Number of Servings: 1


    1/2 teaspoon plus 3 tablespoons butter
    1 cup finely chopped onions
    1/2 cup chopped celery
    Salt and pepper to taste
    1 cup chopped pecan pieces
    2 cups diced cooking apples, such as Granny Smith, peeled
    4 large eggs, separated
    3 cups heavy cream
    1 1/2 cups yellow cornmeal
    1/2 cup freshly grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese
    1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh parsley leaves


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 2-quart rectangle glass dish with 1 teaspoon of the butter. In a large sauté pan,
over medium heat, melt the remaining 3 tablespoons of the butter. Add the onions and celery. Season with salt and pepper.
Sauté until the vegetables are softened, about 4 minutes. Add the pecans and continue to sauté for 1 minute. Add the apples.
Season with salt and pepper. Continue to sauté for 2 minutes.
Remove from the heat and cool completely.
In a large mixing bowl, whisk the egg yolks and cream together.
Add the cornmeal and whisk until smooth. Stir the apple mixture and cheese into the cornmeal mixture. Mix until incorporated. In another large mixing bowl, whip the egg whites with an electric
mixer until very stiff and peaks form, then fold into the apple batter. Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake until it sets, about 45 minutes. Remove from the oven and let stand for 5 minutes. Spoon onto serving plates and garnish with parsley.

  • This one sounds different but good. Has anyone tried it? What did you serve it with? The nutritional info is definitely a bit over my daily intake, but what the heck, you gotta splurge every now & then. Sounds like something I'd like to try. I'm saving this one. - 2/2/10
