Wow, it’s been a long time since I posted a recipe. Something about having a baby. I’m just happy to get dinner on the table for my family without stopping to take pictures and finding the time to blog it. Anyway, he’s (my baby!) eighteen months now, and I’m starting to breathe again. So let’s make dinner.

These are an upscale version of grilled cheese sandwiches. They pair perfectly with an herbed tomato soup. Delicious comfort food. They are simple to make so let’s get started. Here’s what you’ll need:

12 slices bread
grated cheese (cheddar, monterey jack, a mix, your choice!)
parmesan cheese

3 eggs
1 3/4 cup milk
3 T. minced onion
1 1/2 tsp. prepared mustard
3/4 tsp. salt
pepper (optional, I use 1/4 tsp.)
2 tsp. minced parsley

Arrange six slices of bread in a 9 x 13 glass baking dish. Here I’ve used my homemade whole wheat bread.

Grate enough cheese to cover the bread. I used cheddar and monterey jack. I want to try pepper jack sometime.

Sprinkle the grated cheese over the six slices of bread. This is also the place to sprinkle on some parmesan. I skipped it because I was out of parmesan cheese.

Top with six more slices of bread.

Put the remaining ingredients in the blender.

3 eggs
1 3/4 cup milk
3 T. minced onion
(Lots of times I don’t mince the onion first. Okay, I never mince the onion first. I cut off a small chunk of onion and throw it in the blender.)
1 1/2 tsp. prepared mustard
3/4 tsp. salt
pepper (optional, I use 1/4 tsp.)
2 tsp. minced parsley

Blend it all together and

carefully pour the mixture over the sandwiches in the glass dish. Go slowly and make sure every part of the top layer of bread is moistened or it will cook up hard and dry. Bake uncovered in a 350° oven for 45 minutes or until golden and puffy. (While it bakes, make your herbed tomato soup!)

Yum! Serve and enjoy!
