Tweet #pin-wrapper > a {background-image:none !important;} From the Kitchen of One Perfect Bite... A gastropub is a bar and restaurant that serves high-end beer and food without pretension. Who knew? Certainly not me. I had no idea what a gastropub was until I started looking for information about April Bloomfield. It turns out that she is a Michelin star chef who would have become a police officer had she not missed the application deadline for the academy in her hometown of Birmingham, England. By default, she followed in the footsteps of her sisters who were working in restaurant kitchens. Following graduation from the Birmingham College of Food, Tourism and Creative Studies, she continued her training in some very prestigious kitchens that included Kensington Place, Bibendum, Roscoff and the legendary River Cafe. She came to the United States and worked in the kitchen of Chez Panisse with Alice Waters before opening her own restaurant, a small and casual gastropub, called The Spotted Pig, in New York City. The restaurant features seasonal British and Italian food designed to highlight the simple beauty of fine ingredients. Portion control and elegant or fussy presentations are left to others. The Spotted Pig won a Michelin star in 2005 when April Bloomfield was just 31 years old. She and her partner, Ken Friedman, have since opened two other restaurants, the Breslin and the now defunct John Dory Oyster Bar. She has also written her first cookbook, A Girl and Her Pig , which is a collection of her best recipes complete with backstories that also reveal bits about her life and cooking philosophy. I found a wonderful link to a New Yorker feature about her that's very insightful and well worth reading. Take a peak if you can. She has accomplished a lot for a woman not yet 40 and she has earned her place on the Gourmet Live list of 50 Women Game Changers in Food. The recipe I've chosen to highlight the food created and served by April Bloomfield is a brunch entree that is served at the Breslin. This is an outstanding way to begin the day. Each element of the dish, and there are three, is delicious in its own right, but when they are brought together culinary magic occurs. The pancakes are large enough to please Paul Bunyon, though I suggest you serve them hot from the griddle. They are light when warm but tend to become heavy and damp as they cool. The ricotta cheese is the perfect creamy topper for them. My favorite element of the three is the orange syrup which is spectacular. I was struck by the balance and restraint of this lovely citrus syrup and I will use it often for other dishes that I cook. This, coincidentally, makes a wonderful topping for those who do not use alcohol in their cooking. I hope that you will try this lovely entree. Here's the recipe. The Breslin Ricotta Pancakes with Orange Syrup ...from the kitchen of One Perfect Bite courtesy of April Bloomfield Ingredients: Orange Syrup 1 orange 1 cup fresh orange juice 1 cup sugar 1 cup water Ricotta Topping 1-1/2 cups fresh ricotta 1-1/2 tablespoons sugar 3/4 teaspoon finely grated lemon zest Seeds scraped from 1/2 vanilla bean Pancakes 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour 1/4 cup fine white cornmeal 2 tablespoons sugar 1/2 teaspoon salt 1/2 teaspoon baking powder 1/2 teaspoon baking soda 2 cups buttermilk 2 large eggs, separated 1/2 cup fresh ricotta Vegetable oil, for frying Toasted almond slices, for serving Directions: 1) To make syrup: Peel zest from the orange in long strips and julienne. In a saucepan of boiling water, blanch zest for 30 seconds. Drain and repeat. In a saucepan, simmer orange juice, sugar, water and blanched zest until syrupy, about 10 minutes. Let cool. 2) To make ricotta topping: Mix ricotta, sugar, lemon zest and vanilla seeds in a bowl. 3) To make pancakes: Whisk whisk flour, cornmeal, sugar, salt, baking powder and soda in a large bowl. In another large bowl, whisk buttermilk, egg yolks and ricotta. Fold wet ingredients into dry ingredients. In a large, clean stainless steel bowl, beat the egg whites until stiff but not dry; fold them into the batter. 4) To cook: In a large cast-iron skillet, heat a thin film of vegetable oil. Drop in 1/4-cup dollops of batter and cook over moderately high heat, 2 minutes per side, until golden and fluffy. Serve about 3 pancakes per person. Pass the orange syrup, ricotta topping and toasted almonds at the table. Yield: 4 servings. The following bloggers are also featuring the recipes of April Bloomfield today.

