Delice Dauphine

This recipe is once again accredited to Mrs. Moore. Who was Mrs. Moore anyway? I am currently unable to find a good translation for this name. Dad pulled out his Larousse Gastronomique. Dauphine is a region of France that stretches along the Alps to the Rhone Valley. The area is known for it's gratin type dishes for which this recipe seems to fit. Delice in French refers to a certain type of pastry, but has no precise culinary meaning, implies that the dish is delectable or delicious.

1 un-sugared pancake
1 thin slice ham
2 tablespoons cream
2 tablespoons grated Gruyere cheese

  • Spread 1 tablespoon cream over pancake.
  • Place slice of ham on top of pancake.
  • Sprinkle with 1 tablespoon cheese.
  • Roll and place in shallow baking dish.
  • Add the other tablespoon cream and the rest of cheese.
  • Brown under broiler, up to 7 or 8 minutes.
And here begins those yummy recipes that show where my love of cheese came from.
