Dinner Tonight: Baked Cheese Puff

Kathy Douglas of Swanton has a booklet, Secrets of Hungarian Cookery, published by the Mothers’ Club of St. Stephen’s Church in East Toledo, that dates back to the late 1950s or early 1960s. Though the booklet itself is disintegrating, she cherishes the recipes, especially this one for Baked Cheese Puff, orginally submitted to the booklet by Mrs. Andrew Packo. “It’s easy, delicious, and I’m eager to try it on my preschool grandsons during our next visit. I’m sure it will be a hit,” writes Ms.  Douglas.

Baked Cheese Puff

8 slices bread, buttered

4 slices American cheese

4-5 eggs

2 cups milk

½ teaspoon salt

Preheat oven to 325°.

Use the bread and cheese to make 4 ordinary sandwiches. Place them in a shallow baking dish to fit tight. In a medium bowl, beat the eggs lightly and add milk and salt. Pour the milk mixture over the sandwiches, making sure it covers their tops. Bake about 45 minutes.
