- 2 slice
- large, thick slices deli bread (egg, french)
- 4 large
- 8 oz
- sharp cheddar cheese, grated
- 1/2 tsp
- dry mustard
- tabasco, or favorite hot sauce
- salt to taste
- fresh ground black pepper
- 1/8 tsp
- cream of tartar
1Preheat the oven to 450*.
Toast the bread until it's golden brown. Remove immediately.
2Place the toast in the bottom of an 8" baking dish, that has been prepared with food release spray.
3Separate the eggs into two medium bowls: 4 egg whites in one bowl, 3 egg yolks in the other. (save the remaining yolk for another use, such as scrambled eggs or fried rice).
4Beat the yolks.
Stir in the mustard, salt and pepper, and hot sauce. Combine thoroughly. Set aside.
5Add the cream of tartar to the egg whites.
Whip the egg whites, with an electric mixer, until they form stiff peaks.
6Stir a large spoonful of whipped egg white into the yolk mixture, stirring gently until well combined.
Gently fold in the remaining egg whites, with a rubber scraper, to keep as much air/volume as possible in the mixture. (It's ready when there are no big clumps of egg white left.)
7Carefully spoon the mixture over the toast in the baking pan.
Bake at 450* for 10 minutes, or until browned and puffy.
