Description

Maybe it's because meat is so expensive, but I find cooks get very conservative when it comes to choosing accompaniments for a steak dinner. No one ever got in trouble serving a baked potato, but sometimes you have to take a chance.

Ingredients
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 4 cups cubed Italian bread
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • ½ onion, diced
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 cup chicken stock
  • ¼ cup heavy cream
  • 1 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves
  • freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • 1 ounce crumbled Gorgonzola cheese
  • 1 tablespoon crumbled Gorgonzola cheese
Directions
  1. 1. Preheat oven to 200 degrees F (95 degrees C).
  2. 2. Generously grease 4 ramekins with 1 tablespoon butter. Set aside.
  3. 3. Place bread cubes in a single layer on a baking sheet and bake in the preheated oven until dry, about 20 minutes.
  4. 4. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  5. 5. Melt 1 tablespoon butter in a skillet over medium heat. Stir in onion and salt; cook, stirring, until onions are light golden brown, 5 to 7 minutes.
  6. 6. Stir chicken stock, cream, thyme, and black pepper into skillet; bring mixture to a boil and remove from heat.
  7. 7. Stir bread cubes and chicken stock mixture in a large bowl until well combined. Stir in 1 ounce crumbled gorgonzola cheese. Divide mixture evenly between 4 prepared ramekins. Top each with a small crumble of gorgonzola.
  8. 8. Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown, 15 to 20 minutes.
