Ham and cheese pie with a dark rye bread crust

Ham and cheese pie with a lovely dark Danish  rye bread crust.

The mind works in mysterious ways, The inspiration for this pie was a cheesecake with a dark chocolate crust and looked a little crumbly. My mind wander off to Danish rye bread and i was thinking why not make a savoury cheese cake. Don’t ask me why, I can’t even explain it to my self.

If you like the flavour of dark rye bread you should try this. I made a simple ham and cheese filling, but you can use any filling you think goes well with rye bread.

Pie crust:
250 g Danish rye bread
250 g crisp bread
100 g butter

Filling:
250 g cream cheese
5 eggs
150 g chopped ham
150 g grated cheese
Ramsonk pure or another herb
Salt and pepper as desired

Pre heat the oven to 200 C

Finely chop rye bread and crisp bread, melt the butter and mix everything in a bowl.

Press the mixture in a baking paper lined 9 inch pan or a pie dish.

Bake in the middle of the oven for about 10 minutes.

While the crust is baking in the oven,  make the filling

Beat the eggs and cream cheese smooth.

Add the chopped ham and grated cheese and salt and pepper to your liking. And mix in desired herbs. I used ramson..

Pour the filling  into the finished crust and baking it in the middle of the oven at 150 C for 20 minutes.

Serve the pie warm with a salad and enjoy.
