As the title states, it’s a savoury loaf filled with ham, olives and also gruyere cheese. It has a dense and moist texture because it’s packed with all this plus four eggs. Mmmmm it is so good. Right when I tried I knew I had to get my hands on a recipe (and an oven). When I finally had both this was at the top of my long cooking & baking bucket list.
It is so incredibly easy to make, as you will see when you read down to the recipe. French food doesn’t always have to be confusingly complicated.
Do yourself a favour and bake this loaf.
