This is the Ham, Apricots and Camembert on Toast recipe.
- Prep: 15 min
- Cooking: 5 min - 10 min
- 1/4 cup (60 mL) water
- 3 tbsp (45 mL) orange juice
- 12 dried apricots
- 1/2 tsp (2 mL) ground nutmeg
- 4 slices crusty whole-grain or whole-wheat bread toasted
- 8 thin slices of cooked ham
- 5 oz (150 g) Canadian Camembert sliced
- Freshly ground pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 475 °F (250 °C).
In a saucepan, bring water and orange juice to a boil. Add apricots and nutmeg. Simmer, letting apricots rehydrate for about 5 minutes. Once apricots have swollen up, continue simmering to reduce extra liquid.
Cover a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Arrange toast on cookie sheet. Place a slice of ham on each slice of toast, top with apricots and cover with cheese. Sprinkle with pepper, if desired.
Bake for 5 minutes or until cheese is melted and golden. Serve with fresh fruit or a green salad.
You can assemble this dish ahead and bake it at the last minute.
For a change of taste, try with Canadian Brie, Havarti, Gouda, etc.
