If you are looking for some drama in your life, the good type of drama, you just cannot go wrong with making this Easy Basque Burnt Cheesecake! Whether it comes to the table in the parchment, ready to be unveiled in front of your family and/or guests, served on a platter, or doled onto plates in the kitchen, one glance is all it takes to know that this cheesecake is different from any other cheesecake you might have ever served.
Let’s take you back to 1969: Jack LaLanne was on every afternoon, followed by the very dashing Galloping Gourmet. We know him today as Graham Kerr, and I can still see him flitting about the kitchen. One day he made Basque Chicken and my baby sister, who must have been around six, begged Mom to make this dish. Poulet Basquaise became a family favorite – I hope it becomes one of yours, too.
