omg, what an great recipe!! my boyfriend & i both thought this was simply delicious! i modified the ingredients a little by adding a full tsp. of mustard (spicy brown instead of dijon) & tossed in 3 chopped scallions. the crispy cornflake topping works well with the oh so fluffy souffle. thank you carrie!
I have a slightly different version: 1. oil or butter generously the baking pan 2. do not need to cube the bread just simply place slices to the bottom of the baking dish. ( or butter slices of bread and put them butter side down) 3. spread the layer with cheese ( could be cheddar or any other you like) and a finely chopped onion ( i even tried it with parboiled broccoli and worked fine) ( no need for onion powder, fresh is better) 4. add salt and pepper to the egg and milk mixture 5. omit the cereal topping it just makes it kind of fake.... but add extra cheese on top just before baking ( if needed, in the morning push the bread under the egg-milk and add a bit of extra egg and milk if you think it seems dry) no need to cover if there is no cornflakes... I bake it at 350 for 4-50 minutes, but check as it seems to bake a bit fast, but if puffs up really beautifully !!!
The best egg casserole I've tried. I always get asked for the recipe~
I made this for a Sunday brunch, and everyone loved it. This is a big time-saver, since you can prepare the dish the night before it is needed.
Great recipe. Easy to prepare and steals the show at any brunch. Try using Wonder Bread...
Had unexpected out of town guests overnight , pulled this recipe off the net and had instant success for breakfast the next day. Everyone throughly enjoyed the meal & couldn't believe I came up with such a great meal with such short notice. Of course I didn't give out any of my secrets !!! Thank you for sharing this with others like me !
This turned out really well. My 2 year old loved it
I'm not exactly sure why there are so many people who like this recipe. We made this for Easter, followed the recipe exactly, and 8/8 people thought is was terrible. Nothing but a mushy, heavy, egg-soaked bread mess! Completely ruined our Easter meal. Should have went with an egg frittata instead.
