You can play with the flavor of this recipe by changing the type of blue cheese you use—from sharp Stilton to saltier Gorgonzola.—Crystal Jo Bruns, Iliff, Colorado
- 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
- 4 cups (16 ounces) crumbled blue cheese
- 5 large eggs
- 5 large egg yolks
- 3 cups heavy whipping cream
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon pepper
- In a small skillet over medium heat, melt butter. Add onion; cook and stir until softened. Reduce heat to medium-low; cook, stirring occasionally, for 20 minutes or until onion is golden brown. Add garlic; cook 2 minutes longer.
- 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.
- Bake, uncovered, at 375° for 40-45 minutes or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean. Let stand 10 minutes before serving. Serve warm. Yield: 12 servings.

"This has amazing flavor, but is so, so, so rich that you have to make something plain to go along with it."
