Oven Cheese Fondue, an Old Recipe From Montreal

 A friend from Montreal gave me this recipe in 1981 and I've been making it ever since.  This is easy to throw together in the evening and then throw it in the oven the next morning.  It's great to make around the holidays when you have company and need something to feed everyone for breakfast. It's a wonderful smell to wake up to too.

The recipe:

10 slices white bread
6 large eggs
3 cups milk
2 T. snipped parsley
1 tsp. dry mustard
1 tsp. salt and 1/2 tsp. pepper
2 cups shredded American cheese  ( I use cheddar)
3 T. finely chopped onions (I use one medium onion)

 Set your oven to 325 degrees. Cut bread into cubes. Beat eggs, milk and seasoning.  Stir in bread cubes, cheese and onion.  Pour it into your pan and bake it for 1 hour until the center is set.  Can be prepared ahead and refrigerated overnight.

 I alter the recipe each time I make it according to what I have on hand.  You can use all kinds of cheese and add green onions or kale or spinach as I have above.

You can also add cooked bacon or sausage too.  It's just an easy, delicious, full proof breakfast.
