French Food Friday....Bouchée de jambon cuit au chèvre

recipe and photo from here

Bonjour mes belles,

Here is the first recipe for August. I found this one on one of my favourite French websites under the category amuse-bouche which literally translate to amuse mouth.

In English we refer to such food as canapés and normally serve with drinks. Canapé in French refers to a couch hence offering a guest a canapé with a drink may get an interesting look in return.

The recipe appears in French and then below in English for those of you who want to try in French first......


  • 4  tranches de jambon cuit
  • 1 boîte de fromage frais de chèvre
  • 2 gousses d'ail
  • 300g de roquette
  • 4 cuillerées à soupe de vinaigrette
  • 1 petit poivron rouge
  • 1 petit poivron jaune
  • sel, poivre
  • ciboulette


Laver et essorer la salade. La mettre dans un saladier et l'assaisonner de vinaigrette.
Couper les poivrons en fines lamelles.
Peler les gousses d'ail, retirer le germe, hacher finement la chair ou l'écraser au presse ail.
Couper 8 brins de ciboulette.
Dans une jatte, mettre le fromage de chèvre, ajouter l'ail, la ciboulette ciselée, le sel et le poivre. Bien mélanger le tout.
Sur le plan de travail, déposer les tranches de jambon. Les couper en trois ou quatre dans la longueur suivant la taille des tranches. Etaler la préparation. Rouler chaque morceau sur lui-même, le maintenir délicatement avec un brin de ciboulette.
Dans les assiettes de service, déposer la salade, les bouchées de jambon, décorer de tranches fines de poivrons. Servir bien frais.
4 slices of cooked ham
1 box of fresh goat cheese
2 cloves of garlic
300g rocket
4 tablespoons of  vinaigrette
1 small red pepper
1 small yellow pepper
salt and pepper
Wash and dry the salad. Put in a bowl and season with vinaigrette.
Cut peppers into thin strips.
Peel the garlic cloves and crush using a garlic press.
Cut chives.
In a bowl, put the goat cheese, add the garlic, chives, salt and pepper. Mix well.
 Place the slices of ham on a chopping board, cut into three or four pieces depending on the size of the slices. Spread the cheese mix on the pieces of ham. Carefully roll and tie with the chives.
In the serving plates, place the salad, rolled up ham and  decorate with thin slices of peppers.
Serve chilled.
.....bon appetite  à tous, Leeann x
