Christmas Ham and Cheese Bread

  • 1 sourdough loaf
  • 200g leftover sliced glazed ham
  • 20 picked sage leaves
  • 200ml creme fraiche
  • 4 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 2 tbs chives, chopped
  • 100g Gruyère cheese, grated, plus extra to scatter

  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C. For the cheese mix, place the creme fraiche, mustard, chives and Gruyère in a bowl. Season to taste and mix to combine. Set aside.
  2. Using a serrated knife cut incisions in the bread, every 5cm without cutting through to the bottom. Spread the cheese mixture in between the cuts and insert sage leaves and ham. Wrap in foil and bake on a tray for 15-20 minutes until the cheese has melted and the bread is crisp and mixture has melted. Scatter with extra Gruyère to serve.
