    1       c            Orange juice
      3/4   c            Packed brown sugar
      1/2   ts           Cinnamon
      3/4   c            Raisins
    5       c            Lightly packed 1-inch cubes
                         French bread (about 6 oz.)
    6       oz           Monterey Jack cheese,
                         Shredded (about 2 1/2 cups)
      1/2   c            Toasted almonds
                         Lightly sweetened whipped
                         Cream, light cream, or ice
                         Cream
 
   In a small saucepan, combine the orange juice, sugar, cinnamon, and
   raisins.  Bring to a boil, stirring.  Pour over the bread and toss to mix.
   Add 2 cups of the cheese and the almonds, and toss.  Turn into a buttered 1
   1/2 quart baking dish, and sprinkle the remaining cheese on top.  Bake in a
   preheated 375F oven 15-20 minutes, until the pudding is heated through and
   the cheese is melted.  Serve warm, topped with cream or ice cream, if
   desired.
