Why I Love This Recipe

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.

Ingredients You'll Need

French bread
Gruyere (or other) cheese, sliced fairly thick
Oil, grease, or butter for frying
1/4 C white wine (or milk for children)
Optional: Egg, poached or fried
Optional: Slices of ham


Put a small amount of oil, grease, or butter in a frying pan.

Lightly grill slices of bread.

Put slices of cheese on the bread

Cover for about 5 minutes.

Add 1 white wine or milk

Cover so that the steam will completely melt the cheese.

Bon appétit!