From the kitchen of One Perfect Bite...l She appeared on the scene at a time when celebrity chefs still wore button-down "dress" whites and their cookbooks, for the most part, were formulaic "knit one, purl two" instruction manuals. This photogenic daughter of the British peerage seemingly burst out of nowhere, and, with her famous come-hither grin, convinced us that a lusty appreciation of good food was an acceptable extension of the good life. I speak, of course, of the domestic goddess, Nigella Lawson, who is being featured this week on our on-going series of women on the Gourmet Live list of 50 Women Game Changers in Food. She is a wife, mother, writer and media personality who happens to come from a distinguished and privileged background. Her father was Chancellor of the Exchequer in Margaret Thatcher's government and her mother, a great beauty, was an heiress with an impeccable background. She attended Oxford where she received a Master's degree in Medieval and Modern Languages and she went on to become the deputy editor of The Sunday Times. Her love of food led to some cross-over in her writing, and she began to write a food-column for The Spectator magazine. She married John Diamond, a broadcaster and fellow journalist while writing for the magazine, and he was instrumental in transforming her appearance and developing her public persona. Her first book, 'How to Eat: The Pleasures and Principles of Good Food', was published in 1998 and it was the springboard to her television series 'Nigella Bites.' The show was a huge success and it led to a second book and another series. In 2000, she published her 3rd book, 'How To Be A Domestic Goddess', which was voted Cookery Book of the Year' by the Guild of Food Writers the following year. While it was a period of professional success, she lost her mother, sister and husband to cancer during this time. She took a brief rest and then went on to write 'Forever Summer', 'Feast: Food that Celebrates' and 'Nigella Express'. Her books have sold over 3 million copies and she has continued to appear on television, here, and in Britain. My favorite Nigella story regards an appearance she made with the heiress Gloria Vanderbilt on an Anderson Cooper show years ago. Vanderbilt is Cooper's mother and I think it is fair to say she did not do a lot of cooking when he was a child. At any rate, she and Nigella were friends and they agreed to appear on the program to do a dry run of the Thanksgiving meal Gloria planned to make for her son. Nigella walked and talked her through stuffing and roasting a turkey and things went swimmingly, save for the fact that Anderson Cooper was so stunned to see his mother in an apron, that he had a fit of giggles he could not control. His mom just beamed. It was a gotcha smile if ever there was one. I wonder if he got the wish bone that year? While the food that Nigella Lawson prepares is very approachable, I have yet to come across a recipe that represents a culinary breakthrough. Her food is seductive and nicely done but her books are not places you will find innovation or new techniques. Her recipes are interpretations of food she has eaten and enjoyed and I am fine with that. With that in mind, I wanted to chose a recipe that I had had elsewhere and compare her version to it. I chose Liptauer cheese, a personal favorite of mind. There are many recipes for this wonderful cheese spread and while I really liked Nigella's version on bagels, I prefer my old stand-by for snacks and appetizers. There are no pitfalls in the recipe below. I hope you will give it a try. Here's Nigella's guide to making Liptauer cheese. Liptauer Cheese ...from the kitchen of One Perfect Bite courtesy of Nigella Lawson Ingredients: 18 ounces cream cheese 2-1/4 cups cottage cheese 4-5 tablespoons capers 8 cornichons, chopped 3 teaspoons paprika Pinch of salt Good grating of black pepper 2 teaspoons caraway seeds 2 teaspoons French mustard For drizzling over: 1-2 tablespoons flavorless vegetable oil Fat pinch of paprika Directions: Beat the two cheeses together until they are smooth, and then add all the other ingredients. Mix everything together well, and then turn into a small bowl with a capacity of approximately 1 quart, lined with plastic wrap for easier unmolding later. Smooth the top with a spatula and cover with the overhanging plastic wrap. Place it in the refrigerator to set. I put a couple of cans on top to press it down, but I don't feel it's crucial. I think it's because my mother was always putting pâté and suchlike in the refrigerator with weights on. When it has become cold enough to turn out — a few hours should do it — unwrap the folded-over plastic wrap on top, place a plate over the now uncovered bowl, turn it the other way out and unmold. Pull the plastic wrap off and drizzle over a rust-red ooze, made by mixing the oil with a pinch of paprika. Serve this with bread or poppy-seed-sprinkled bagels, gherkins, and, if you like, some chopped red onions. The following bloggers are also featuring the recipes of Nigella Lawson today.

