1 ts Salt
Several dashes Tabasco sauce
10 Eggs, divided

feed tube with the motor running and process until finely grated.

Use the shredding disc to process the Cheddar and Monterey Jack
cheeses separately. Remove and set aside.
Using the metal blade, process to combine the salt, tabasco sauce, 2
eggs, flour, baking powder and grated Parmesan cheese. With the
machine running, add the hot melted butter through the feed tube.

smooth. With the machine running, add 3 eggs through the feed tube.

Combine the 2 mixtures and spread in a buttered 17x10 inch jelly roll
Bake 15 minutes in a preheated 400^ oven, then reduce temperature to
350^ and bake about 34-40 minutes more until the cheese is set and
firm. Cut into squares and serve warm with your favorite salsa. Makes
24 thin slices.
Note: If you have a large capacity machine, all the eggs may be added
at once and both cheeses may be added and combined in the processor
This typical appetizer is usually baked in a rectangular pan and cut
in squares. The presentation is further enhanced if accompanied by a
tomato salsa of your choice. It should be served warm, but can be
baked ahead and reheated.
