Vegetable Cheese Casserole

My daughter has recently become a vegetarian, so I'm always looking for yummy recipes for her that are meatless, here's one.


8 whole-wheat bread slices
3/4 cup Gruyere cheese -- shredded
1/4 cup chopped green onions
3 eggs -- slightly beaten
1 1/4 cups milk
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1/2 teaspoon Tabasco sauce
1/2 teaspoon ground basil -- * see note
1 dash salt
2 tomatoes -- sliced


* Use 1 tablespoon chopped fresh basil if preferred. Substitute Swiss cheese for
Gruyere if preferred.

1. Use a 9 x 9-inch pan or baking dish. Grease the pan with margarine.
Place 4 slices of the bread in the bottom of pan. Sprinkle with 1/2 cup of the
cheese and the green onions. Top with remain
ing bread slices.

2. Combine eggs, milk, mayonnaise, Tabasco, basil and salt in small bowl;
mix well. Pour the egg mixture over the bread; press so bread is covered
with the liquid.

3. Cover and refrigerate 30 minutes or longer.

4. Uncover and top with thin slices of tomatoes and sprinkle with the
remaining cheese. Bake in preheated 350-degree oven 30-35 minutes. It is done
when a knife inserted near center comes out cl
ean. Let stand 10-15 minutes before serving.
