1 dozen large eggs
1 quart milk, slightly heated
1 t salt

Beat eggs with mixer. Add milk. Bake in 9 x 13 pan with sides 35 - 45 minutes at 325 degrees. (Check eggs frequently after about 30 minutes. Stir to prevent sticking). Pour into a cheesecloth bag. (This bag is something you sew together by placing 2 pieces of cheesecloth together, (or, 2 thin washcloths sewn together), about the size of a large dinner plate, which you sew together in a circle, leaving about 4 to 5 inches open on one end). After pouring into the bag, use a rubber band and close the opening very tight. Lay the bag on a cookie sheet. Put another cookie sheet on top of the bag. Place a large brick or two on top of cookie sheet. This weight will be heavy enough to compress the cheese and squeeze out the liquid. Let it sit like this for about 2 hours. Slowly peel away the bag. This should now look like a yellow circle about the size of a medium dinner plate. Cover and refrigerate overnight and serve with Easter lunch/dinner. Goes well with kielbasa and beets and horseradish.

*Optional idea to sweeten with honey and vanilla extract
*also may be heated w/ constant stirring on stovetop w/ very low heat
