How to cook
Preheat oven to 350°F
Slice the ham into strips. Try to separate the strips. It is sometimes easier to separate the slices before cutting them into strips, so as to avoid having them stick together.
Remove the rind from the gruyere and grate it on a box grater.
Crack the eggs into a large mixing bowl.
Add the heavy cream and beat the mixture with a whisk until smooth.
Add a small pinch of salt and a few twists of fresh black pepper. Not too much, the gruyere and ham are already quite salty.
Stir in the grated cheese.
Add the ham.
Line a pie dish with puff pastry. Seal the pastry agains the dish and stretch it gently up the edges of the dish. Trim away the pastry that hangs over the rim.
Pour the filling out into the crust.
Crimp down the edges of the pastry with a fork for a crispier edge.
Bake for about 45 minutes or until set. The center of the filling should appear solid when the pie dish is bumped gently.
