Barber's Brunch Ramekins
  • Time 0.5 hours minutes
  • Serves 4
  • Moderate
    • 100g of Barber’s Cheddar
    • 7 Asparagus spears, Blanched or 1 handful of Spinach or 150g Bacon lardons cooked
    • 2 tsp Dijon Mustard
    • 500ml Milk
    • 50g butter
    • 4 tbsp plain flour
    • 4 eggs
    1. Pour 500ml milk into a large saucepan and add 4 tbsp plain flour and 50g butter. Turn on the heat to medium and start to whisk the mixture. Keep whisking fast as the butter melts and the mixture comes to the boil – the flour will disappear and the sauce will begin to thicken
    2. Whisk for another 2 mins while the sauce bubbles then stir in 100g grated strong cheddar cheese (or 50g grated cheddar, 50g crumbled blue cheese) until melted. Stir in the mustard
    3. Blanche the asparagus, wilt the spinach or cook the bacon
    4. Spoon the cheese sauce into the four ramekin dishes so they are half full
    5. Add your filling of choice for example the bacon
    6. Crack a whole egg in the top of the ramekin, sprinkle with grated cheese
    7. Place in a hot oven for 20mins
