Healthy Breakfast

I really like this Healthy Breakfast

These elegant breakfast souffles are the perfect dish for a holiday brunch

Easier to assemble than you might think, these elegant little individual egg dishes make a pretty great start to breakfast or brunch.

The ingredients are the same used for all kinds of breakfast casseroles: bread, cheese, your choice of bacon, sausage, or ham, or if you prefer a vegetable version, sauteed onions, peppers or mushrooms. A custard made of egg and milk — or if you want something a little richer, half and half or light cream — binds the ingredients. Set them up the night before and bake them off in the morning.

The recipe comes from the menu of a bed and breakfast inn where I worked years ago. The family who ran the inn called them egg bakes, and often served them for holiday breakfasts. At the inn, though, they thought that “egg bakes” wasn’t quite the image they wanted to project so they renamed them grandly as breakfast souffles.
