8 ingredients

My first culinary 'experience'. I must have been about 7, reading Heidi. This recipe was in the edition I was reading and I had to run to the kitchen and try it out immediately. Mom watched. Still fantastic! Expect something like a savoury-cheesey French Toast.

  • 2 slices bread, thick (preferably bakery, but sandwich bread will do if nothing else is available)
  • enough swiss cheese, to make a thick filling (the real stuff, i suppose cheddar would be good too, but heidi's grandfather always gave her gruyer)
  • 1 egg
  • 3 tablespoons cream
