Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Butter the fluted bases and sides of the tins.
For the cheesecake base, put the
White Bread (2 1/2 cups)
onto a food processor or blender and whizz until it has turned into fine crumbs.
Unsalted Butter (3 Tbsp)
over a gentle heat in a saucepan, tip in the Breadcrumbs, season with
Salt (to taste)
Ground Black Pepper (to taste)
, and stir to combine. Press the mixture into the bottom and sides of the flan tins, pressing down with the back of a spoon to ensure an even layer.
Bake in the oven for 10 minutes or until the base is golden. Keep watch as it can overcook very easily.
For the filling, cream together
Full-Fat Cream Cheese (1 tsp)
Roquefort Blue Cheese (3/4 tsp)
, yolk of the
Corn Flour (1 tsp)
Heavy Cream (1 Tbsp)
and a dash of juice from
and divide the mix between the flan tins.
Return to the oven and bake for 10-12 minutes or until golden and just set. There should be a slight wobble when you shake the tins. Remove the cheesecakes from the oven and allow to cool slightly before removing from the tins.
Cherry Tomatoes (20)
vine so there are 3-5 tomatoes per person depending on size. Place them on a baking tray, drizzle over some
Olive Oil (as needed)
, and season with
Salt (to taste)
. Roast in the oven for 10 minutes or until the skins start to blister.
Meanwhile, make the basil oil. place the
Fresh Basil (1 1/2 cups)
in the blender along with
Extra-Virgin Olive Oil (2.5 fl oz)
. Pulse until the mixture is moving freely- if you over blend it, it can turn the leaves brown. Strain through a sieve and leave aside for plating.
To serve, place each cheesecake on a plate, top with the roasted tomatoes and drizzle around the basil oil. Serve immediately. Enjoy!