1 day-old loaf unsliced white bread, crust removed and broken into 3/4-inch cubes 2 pints whole milk (1 liter) 1 onion , peeled and quartered 4 cloves 2 fresh bay leaves 1 teaspoon white peppercorns 2 blades fresh mace or 1 teaspoon ground mace 2 teaspoons salt 1 ounce butter (30g) 2 tablespoons double cream (optional) or 2 tablespoons clotted cream (optional) or 2 tablespoons whipping cream (optional) 1 fresh nutmeg , for grating 1 Remove the crust from the bread and tear the stripped loaf into a mound of rough chunks or cubes about 2cm/(3/4-in) in size. You should end up with 175-200g (6 1/4-7 /4 oz) of cubes. If the bread is not slightly stale already, leave the pieces out on a wire rack to dry out. 2 Pour the milk into a saucepan. Press a clove into each quarter of the onion. 3 Add the onion quarters, bay leaves, peppercorns and the blades of mace (or sprinkle the ground mace into the pan) along with the salt and bring to the mixture almost to its boiling point. 4 Remove the pan from the heat. Cover the pan with a lid and let the ingredients infuse for at least half an hour, though you can leave it for a few hours if that helps with your cooking schedule. 5 After the mixture has infused, place the pan back on a very low heat. Using a slotted spoon, remove the onions, peppercorns, cloves, bay leaves and the blades of mace. 6 Add the bread to the saucepan and cook for about 15 minutes, stirring every now and then, by which time the sauce should have become thick and warm. 7 Just before serving the bread sauce, add the butter to the saucepan and stir until the butter has melted and combined with the sauce and season, to taste, with salt. 8 Add the cream (if using). Grate over quite a bit of nutmeg, adding more once you have poured the bread sauce into a warmed bowl or gravy boat.

Snickers Caramel Apple Salad posted by Jamie on October 17, 2014 Snickers Caramel Apple Salad is a deliciously sweet dessert that’s perfect for Fall. Snickers candy bars are combined with Granny Smith apples, cheesecake pudding, whipped topping and salted caramel sauce – grab a spoon and dig in! A couple weeks ago, we took Elle on her first trip to the apple orchard – complete with apple picking, hayrides, kettle corn (the best I’ve ever tasted) and loads of family. And guess how long she stayed awake? About 20 whole minutes. Basically it was enough time to place her face into a wooden pumpkin cutout for photos, take a brief hayride to the orchard, and snap a few more photos of her picking apples. I consider this a total baby victory. Of course, our conversations centered around apples, apple desserts and the ridiculous about of money the place was charging for pumpkins. Seriously though, $15 for a pumpkin? Slightly crazypants. My aunt brought up Snickers Caramel Apple Salad – a recipe that her friend had given her. She claimed it was so good that she made it twice in one day. Once for a work function and the other to scarf down in the comfort of her own home. Whenever someone tells me they’ve made a recipe twice in one day, it immediately jumps to the top of my must-make list. Now, I am fully aware that calling anything that utilizes Snickers candy bars as an ingredient a salad is quite a stretch, but since there are apples involved, I figured we could all just let the whole salad thing slide. Especially since we fully recognize that this is 100% dessert. Snickers Caramel Apple Salad couldn’t be easier or more delicious. And it’s a great way to use up some of the apples from your own apple orchard adventures. I’ve seen many variations of this recipe online that use different flavors of pudding and candy bars, so I just used what I had on hand. Granny Smith apples, Snickers, cheesecake pudding mix because um, it’s cheesecake flavored, and homemade salted caramel sauce. And it was absolutely amazing. I even let Elle have a couple of bites, since she DID pick 2 apples. If you’re looking for a simple and delicious recipe to bring to Fall potlucks and parties, Snickers Caramel Apple Salad is just the recipe for you. It’s a few simple ingredients, and since it’s pretty decadent, small bites are totally appropriate. Meaning this recipe can stretch and stretch to feed a crowd. I found that the tartness of the Granny Smith apples and slight saltiness of the caramel sauce tamed the sweetness a bit and in opinion, made this dessert a little more addictive. Now that’s what I call a winner. Snickers Caramel Apple Salad Yield: 12 servings Prep Time: 10 minutes Ingredients: 1 1/2 cups cold milk (I used 2%) 1 3.4-ounce package instant cheesecake pudding mix 1 8-ounce tub of frozen whipped topping (Cool Whip) 4 large Granny Smith apples, chopped 4 full size Snickers candy bars, chopped into bite size pieces homemade salted caramel sauce, optional Directions: In a large bowl, whisk together the milk and dry pudding mix. Let the pudding mix set up for about 3 minutes then use a rubber spatula to fold in the whipped topping. Add in apples and Snickers. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours. Before serving, drizzle with salted caramel sauce. Notes: Snickers Caramel Apple Salad is best served the day it is served, but will keep in the refrigerator for up to 1 day.

