Puffed Eggs Monterey

(6 servings)

  • 6 eggs
  • 4 slices white bread - cut in half diagonally
  • 3/4 cup grated Monterey Jack Cheese
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 Tablespoons butter
  • 2 Tablespoons diced green chilies
  • 1 teaspoon Lawrys or similar seasoned salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Butter the bread slices on one side. Arrange the slices - buttered side out - around the edges of a 9-inch pie tin so points of the bread stand up.

Place remaining bread - butted side down - along the bottom of the pan.

In a medium mixing bowl, beat the eggs with milk, salt, pepper and chilies. Stir in grated cheese.

Pour egg mixture over bread in the pie tin.

Bake for 30 minutes until egg is fully set and visable bread is toasted.

Cut into wedges to serve.
