  1. Delicious! Swiss cheese bubbling over layers of sweet onion and bread custard. I don't use canned milk and didn't know if it was the same consistency as regular milk, so I substitued halfand half. My 1 1/2 quart casserole didn't look large enough to hold the ingredients, so I used a 10"x10" baking dish. I had to remove it from the oven after 35 mins. because the butter was bubbling up over the sides of the dish and there was smoke billowing from the oven. The cheese could have been a bit browner but the dish finished cooking while I let it sit for 10 minutes. I loved the flavor (I used an Emmanthal Swiss) and texture combinations. The bread crusts added a bit of chewiness to bread and egg custard. Thanks Barbara, I think next time I will serve it as a main dish!
  2. A casserole made up of the best part of French onion soup! Excellent! I used fat free evaporated canned milk to cut some fat calories. If you love onions, you'll love this. Thanx!
  3. Very good flavor. I made this for an Easter side dish. Everyone thought it would make a better Easter breakfast food than a lunch/super food because of the eggs. It does remind me alot of a quiche.


Zaar...Wow, what a place! I'm one of the old timers of Zaar. I can't count the number of wonderful dishes I cooked in the past few years since joining. Along the way I have had the pleasure of meeting several Zaar chefs. Talk about your fruits and nuts! lol. I have enjoyed meeting them all. Family: What's to say...I have had the same sweet husband forever (Good thing....I'd hate to have to break a new one in...=) and live close to a couple of grown children. (Maybe you've met Smoke Alarm Jr. ..her brown rolls are sooo good!) Therefore, my family gets together often to enjoy each other's company and cooking. My greatest joy is six "little to tallerthanme" kids running around calling me Grammy. They wear me out! lol For the past thirty years I have been a Special Education teacher for grades 9-12 and love it. Took some time off last year to recovery from surgery, chemotherapy and radiation for breast cancer. (Loved the radiation....I keep imagining that we are absolutely napalming the nasty cancer cells tohellandback to keep the little suckers from returning. =) My prognosis is good and now "I'm back in the saddle again". lol. Being a north country "gurl", I am happiest outside...walking, fishing, sitting in front of an outdoor fire or being on water (although in February it's a bit stiff....=0) When indoors I like to read, garden, knit, quilt and paint. During cold Maine weather I like to warm my feet on a very large ( 100 pounds of long legs and huge feet), sweet and furry golden retriever named Kerry (aka KTBRD: Kerry the big red dawg..lol) . In the summer, the dawg and I round up the grandkids, hit the local dairy bar for a Mounds Sundae that is to die for!!!=0) . Then spend a lot of long and lazy summer days at camp . All in all...Boy, Life is good! =)
