An amazingly easy and yummy way to make a souffle, the source is my old copy of "Diet for a Small Planet". Now an old favorite, this was one of the first recipes I mastered as a teenager while teaching myself to cook and it was a big hit with my boyfriend at the time. Serve it for breakfast with some fruit or for dinner with a green salad.

    Layer the cheese and bread in an oiled baking dish, starting with the bread. Pour over it the milk or milk mixture.

    Bake at 350 degrees F for 1 hour in a pan of hot water. Serve immediately. Use a deep dish if you want this to appear more like a souffle. If you use a shallow dish it will appear more like a quiche.
