Recipe by Coasty

The dish which in Switzerland was known as "Cheese soup" was really a thick mixture of bread and cheese, in which a spoon would stand upright. Served with onions fried in butter, it probably contained more calories than a complete dinner of several courses. The following recipe is modified slightly to suit modern tastes.
