  • * 1 tablespoon butter
  • * 2 cups (8 ounces) shredded Gruyere or Emmentaler cheese
  • * 1 tablespoon Oil
  • * 6 flour tortillas (6 inch)
  • * 1/4 teaspoon ground white pepper
  • * 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • * 1 tablespoon heavy (whipping) cream
  • * 1 egg yolk
  • * 2 large onions, halved vertically, thinly sliced (about 2 cups)
  • * 1-1/4 Cups shredded leftover Cook's® Bone-in Ham


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Melt butter in medium skillet over medium heat. Add onions; cook 8 minutes, or until tender, stirring frequently. Remove from heat. Cool. Beat egg yolk, cream, salt and pepper in small bowl with wire whisk until well blended. Add to onions; mix well.
  2. Brush both sides of tortillas with oil; place, in single layer, on baking sheet. Cover evenly with onion mixture, ham and cheese. Bake 6 minutes, or until topping is hot and bubbly. Serve warm.


Great Substitute: No leftover ham on hand? Use a Cook′s® Bone-in Ham Steak, prepared according to package directions, instead. Cut into thin, match-stick strips, about 2 inches long, then use as directed. Refrigerate remaining ham for another use.
