6 slices of thick-cut bread
1 1/2 cups grated LDF Cheddar cheese
1 1/2 cups LDF whole milk
6 large eggs
Pepper to taste
Oregano to taste
Butter, or if you prefer, use non-stick spray on six small ramekins. Butter one side of bread, and place a single slice with buttered side up in each ramekin. Generously pepper each slice of bread and sprinkle with 1/4 cup of cheese.
Beat milk with eggs and add oregano to taste. Pour over the cheese and bread in the ramekins. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
In the morning uncover and place in a cold oven. Set to 350° and bake for 30-40 minutes or until puffed and golden brown. Remove from baking dish and serve immediately.
Variations—Instead of individual ramekins, arrange bread in a buttered 9” x 13” baking dish. Add diced ham or sausage, onion, green pepper, or mushrooms to taste. Place these ingredients on top of bread, but under cheese, prior to covering with egg mixture.
