Tomato Clafoutis


  • Preheat oven to 190°C fan forced (210°C normal).
  • Carefully put the tomatoes into a pot of boiling water and leave for about 10-12 secs. Then remove and place in a large bowl of iced water for a few minutes.
  • Then peel the tomatoes and slice in 3 or 4 lengthways. Place them on paper towels, in one layer, generously salt and cover with more towels. Press the top down and set aside for about 20 mins to remove excess liquid.
  • When ready, layer the tomatoes in a large gratin dish, overlapping a little.
  • Whisk the eggs with the extra yolks, the cream and just under 100 gm grated cheese. Then evenly spoon the mixture over the tomatoes, sprinkle with the remaining cheese and the thyme. Cook in the oven for about 15-20 mins until puffed and golden.
  • Serve with a green salad on the side.
