WOW, this recipe is great!!! I used crusty french bread and the baked presentation was beautiful. This will become my Christmas Eve souffle as well as a regular for breakfasts for several. I used a lot of Tabasco and it didn't add heat that I could tell.
Outstanding! The crusty part is to die for! I love that you put it together the night before, then just stick it in the oven when you wake up. We put quite a bit of Tabasco and couldn't taste it. Next time I might try a tad of kirsch and nutmeg in with the milk and eggs instead, since the crusty bread and melted cheese flavor/texture remind me of fondue. THANKS - we'll be making this again!
