More accurately this is probably called an egg casserole, however my family calls it an egg soufflé.  Soufflé just sounds fancier and frankly a little more delicious.

I was first introduced to this recipe by my mother.  Her friend, Kathy, had given it to her (which I have since slightly modified).  We were hosting a Thanksgiving weekend brunch and needed something that was relatively easy to make.  The egg soufflé was a HUGE hit with my family as well as our guests.

As someone who loves and I mean LOVES brunch, the egg soufflé dish quickly became a staple item at almost all of the brunches I’ve hosted.  At birthday parties, holiday gatherings, baby showers and bridal showers alike this recipe has never failed to impress the guests!!

{Recipe} Egg Soufflé | easy and perfect brunch | Life's Tidbits


2.5 cups 2% Milk
8 oz shredded sharp cheddar cheese
5 Eggs (lightly beaten)
1 tsp salt
1 loaf French bread, crust removed and sliced
1/2 stick Butter

Makes 6-8 Servings

Butter bread then cut into 1 inch cubes.  Combine milk, cheese, eggs and salt in a bowl.

Spray pan with nonstick spray.  Place buttered bread in pan.  Pour milk, cheese, salt and egg mixture over bread.  Place in the refrigerator over night.

Bake at 300* for 1 hour or until the souffle isn’t runny.  Note:  I’ve found sometimes it takes 1.5 hours.

Cut into 8 slices and serve immediately!
