This is so easy and so good. This can be made early in the day and refrigerated until ready to bake. It is an alternative to spoon bread. I have been making this since 1955. My children did not like spoon bread and when I made this they loved it. It has replaced spoon bread for us.

shouldn't you mix in 1 tsp baking powder just before puting in the oven? might be kind of hard with just the eggs.
