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.

How to Make Easy and Elegant Cheese Souffle


  1. Layer the cheese and bread in an oiled baking dish, starting with the bread. Pour over it the milk or milk mixture.
  2. Beat, with the eggs, the salt and remaining ingredients and pour this over the bread mixture. Let stand for 30 minutes.
  3. 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.
