Tuesday’s Cupful: Background on Ham –N- Cheese Puto

Such a ham revisit

Ham has the flavor, and then some, needed to serve as the meaty ingredient in stuffing this ol’ Filipino staple.  Remember that puto literally means “rice cake.”  These rice cakes possess a semisweet taste that’s off-set by the smokey ham and melted cheese.  Meanwhile, the Mixed Stew crew added cilantro for a twist.  The herb provides a minty flavor component, which cuts through the sharpness of the cheese and ham.
