JoAnna's Notes: "If one cheese is good, and two even better, why not
go culinarily wild and enjoy three scrumptious (but low-fat or
reduced-fat) cheeses? Take note: This wonderful baked bread and cheese
combo needs to rest for at least an hour before baking----and can be
prepared up to 24 hours in advance". - JoAnna Lund


Mary's Notes: This was wonderful and reminded me of a recipe my aunt
used to make using sausage in it. Very similiar to quiche also. Hal
and I both liked it. I highly recommend that you throughly spray your
pan, the cheese does stick. I used Veggie Slice Cheese (tofu cheese)
without a problem and Alpine Lace brand nonfat for the Parmesan. The
Parmesan was already shredded, and the Veggie slices I just cut into
small pieces. Veggie slices melted beautifully and really tasted good
in this recipe. No meat needed in this recipe, but I might try some
chopped broccoli next time.
