this is to die for! we actually sat there with spoons eating it right out of the pan! i had some leftover herb bread that i baked and sourdough that i purchased, so i used one layer of each. i am sure you could add spinach and mushrooms to the onion mix, going to try that next time. i bake alot of breads and this is the perfect way to use the leftovers, a keeper!

I have to honestly say that my family went wild over this! My 13 year old said it was grilled-cheese pie! I had a few of Yogi's Tasty Buns and cut them up (with the crusts) to use here, and the bread with the cheese, with the garlic, totally yummy! I'm on a diet and couldn't resist! Annelies, thanks so much for this recipe, it's going to be a staple in this house.
