Written on a very yellowed and tattered piece of paper. Have no idea where it came from and have not tried it yet. Posting to save and for you. It does not call for a type of bread and I'm sure that that would make or break this dish. Think I will try with a nice sourdough, but will let sit for an hour or so in the refrigerator to soak before baking.
