Gruyere and Cheddar Frico with Arugula Salad

Total Time:
15 min
5 min
10 min

2 dozen frico

  • 5 ounces sharp Cheddar, finely grated
  • 5 ounces Gruyere cheese, finely grated
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons fresh thyme leaves
  • Arugula Salad, recipe below
  • In a medium bowl, toss together both cheeses and the flour. Heat a large nonstick skillet over a low to medium flame and sprinkle 1 1/2 tablespoons of the cheese mixture onto the pan to form a 4-inch circle. Sprinkle some thyme over the cheese and cook until the cheese is somewhat melted but not firm. Using a spatula, turn the cheese over and cook until firm and golden.

  • Transfer the frico to a paper towel, then quickly drape over a large rolling pin until completely cooled, to form a shell shape.

  • To serve, remove from pin and top each frico with arugula salad.

Arugula Salad:
  • 4 teaspoons fresh lemon juice

  • 1 small shallot, finely chopped

  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard

  • 1 teaspoon honey

  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil

  • Salt

  • Freshly ground black pepper

  • 2 cups arugula

  • In a small bowl, whisk together lemon juice, shallots, mustard, and honey. Whisk in the olive oil and add salt and pepper, to taste. Lightly dress arugula leaves with the vinaigrette.
