Top Review by Koechin Chef

My mother also made it this way. Always made it in a round oven proof bowl. Buttered it well and sprinkled all over with bread crumbs She did not layer it but combined it all. Beating the egg into the milk. Since Cheddar was not a big thing in Germany when I grew up, she used Parmesan Cheese. Sprinkled the top with bread crumbs and drizzled with melted butter. When ripe tomatoes were in season she also added cut up tomatoes and sometimrs left-over ham.We always fought over the crunchy outsides and top. Now I'm sitting here drooling on my keyboard. :-0
