BEER AND CHEESE GRATIN
Ingredients for 4 servings:
1 cup beer
4 slices of day-old baguette
3 large eggs
1 tablespoon unsalted butter
4 slices or grated firm cheese
Beat the eggs together in a large flat container. Whisk the beer into the dish. Place the bread slices in the dish and let them soak for 1 minute. Turn and repeat on the other side.
Heat the butter in a large skillet. Add the soaked slices and brown them on both sides. Remove slices to a baking sheet.
Preheat the broiler. Lay the cheese slices on the toast and place in the broiler for a few minutes until the cheese is melted and bubbly.
Serve with a green salad and pour the same beer you used to make the toast.
