What goes with that? The host or hostess of a luncheon or brunch may want to serve something different with the meal that is delicious and different. It is nice to have biscuits or rolls with the meal, but how about fixing a cheesy bread delight. Of course it is good to check with your eating guests if there is a sensitive to cheese. If so, an alternative cheese filling to this wonderful side dish would provide the sensitive guest to enjoy it.

This recipe will not take very long to make depending on how many pieces of cheesy bread you would like to make per guest. The size of the pan depends on the amount is yielded, and it is up to the server how much is to be served to each guest.

This side dish can be served with any kind of meat and vegetables. It is also nutritious enough for children to take with them in their lunch boxes, or on the go and out the door.

Here are the Ingredients:

This recipe yields to two medium servings.

2 slices of your favorite bread, broken into bite size pieces, crust removed.
3 large eggs, beaten
3 oz. of milk or plain soy milk
1/4 cup of your favorite shredded cheese (more if you are a cheese lover)
* may substitute Soy cheese for alternate
1/4 cup of chopped onion (optional)
1/4 cup of chopped green pepper (optional)
garlic powder to taste
salt and pepper to taste

How To Prepare Ingredients For Skillet

In a large mixing bowl, beat the three eggs with the three ounces of milk. Add the seasonings to this "wet" mixture. Then add the 2 slices of bread without the crust broken into pieces to the bowl, stir until all is wet and then add the chopped onion and the chopped green pepper. ( You can get more creative and add chopped mushrooms or little bits of ham if you like). Just remember, if the dry amounts of ingredients increase, and one additional egg well beaten to cover the amount.

Time To Fry

Heat up the skillet with 3 tablespoons of olive oil. On medium heat, add the mixture of ingredients together and watch to see when the edges bubble a little. The egg will appear white and everything will start sticking together. The wetter the bread the better it will stick. When the edges appear dry, it is time to flip over with a long spatula. You can press the spatula down on it to flatten it , making it easier to turn. The cooked side should be a nice golden brown. It won't be long till the other side is finished. Like a pancake, it can be slid onto the plate.

How To Serve

You can share this with dinner guests by cutting in half or in fourths. A hungry individual can eat the entire piece with a dab of sour cream or your favorite ranch, blue cheese dressing: kids may even like this with ketchup. It is also delicious by itself.

Alternatives to this Recipe

This can also be a breakfast treat! Instead of cheese, you can add raisins, blueberries, or raspberries to the egg and bread mixture and instead of garlic, salt and pepper, add cinnamon and vanilla flavoring to taste. This can be eaten like french toast. Serve with your favorite syrup, sprinkle with powder sugar or serve with cream cheese.

May you enjoy this wonderful side dish or breakfast/ snack treat any time of the day or with your next family and friends brunch or luncheon.

      Thanks everyone for your comments, which I take as complements. I never ever dreamed I would ever be putting my own personal recipes on the HP. I have always been considered a "nontalent"(by my own family) in the kitchen, but all this good response has given me a lot of confidence to create more. In this day and age, it is better to be more creative in the kitchen and it is a lot more economical too. Thank you.
