Ingredients

How to make it

  • Butter your ramekins and line them with sheets of parchment paper.
  • Preheat your oven at 350 F.
  • Peel and thinly slice the potatoes and cook them for 5 to 7 mns in salted boiling water.
  • Slice the fennel thinly and cook for 7 mins in salted boiling water.
  • Peel and core the apple. Slice it thinly (add a few drops of lemon to prevent oxydation).
  • Slice the onion and cook if for 10 mins in olive oil with the garlic, until soft.
  • In a bowl, beat together the eggs and milk, and season with salt and pepper. Add the nutmeg.
  • Line slices of potatoes around the edge of the ramekin and place a few at the bottom. Keep them tight.
  • Continue with a layer of onions and a layer of fennel and pear slices and cheese.
  • Continue layering until you run out of room.
  • Pour in the egg batter, making sure that it goes down all the way to the bottom.
  • Cook in the oven for 45 to 50 mins. Check whether the top potatoes are cooked and wait a few mins when taking out before unmolding on a plate
  • Garnish with asparagus tips, (I served the rest of the asparagus separately in a balsamic vinaigrette with parmesan).

    This sounds delicious and looks beautiful. The combination of potatoes, strong cheeses and apples sounds divine. I'll have to get the husband on this one. He doesn't really share my passion for potatoes, but I think this one might tempt him!
