2 tablespoons whole milk
1 1/4 cups shredded cheddar cheese
2 1/2 tablespoons pickled or roasted peppers, drained and finely chopped
1 tablespoon chopped chives
1-3 pinches cayenne pepper (optional)
Salt and pepper
Preheat oven to 350°F. Line baking sheet with parchment paper. Make a v-cut the length of the baguette, being careful to leave the ends intact. Remove v-shaped bread from baguette and hollow out baguette. Do not cut through bottom or sides. Place on baking sheet.
Beat eggs and milk in bowl until combined. Stir in cheese, peppers, chives, cayenne, salt and pepper. Slowly pour into baguette, spreading cheese and peppers evenly. Bake 25-35 minutes, until set, and golden brown on top. Let cool 5 minutes before cutting into 1-inch slices.
