#1279
what you'll need
16 slices Daily's® Hickory Smoked Boneless Ham
2 tablespoons finely chopped bottled roasted red sweet peppers
6 eggs
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon butter
1 recipe Asiago Cheese Sauce
3/4 cup mascarpone cheese (3 ounces)
2 teaspoons snipped fresh rosemary
1/4 cup water
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1 12-inch round or square focaccia (Italian flat bread), split horizontally
Snipped rosemary or parsley (opitonal)
how to prepare
Preheat broiler. Broil cut sides of focaccia until toasted. Remove from broiler.

In a small bowl, combine mascarpone cheese, roasted peppers and rosemary. Spread some of the mascarpone mixture on each half of the focaccia. Cut each half of the focaccia into 4 wedges or squares.

Meanwhile, with a whisk or fork, in a medium bowl, beat eggs, water, salt and pepper together until combined. In a 10-inch skillet, melt butter over medium heat. Pour egg mixture into skillet. Cook, without stirring, until mixture begins to set. Cook for 4 to 5 minutes more or until eggs are cooked through but still moist, lifting and folding often to assure eggs cook evenly. Remove from heat; keep warm.

To assemble focaccia, broil cheese-topped wedges or squares for 2 minutes. Top each with 2 slices of ham and some of the scrambled egg mixture. Spoon some of the Asiago Cheese Sauce over each wedge or square. If desired, garnish with additional snipped rosemary or parsley.

Asiago Cheese Sauce: In a small saucepan, melt 1 tablespoon butter over medium heat. Stir in 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour, 1/8 teaspoon salt and 1/8 teaspoon pepper. Stir in 1 cup half-and-half or light cream. Cook and stir over medium heat until thickened. Cook and stir for 1 minute more. Stir in 3/4 cup grated Asiago cheese until melted. Makes about 1 1/4 cups sauce.