Potato Quiche posted by Jamie on April 2, 2015 Potato quiche may be loaded with ham, bacon, cheese, and onions – but that just means it’s loaded with flavor too. Made easy with a quick Bisquick crust! This is a sponsored post on behalf of Bisquick and Betty Crocker, two brands I have loved my entire life. All opinions are my own. Thank you for continuing to support the brands that make My Baking Addiction possible. We’re finally adapting to life in our new home, which means that it no longer feels like a random vacation rental property. It also means that I’m not waking up at 3AM in a panic wondering where the heck I am. One of the things I’m so excited for, being in our new place, is the ability to start celebrating holidays in the same house I know Elle will spend her whole childhood in. I’m already imagining where decorations for each holiday will go, and I’m so excited to plan each holiday menu! Starting with Easter. I don’t know about you, but I think brunch is where it’s at for holidays like Easter. Easy to make breakfast casseroles and quiches, a little fresh fruit, and everyone’s fueled for the egg hunt. Even if you’ve just moved across a state, you got this! That’s where this Loaded Potato Quiche comes in. It’s absolutely packed with flavor. The filling is made from hash browns, savory ham, sharp Cheddar cheese, green onions, eggs, and perfectly crispy bacon. There’s not a single ingredient there I think you could possibly resist, amiright?! The crust couldn’t be easier. Made with Original Bisquickβ„’ mix, butter, and boiling water, it comes together in seconds. Seconds. And it’s perfectly buttery and delicious. A great base for a magnificent quiche. I’ll tell you a secret. Quiche sounds fancy. And difficult to make. But the truth is, it’s just a breakfast casserole baked round in a pie pan, with a buttery, crisp crust. It’s IMPOSSIBLY easy to make. And everyone you gather with for Easter will be beyond impressed at your brunching capabilities. No need to tell them you needed two bowls and a whisk to make it happen. Check out other Bisquick Easter recipe inspirations on the Betty Crocker website, and follow #getyourbettyon on Facebook and Twitter. Potato Quiche Yield: 8 servings Prep Time: 20 minutes Cook Time: 1 hour 5 minutes Ingredients: For the Crust 2 1/2 cups Original Bisquickβ„’ mix 6 tablespoons cold butter 1/4 cup boiling water For the Filling 1 1/2 cups chopped cooked ham 1 1/2 cups frozen diced hash brown potatoes, thawed 1 3/4 cups shredded sharp Cheddar cheese (6 oz) 3 medium green onions, thinly sliced (about 3 tablespoons) 5 large eggs 3/4 cup half-and-half 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper 6 slices bacon, crisply cooked, crumbled For the Garnish Sour cream, if desired Additional sliced green onions, if desired Directions: 1. Heat oven to 350Β°F. Spray 9 1/2-inch glass deep-dish pie plate with cooking spray. 2. Place Bisquick mix in medium bowl. Cut in butter, using pastry blender (or pulling 2 table knives through mix in opposite directions), until crumbly. Add boiling water; stir vigorously until soft dough forms. Using fingers dipped in Bisquick mix, press dough on bottom and up side of pie plate, forming edge on rim of plate. 3. Sprinkle ham, potatoes, cheese and 3 tablespoons onions in crust. In medium bowl, beat eggs, half-and-half and pepper until blended. Pour over ingredients in crust. 4. Bake 1 hour 5 minutes or until knife inserted in center comes out clean.

