Another winner Inez. I spotted this recipe and knew that it was something we would have to try. I followed the recipe exactly. It was fantastic and oh so very rich. We ended up only eating 1/2 of a portion which was great as we had left overs and it heats up very well. Next time I will add a little more prosciutto as mine was very thin and got lost in the cheese mixture but otherwise it was supurb!
This was OH MY GOD SO GOOD! I did change the recipe a little Like crispy bacon crumbled instead of the prosciutto, and used white onions instead of shallots and the green onions.And used brandy for the sherry. Just because i didn`t have the ingredients. This is a keeper!YUMMY!!!!
Very nice recipe! I used other recommendations & did 1/2 of the filling & added more prosciutto. I should have known better & cut the salt back more cause prosciutto is quite salty. I still found there to be more stuffing than we prefer so I will adjust more next time. I didn't have gruyere so I used a swiss/havarti mixture. I have some sliced avocado so I added 1-2 oz (chopped fine) in the filling along with a couple slivers of jalapeno pepper. I also cut back considerably on the butter. This is a very rich & filling dish with excellent flavours, thanks for sharing.
