Notes

Recipe from Thérèse Chevalley, an indigène of the Haute Vallais.

The number of slices of bread and cheese to use depends on people’s appetites!

Best combination is glutinous French bread and Gruyere cheese.

You can add an egg on top, and still better a slice of ham between the bread and cheese plus the egg (poached or fried) on top of everything.
