Milk, 1 pint, Eggs, 2,

Stale bread, 6 slices, Grated cheese, 1 cup.

Cut the stale bread into thick slices and remove all the crust. Arrange them in buttered pans, or in one shallow baking-dish. For 6 slices, make a raw custard with 1 pint of milk, 2 eggs, and 1/4 teaspoon of salt. Baste the bread at intervals with this, until it has absorbed as much as possible, and then cover with a thick layer of cheese, and place it in a moderate oven until the custard sets, and the cheese is melted and slightly browned.
