breakfast special

Mom's Ham and Cheese Souffle (or breakfast for a crowd...)

16 slices of cubed white bread--thin sandwich style bread works best
1 lb. cubed ham, more or less, or you could use bacon
1 lb. grated sharp cheddar cheese
1 1/2 Cup swiss cheese small-cubed (or grated)
6 eggs
3 C milk
1/2 tsp onion salt
1/2 tsp dry mustard
 3 C crushed cornflakes
1/2 C melted marg or butter

Grease a 9 X 13 glass baking dish.  Place 1/2 of the bread crumbs in the dish. Add ham and cheeses and cover with the rest of the bread crumbs.  Mix eggs and spices and pur over bread crumbs. Refrigerate overnight.  Next day combine the cornflakes and butter and put on top.  Bake at 375 for 40 minutes.

Some enjoy this with salsa served on the side. Mom always made this Christmas morning for us after we were adults and bringing our own kids home for Christmas.

  2. Breakfast "specials" are a favorite. Making them ahead is always good. Your mother's looks and sounds delicious.


  3. Thanks for the recipe - this was AWESOME last Saturday! FIVE stars :)

  4. Yum! Breakfast is our favorite entertaining meal...or should I say "brunch" (I rarely get up before 8am). This would be a wonderful addition to my file...Thanks for sharing.

  6. Sounds great! I haven't made a breakfast casserole yet, but they have been on my mind recently:@)

  7. I love do-ahead breakfast dishes like this. The cornflakes must give it a delicious crunch!

  8. We have a breakfast casserole that we refer to as our Christmas breakfast casserole. Traditions are wonderful. I look forward to trying your Mom's version; the cornflakes sound like they will add a nice texture element! Thank you.

  9. Something similar to this was a Christmas favorite at our house when the kids were small - yummy!

  10. That looks delicious!

  11. Podso,
    My kind of recipe. . .all the items you already have in the pantry and the fridge! YUM! I'm putting it aside for my Spring company breakfast! Thanks for sharing Mom's recipe! They're always the best!

  12. Dotsie,

    I love the recipes that say put in refrigerator overnight! I have some that are very similar but none that use cornflakes. Good idea!

    Happy Valentine's Day!
