Cooked Bread with Grana Cheese

Pancotto al grana


This recipe should originate in the Modena area. It is a much richer remake of the classical and old "pancotto", enriched with ingredients such as Grana cheese and cream. It is usually served as a first-course dish.

Difficulty: Easy

Ingredients: 12 slices of stale bread 1 cm high, 200 g of grated Parmesan, 250 g of milk, 250 g milk cream, 4 eggs, 1 tbsp. of flour, salt, butter for saucepan. Serves 6.

Preparation: butter a saucepan and cover its bottom with bread slices. In a bowl, whisk the eggs and stir in the Parmesan, flour, milk, cream and a pinch of salt. Pour the mixture on the bread slices and leave to stand for about an hour. Afterwards, move the saucepan to a pre-heated oven at 200° for around half an hour. Leave to stand before serving.
