Croute au Fromage

3                      cloves of garlic
1/3 cup            white balsamic vinegar
3 tbsp              water
2 tbsp              honey
1                      clove
Pepper, salt 
To assemble
8 slices           bread
1/3 cup           white wine

12 slices         Swiss raclette cheese
4                      eggs

  1. Preheat oven to 430°F.
  2. Mix the small onions and all ingredients, including salt and pepper, in a saucepan. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer, covered, for approx. 5 minutes.
  3. Place bread on greased sheet pan, drizzle with wine, top with the ham first and then the cheese slices.
  4. Cook the croûtes au fromage for approx. 10 minutes in the upper half of the preheated oven.
  5. Prepare 4 fried eggs in a pan.
  6. Once the cheese is melted, remove the croûtes au fromage from the oven, place a fried egg on each serving of 2, sprinkle them with the onion-mixture, and add paprika and pepper. 

Enjoy this delicious recipe with a glass of white wine, and... Bon appétit!
