Because of varying schedules at our house this past week, our "Christmas morning" came on Christmas Eve. That called for a special Christmas morning breakfast!
|Making its debut!|
DAY-AHEAD CHEESE SOUFFLE
8 slices white or whole wheat bread (I used whole wheat).
1/4 cup butter (could use less), melted and cooled
6 eggs, well-beaten
Salt and pepper to taste
2 cups milk (I used skim).
3/4 lb. sharp Cheddar cheese, grated
- Cut crusts from bread; cut bread into cubes. Melt utter in saucepan. Stir together with eggs, salt, and pepper. Blend milk into egg mixture. Place half of bread cubes in greased casserole; cover with half grated cheese; repeat; pour egg mixture over all. Refrigerate at least 8 hours. When ready to bake, preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Bake 30-40 minutes. Six servings.
One of the things I liked about this is that it was assembled the day before, and all I had to do was just set it in the oven when I was ready to cook it. While I used regular cheese, it would be possible to use low-fat cheese - or even fat-free cheese.
My, my! Tomorrow is the last day of 2013! Where has this year gone? Are you ready for New Year's Eve? I still have some Christmas posts for you! Well, I suppose they will always be good, so stay tuned.:-)
Thank you for reading. I really appreciate your comments.
