Ham and Bear Snack

Hamembert (Ham and Bear) Snack

A ham steak (nice thick cut, good quality, approx. one pound)
A small wheel of Camembert cheese
1/2 cup heavy cream
1 egg yolk
1 tablespoon honey
1 teaspoon cayenne
1/4 cup bourbon

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Place ham steak into shallow baking pan. Whisk honey, cayenne, bourbon for the glaze. Pour half over ham steak and place in oven until sizzling and singed on edges.

Flip ham steak, coat with other half of glaze and broil at 500 degrees F until sizzling and singed on edges.

While cooking second side of ham steak, heat heavy cream until near boiling. Lower temperature to simmer, add Camembert and yolk, whisk briskly for 90 seconds. Remove from heat until ham is finished.

Drizzle Camembert sauce over the ham and serve.

Add other cool stuff to your liking, Kojack. Maybe green onion slices or mango wedges. Let me know if you are stuck.
