This wasa very good recipe, somewhat oily from all the butter, I think I would half the butter and add 1 cup more cheese. We used sharp cheddar and it was lovely. We did feel the need to salt it though. A tip I ould like to add is to beat the egg before adding it, and add it SLOWLY while whisking the entire time so you don't have scrambled egg. I would also add the cheese in small amounts so it doesn't clump. I baked this in a souffle dish, but next time wopuld use a rectangular baking dish for more of the "chewy" sides that we were all fighting over. All in all this dish has IMMENSE potential. I am sauting pork sausage with onions and peppers to top the leftovers this weekend for breakfast. My husband who is a grit purist enjoyed this....of course I told him he was eating southern cheese souffle to get him to try it! What can I say? I'm evil!
