Garlic Chick's Note:
This recipe originally came from Lone Star Restaurant in Santee, South Carolina. My sister gave it to me and it is delicious. Using day old flavored bread is a plus. You can tweak it with fresh herbs in the cheese mixture to your taste. For us, this has never turned out too "watery" as with other recipes. Bon apetit!
