Ready, Set, Cook! Special Edition Contest Entry: This makes a great brunch dish with a breakfast ham steak or side of bacon. It's also a great side dish for carne asada. By using a larger souffle dish than necessary, you eliminate the need to wrap the top of the dish to allow for expansion. It's a real time-saver and the results are perfect!
