Gruyère And Lobster Cheesecakes
These individual-portion lobster cheesecakes are a perfect starter to a fancy dinner party. Garnish with radicchio leaves and whole and sniped chives for an elegant presentation. Recipe yields four portions. Serve a Sauvignon Blanc or other light white wine with this dish. We personally love it with Alsatian Gewürtztraminer or Riesling.
- 1 cup Gruyère cheese, shredded
- 1 cup cream cheese, at room temperature
- 1 teaspoon lemon zest
- 1 teaspoon lemon juice
- 2 eggs
- 1/2 cup heavy cream
- Salt and pepper to taste
- 1/2 cup lobster meat
- 6 ounces Gruyère cheese, cut in 4 thick slices
- Preheat oven to 300°F.
- In food processor, pulse shredded Gruyère and cream cheese until mixture is smooth. Add lemon zest, lemon juice, eggs, cream, salt and pepper. Pulse to incorporate.
- Scrape mixture into medium bowl. Fold in lobster meat.
- Spray four 4-ounce baking dishes, such as ramekins, with cooking spray. Place in a deep baking pan. Divide cheesecake mixture evenly among dishes. Add warm water to pan to depth of 1 inch up sides of individual dishes. Cover pan.
- Bake cheesecakes 50 to 60 minutes or until set. Remove pan from oven and cool 10 minutes.
