As I sit here waiting for my cheese pud to come out of the oven (shivering with hunger I might add!), I thought I’d take the time to do a quick share of the recipe. It’s a great little lunch or supper dish, as it takes very little time to prepare. Well, having said that, you do have to leave it to soak for half an hour, before you bung it in the ole oven for forty!
This recipe was taken from a wartime Woman and Home cookery book, and has been tried and tested many a time by me….
3 thin slices of bread,
1 egg (shell or reconstituted),
½ pint of milk, (or milk and water),
2oz grated cheese,
¼ teaspoonful of made mustard,
Pepper and Salt.
Arrange the bread and cheese in alternate layers in a greased pie dish.
Beat the egg, add the mustard, salt, pepper and milk.
Pour over the bread and leave to soak for half an hour.
Cook in a slow oven for forty minutes.
