HHDD#19 - Clafoutis!
My days seem way too short for what I want to do. Not much of a surprise since it's like that since... oh well, since always! But lately I just can't find enough time for all that requires my attention: family, friends, students, co-workers. And then there's the tennis - my other addiction. It's not everyday the n.1 player in the world (aka The Mighty Federer) does his way to play at my 'backyard'. So I went to Estoril, got soaked (several times) and had a sunburned nose by the end of the week... How cool is that? All for the price of one! The good thing is I got to spend time with friends I don't usually see, chitchat for hours, shot tons of pictures - oh I LOVE outdoors! - and in the end my favourite won!
Game over. Back to kitchen. It's Hay Hay it’s Donna Day time! Bron is hosting this month’s event and the super-theme she chose was clafoutis! This is my entry for this month’s Hay Hay it’s Donna Day food blogging event.
Bacon & Fig Clafoutis
For 6 small individual plates
1/2 cup whole milk
1 cup Parmesan, coarsely grated
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/4 cup pistachios, chopped
1/2 medium red onion, thinly sliced
12 dried figs, halved
1/4 cup Porto Wine
bacon (about 1 cup), cubed
salt and pepper, to taste
Preheat the oven to 180°C (360ºF).
Soak dried figs in wine for at least 1 hour to hydrate.
In a non-stick saucepan, cook bacon with a little water until golden. Add dried figs and sliced red onion, mixing to combine. Allow to cook for 2 minutes. Pour in the wine. When resumed, remove from heat. Set aside.
In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs with the grated Parmesan. Pour in the milk, and whisk until combined. Add in the flour, mixing continuously. Season with pepper and a pinch of salt (depending on how salty the bacon is). Place the bacon mixture evenly into 6 individual greased heatproof plates. Pour the bater on top. Sprinkle with chopped pistachios. Bake for 20 minutes or until cooked through. Serve immediately, with a rocket salad.
