Warm Savory Mini-Cheesecakes with Dressed Baby Greens

Another brilliant recipe from Jacques Pepin ~ he 
explains he tasted something very similar to
this in a restaurant while vacationing in the Alsace 
region of France. Though there it was served
in a pastry crust. 

He used the same idea, but
baked the cheesecake mixture in small ramekins,
the insides buttered and sprinkled with fresh
bread crumbs to facilitate easy removal from
the molds.

I adore the contrast in flavors and textures here;
the warm, creamy little cheesecakes liven up
the simply dressed, crispy greens.

Rich, yet light and tender it was love at 
first bite ~ the delicate cheesecake
practically melts in your mouth. 

Whipped cream cheese, a little sour cream, 
eggs and a few crumbles of blue cheese are the key

Merci beaucoup to Chef Pepin for another winner!

I'll definitely be making this recipe again. 
And if you try it, I hope you love it as well. :)

Have a wonderful week everyone!
