  • Immerse the bread strips in the egg mixture. Immediately transfer strips to the baking dish, and arrange randomly on the bottom. Pour the white wine and any remaining egg mixture over the bread strips. Sprinkle the grated cheese and thyme leaves over top.

  • Transfer baking dish to oven. Bake until the gratin is puffy, the center has set, and the cheese is brown and bubbly, 30 to 40 minutes. Remove from oven, and serve.

I've made this many times, and it is delish! However, I make it as an appetizer. I have one of the Pampered Chef one-bite tartlet pans. I simply cut the bread into smaller strips or into cubes, bake it, and voila!: a delicious quiche-like appetizer. Always a hit. I'm making it this weekend for a party, and so happy I found the recipe online (took me a little searching). I think Iwill change the spices up a bit and use rosemary instead of thyme. Bon Appetit!
