    2 1/2   oz           Gruyere cheese
    2 1/2   oz           Emmenthaler cheese
    1                    Egg
    2 1/2   tb           Milk
    1                    Clove garlic
      1/3   c            Plain flour
    1       t            Baking powder
                         Salt, pepper
   12                    Slices square white bread
                         Oil for deep frying
 
   Step l.  Grate cheeses, put into small bowl of
   electric mixer. Add egg, milk, crushed garlic, sifted
   flour and baking powder, salt and pepper. Beat on
   medium speed 5 minutes. Step 2. Remove crusts from
   bread. Spread about 2 tablespoons of mixture on to
   each slice of bread, right to outer edges. Cut each
   slice into four squares. (If bread is fresh remove
   crusts after you have spread the cheese mixture; the
   crusts hold the bread firm). Step 3. put in hot oil,
   cheese - side down; fry until golden brown on both
   sides about 2 minutes, turning once.  Drain on
   absorbent paper. Source: Dinner Party Cookbook ch.
