ingredients. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and cover. Simmer 5 minutes
or until livers are done. Pour mixture into a blender and purée until

John Wayne’s Favorite

Butter one side of each slice of bread. Place a single layer of bread, butter side down, in a buttered 9x13 baking dish. Top with chilies. Sprinkle with half of each cheese. Top with another layer of bread, buttered side up. Beat together eggs and milk. Pour over bread. Sprinkle with remaining half of each cheese. Scatter parsley over top. Cover and refrigerate overnight. Bake at 350° for 45 minutes or until a knife inserted in center comes out clean. Ten servings. You may substitute 8 oz. jalapeno pepper jack cheese for the Monterey Jack cheese and chili peppers.
