white bread, with crusts trimmed
sharp Cheddar cheese, shredded
The first time I made this, I made it exactly as Pat. C. directed, and it was pretty good. Not amazing or anything, but a decent recipe and easy enough to put together and very nice for a light dinner with a dise salad. The second time I made it, I didn't have any bread on hand (other than the squishy "pillow" bread which isn't really good for anything except getting the kids to eat peanut butter) I DID have some asiago cheese bagels from Panera that were getting stale though. I sliced them in half, and then in half again (so I had 4 thin circles from each bagel) and LET ME TELL YOU it was OUTSTANDING! WOW! I plan on making this again the next time we have overnight guests, and I will buy the bagels just for this. Even my six year old, who turned up her nose at it the first time, ate two helpings when I made it with the bagels. I wish I could give it more than five stars. Thanks for a great recipe!
Not really gross, but not good either. My family thought it just tasted like mushy bread. Easier to make a fritata or omelet.
Love this quick and easy recipe! I add sauted onions, a splash of sherry, and a little dry mustard to the egg/milk mixture.
I have a similar recipe that my cousin gave me many years ago and I've made it every Thanksgiving since then. The key is to NOT use so much liquid. If you use too much, the bread will be too soggy. Use only 1 cup milk and it turns out better. Also, use older, dryer bread as the other reviewer stated. But this is awsome. I made my own from memory since this is an annual tradition with my family. They would get upset if I didn't make a "Cheese Souffle" on Thanksgiving.
I'm going to have to critize. This misses the mark. First, it's not a souffle. It's a baked egg and cheese dish. A souffle needs to have eggs separated and folded together after having been whipped. I'll play with it and come up with a breakfast casserole, but wouldn't consider making this to serve as a 'souffle' again.
This was tasty and easy. Allowing time for the bread to soak up the egg mixture is critical. I think this may be where the cook who said hers was like soggy bread may have gone wrong. Making it the night before is the way to go.
This was awesome!! I took another reviewers advise and used an Asiago cheese bagel. I only made half a recipe. I also threw in a little dry mustard and a small handful of green onion and mushrooms. I cooked in a large loaf pan and bread was covered. Next time I will not butter the bagel and will cook at 350 instead of 375. All in all, it was teriffic.
Just like my mother used to make! Quick, easy and delicious!
