How to Make Snooty Cheese Sandwich


  • 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.

    Serve immediately.
  • 8NOTE: This recipe is easy to double.
