These are what the French call "cakes" - they are little savoury buns or muffins - and are always requested for breakfasts in the Auberge. They are delicious split and spread with herb and garlic cheese when warm - or serve them alongside hot soups, stews, chilli or casseroles! I have also made these with grated Gruyere cheese as well as Emmenthal....the trick is to use a mature and strong tasting cheese. I have suggested using smoked ham in this recipe - it just gives a wonderful extra flavour to these delicious buns/muffins. They freeze well and are easily reheated, if you have any left! We often have these for Christmas morning breakfast or brunch with the optional chives added, and then spread with smoked salmon butter - divine!
