Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup butter, cubed
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 French bread baguettes (10-1/2 ounces each), cut into 1-inch cubes

  • 5 large egg yolks
  • 3 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 1 teaspoon salt

Place half of the bread in a greased 13x9-in. baking dish. Layer with onion mixture and half of blue cheese. Top with remaining bread and blue cheese.
In a large bowl, whisk the eggs, egg yolks, cream, salt and pepper. Pour over bread; let stand for 15 minutes or until bread is softened.