Strawberry Chocolate Smoothie posted by Jamie on August 3, 2015 This Strawberry Chocolate Smoothie sounds a little too decadent for any old school morning, but I promise you it’s not. Packed with fruit and protein, it’ll start the day just right. This post was sponsored by Silk through their partnership with POPSUGAR Select. While I was compensated to write a post about Silk Cashewmilk, all opinions are my own. Thank you for supporting the brands that continue to make My Baking Addiction possible. Smoothies aren’t always the first thing folks think of when they think about back-to-school breakfasts and lunches, but I’m here to tell you that this is a thing you should be doing. Over the summer, the heat had Eric and I switching up our usual day-starter of an egg on toast for cool and refreshing fruit smoothies. We tried lots of variations, and lots of different kinds of milk. By far, our favorite has become this Strawberry Chocolate Smoothie. I mean, I’m giving you permission to have what pretty much amounts to a chocolate dipped strawberry, for breakfast. And you know what? It’s packed with calcium. It’s super creamy. How’d we do that, you ask? SilkΒ Chocolate Cashewmilk. It’s the secret to our success. You can use fresh or frozen strawberries, and a fresh or frozen banana. Both add sweetness without adding any extra sugar. Adding in frozen fruit and decadently creamy SilkΒ Chocolate Cashewmilk means you’re going to end up with what amounts to a chocolate strawberry milkshake for breakfast, and I’ll tell you – nobody is going to complain about that. Especially if you put whipped cream (and even mini chocolate chips!) on top. Just in case you think smoothies are only for breakfast, I’d happily point you to my friend Shaina’s instagram feed. Shaina actually inspired our smoothie-filled summer. You see, during the school year, Shaina snaps Insta-photos of what she sends with her kiddos to school, for lunch. I pay attention. Sure, Elle’s school days may be a long way off, but the lunches Shaina packs for her kids are truly aspirational, and something I want to keep in mind even four years from now. Over and over again, I’ve watched this mama send a delicious, frosty smoothie in her kids’ lunches. Packed with good stuff, but feeling like a treat. How’s that for a mama win? All you need is a really good vacuum flask – a container that will keep food or drinks hot or cold over an extended amount of time. Blend up smoothies for the whole clan first thing in the morning, and by lunchtime, they should still be frosty, so long as your flask is worth its salt. Or smoothie, as the case may be. I don’t know about you, but when I was a kid, I never had something as awesome as a Strawberry Chocolate Smoothie packed in my lunch. That’s just the sort of good-for-you treat I want to be tucking into Elle’s lunch box when the time comes. Get a head start on me – I’m sure your kiddos will be thrilled! Strawberry Chocolate Smoothie Yield: 2 smoothies Prep Time: 5 minutes Total Time: 5 minutes Ingredients: 1 cup frozen strawberries 1 frozen banana 1 cup SilkΒ Chocolate Cashewmilk 1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder whipped cream, optional mini chocolate chips, optional Directions: Place frozen fruit into a blender and allow it to sit at room temperature for about 5 minutes. This will allow the fruit to thaw slightly and make for easy blending. Add in the SilkΒ Chocolate Cashewmilk and cocoa powder. Blend until smooth and creamy. If desired, top with whipped cream, fresh strawberries and mini chocolate chips. Notes: If you are using fresh fruit, I recommend adding in a few ice cubes to thicken the smoothie up a bit.

From the kitchen of One Perfect Bite... I had planned to share a grand dessert with you tonight, but time caught up with me and it never quite made it to the oven. Tomorrow will be a better day, I promise. What I do have to share tonight is an easy Nigella Lawson recipe that is perfect for guests as well as family. The recipe is self-explanatory and the salmon comes together quickly. While I made a few minor changes to her recipe, I wanted to share the original version with you, and simply tell you about the changes I made. As you probably can tell from the photo, I used Atlantic salmon for my version of the dish. I had the fish monger cut a single thick fillet to makes its preparation even easier than in the original recipe. I also left the skin on and removed it just before serving. Over the years, I've learned that the flake test is really the most reliable way to determine if a fish is done, especially if you are working with thick fillets. The sugar in the marinade makes the fillets prone to scorching, so you'll want to carefully watch them as they cook. I make it a point to have everything else I plan to serve with dinner ready to go before I begin to cook the fish, It comes together so quickly that there won't be time for anything else once its done. This is a really nice recipe and I think you'll use it often. Come back tomorrow when I'll be featuring the world's greatest blueberry buckle. Mirin Glazed Salmon ...from the kitchen of One Perfect Bite courtesy of Nigella Lawson Ingredients: 1/4 cup mirin (Japanese sweet rice wine) 1/4 cup light brown sugar 1/4 cup soy sauce 4 6-ounce salmon fillets, skin removed 1/2 cup water 1 tablespoon rice vinegar 2 scallions, halved and sliced into fine strips Directions: 1) Mix mirin, brown sugar, and soy sauce in a shallow dish that will hold all 4 salmon fillets. Stir to dissolve sugar. Place salmon in dish and marinate for 5 –10 minutes, turning once. 2) Meanwhile, set a very large non-stick skillet (or two smaller ones) on a stove burner and heat over medium-high heat. Place salmon fillets, skin side up in hot pan and cook for a few minutes until nicely seared and coated with a rich brown glaze. WATCH CAREFULLY. They can burn quickly. Turn fillets over, reduce heat to medium, and add reserved marinade and water to the pan (if using two pans, add marinade and water to both). Cook 3-5 minutes more, until fish reaches desired doneness. If the sauce looks like it’s reducing or thickening too quickly, just add a bit of water a few tablespoons at a time. Do not let it burn. 3) Transfer salmon fillets to serving platter or plates. If sauce is nicely reduced and thickened, turn off heat. If not, continue to cook over medium heat until desired consistency is reached. Add the rice wine vinegar to the sauce and stir. Pour the sauce over salmon fillets, top with scallions and serve.

