Recipe by Mamablowfish
Couldn't be easier. This is baked in a shallow casserole dish or 4 small 1 1/2 cup sized shallow individual pans. It gets nice and puffy almost like a souffle which makes a beautiful presentation. I found this recipe in an old Sunset cook book. This is Florentine sytle cooking. Makes a great dinner or breakfast. You can sub jack cheese for the fontina also.
