In today’s economy we really have to watch our budgets. Save where you can. Get creative with your food leftovers to really stretch your food budget dollars. This is a wonderful recipe to utilize yesterday bread, or various left over breads, such as French bread which tends to get harder the next day, etc. It’s such a versatile recipe that you can basically utilize any type of bread you like and have on hand; such as pita bread, fajita, French bread, multigrain bread etc. Make the most of your food, use it creatively instead of throwing it out, and let noting go to waste. Leftover’s make great nutritious for lunches for the kids. It’s delicious served cold as well. For a brunch gathering, you can also opt to add bacon or ham in the layers. It’s an easy recipe that you can enjoy all year round, simply serve it with side dishes of the season. Serves 6 2 tablespoons (30 g) olive oil 3 large onions, sliced thinly ½ cup (60 g) grated Parmesan cheese 1½ cup (60 g) shredded Cheddar cheese 1 tablespoon of fresh chives, snipped 8 slices of whole-wheat bread, remove crusts 3 eggs, lightly beaten 2 cups (500 ml) of milk Fresh ground pepper (*optional)Embellish with fresh balsamic leaves And Fresh parsley sprigs Heat oil in a skillet and cook onions over a gentle for 10-15 minutes until the onions are golden soft.