#fullpost{display:inline;} When I was a senior in high school, I worked in a clothing store. (If you’re curious, it was a Laura Ashley shop. Yes, I realize this dates me.) For a part-time job it was hard to beat as my co-workers were fun and I got a clothing discount. I have to admit, however, that while creating window displays, ringing cash registers, and hanging up clothes was all well and good, the best part of the day was my lunch break. During this time, I would head to a café in the mall, grab a table, and enjoy a ham and cheese croissant. The café wasn’t fancy, but since it was away from the main food court it was a quiet spot, which was heaven to me after working with people all morning. There were also large black and white pictures of Paris hanging on the walls, which made it feel very sophisticated. As I ate my ham and cheese croissant, I would look at those pictures and dream about life after high school. Even though I still have a soft spot for ham and cheese croissants, for some reason I seldom eat them anymore. I’m not sure why. Then, the other day when researching ways to use up leftover ham, I came across Nigella Lawson’s ham and cheese croissant casserole, something she calls “French Lasagne.” It appeared to be a casserole dish made up of croissants, ham and cheese, with a savory egg custard holding everything together. Making it became my top priority. The casserole is very simple. You take day-old croissants and slice them into smaller pieces so they will fit into your preferred baking vessel. (I used a cast-iron skillet, but any two-quart baking dish will do.) You add layers of smoky ham and sharp cheese such as white cheddar and Swiss, then pour over everything an egg and milk mixture seasoned with fresh chives. When adapting recipes, my natural inclination is to throw in a lot of spices along with some chile peppers. While embellishments such as asparagus, spinach, and jalapeños would not be out of place here, I was seeking to make a ham and cheese croissant casserole that harkened back to the classic pastry I enjoyed as a teenager. With that in mind, I only added to the original egg base some mustard powder, cayenne, and herbs for a bit of piquancy and spice. I also swapped in Swiss cheese for the mozzarella called for in the original recipe instead. The end result was hearty and comforting, buttery and soft, with just enough sharp and smoky notes to keep things interesting. If you love quiche or stuffed croissants, then this is a casserole for you. While it’s not overly complicated in its pleasures, this is a large part of its charm. It’s perfect for breakfast, but with a side salad it’s works well as a lunch or supper, too. And while it’s best served warm, I’ve snacked on cold leftovers that were also satisfying. The casserole is a cinch to put together, but if you’re short on time you can prepare it the night before and then bake it in the morning, which will give your busy day a gracious beginning with little effort at all. Ham and cheese croissant casserole Ingredients: 4 or 5 croissants (12 ounces) 8 ounces chopped ham 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded Swiss cheese 1 cup (4 ounces) white cheddar cheese 3 cups whole milk 4 large eggs 1 teaspoon finely chopped fresh chives 1/2 teaspoon mustard powder 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt 1/4 teaspoon black pepper Pinch cayenne Instructions: Cut each croissant in half lengthwise (as if you were opening it to make a sandwich) and then cut each cut half into 4 more pieces. Lightly grease a 10-inch ovenproof skillet or any other 2-quart baking dish. Lay along the bottom of the dish half of the croissants. Top the croissant layer with the ham, half of the shredded cheeses, and the chives. Top the ham and cheese layer with the remaining croissants, tearing them into additional pieces, if necessary, so they fit snugly. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Whisk together the milk, eggs, garlic, salt, pepper, mustard powder, and cayenne until well combined. Pour the eggs evenly over the casserole and then lightly press the top croissant layer into the egg mixture. Allow to rest for 20 minutes or until the bread has absorbed the egg mixture. (If you prefer, you can do this overnight. Just keep the casserole covered and refrigerated.) After it's rested, top the casserole with the rest of the cheese and bake uncovered for 40-45 minutes or until puffed and golden. (The casserole will deflate a bit as it cools). Serve warm.
