Mini Savory Cheesecakes on Arugula or Butterhead Lettuce
From 'Chef's Table'
For the Mini Cheesecakes:
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Generously coat four small (3/4 cup capacity) soufflÃ© molds with the butter.
Divide the breadcrumbs among the molds, and coat the bottoms and sides heavily with the crumbs, pressing them into the buttered dish so they stick.
Put the cream cheese in a medium bowl, and add the eggs, sour cream, salt, pepper, and 1 tablespoon of the parsley. Mix well with a whisk, and divide among the four small soufflÃ© molds.
Sprinkle the crumbled blue cheese on top of the cream cheese mixture in the molds. Top with the remaining tablespoon of parsley.
Arrange the molds on a cookie sheet, and bake for about 20 minutes. The cheesecakes will still be slightly wet and soft in the center. Let cool for 10 minutes before unmolding.
For the Salad:
Meanwhile, combine the lettuce leaves with the oil, vinegar, and salt and pepper.
Arrange on four plates.
Invert each cooled mini cheesecake into one of your ands to unmold it, then turn it over so it is right side up and place it in the center of one of the lettuce. Serve immediately.
