use the cooking water to cook the leeks. They are then sautéed in the pan with the onion. Add the mustard cream then the crozets and slide the preparation into a baking dish. Sprinkle with strips of cured ham and sprinkle the whole thing with the Beaufort then bake in the oven. This family dish is served hot to make the most of the flavours.
