12 slices of milk bread
1. Remove crusts from sliced bread. Flatten slices with a rolling pin. Brush both sides with melted butter and press a slice into each of 6 oz (170 mL) ovenproof ramekins or custard cups.
2. Set them on a cookie sheet and bake at 350°F (180°C) for 12 minutes. Divide ham, 6 oz (170 g) cheese and green onion evenly among the ramekins.
3. Make a well in centre of each “nest” and delicately break an egg into it. Salt and pepper, and top with 2 oz (60 g) cheese, divided evenly among nests.
4. Bake for 18 minutes or until eggs are done to taste.
For a change of taste, use Canadian Cheddar, Oka or Monterey Jack.
Swiss cheese refers cheese group related Emmental and Gruyère. Round holes of varying sizes form in the cheese naturally during aging. With its delicate and slightly sweet almond and hazelnut flavour, it’s delicious as a snack, at breakfast the end of a meal, and perfect in sauces, fondues and au gratin dishes.
