Vegetable clafoutis


Vegetable clafoutis
Clafoutis, the traditional French batter puddings, are normally sweet, but here is a savoury version: a layer of mixed vegetables (pre-cooked in this case) in a gratin dish with a cheesy mixture poured over, then baked in the oven.

Here I have used diced carrots and courgettes, chopped onion, fried diced ham and a mix of cream, eggs and Comté.
