Ham and Cheese Souffle

READY IN: 1hr 25mins
Recipe by Leslie in Texas

I first had this at a brunch about 18 years ago. It was so good, I got the recipe and have made it for either brunch or weekend breakfasts since then. It is good with either a fruit salad for breakfast, or a green salad and white wine for brunch or a light dinner. Especially great since it can be made the night before and popped in the oven when you need it! For a change, substitute cheddar cheese for the Swiss cheese.Prep time does not include chill time.

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.
