  1. Egg and Cheese Casserole Recipe

This Egg and Cheese Casserole is perfect for a brunch or potluck. The bread basically melts into the eggs and cheese to make a light and cheesy breakfast souffle!

egg and cheese souffle

Breakfast is one on my favorite meals! I love bacon, eggs, pancakes, bagels and cream cheese – all of it! On a separate note, I love to entertain and I can throw a killer Brunch – not to mention brunch is one of the easiest meals to make so it is a natural for me! My absolute go-to brunch recipe is this super easy and crazy yummy Easy Egg and Cheese Souffle. I have been making it for years and I have finally learned I need to make two of them because they are gone so fast!

What I especially love about this is you prepare it the night before your brunch and then just pop it in the oven in the morning – easy as pie….or souffle!!

Here’s what you need:

  • 10 slices of bread – I use Challah or egg bread… you want to use a sweeter bread
  • 1 stick of butter
  • 8 eggs, beaten
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp dry mustard
  • 2 cups shredded cheese – I usually use cheddar, but pick your favorite
  • 2 cups milk
  • paprika (optional)

Here’s what you do:

  • Spray 9×13 pan with non-stick spray
  • Remove crust from bread and cube it
  • Melt butter and toss with bread
  • Place bread in pan
  • Sprinkle cheese on top of bread
  • In a bowl, mix egg (beaten), salt, milk & mustard
  • Pour mixture evenly over bread
  • Sprinkle with paprika (optional)
  • Cover and place in refrigerator overnight
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 45- 60 minutes

      1. What if I accidently put it in the freezer instead of refrigerator? Will it ruin the souffle?

  1. For some reason mine turned out really soggy 🙁
    The taste is delicious but the texture was horrible, don’t know what I did wrong!

  2. 5 stars
    This recipe is fantastic! Very easy to make without a lot of ingredients. My Mom gave me this recipe years ago and I lost it. My Mom has since passed away and I couldn’t find it anywhere until now. Thank you so much for sharing this. I’m going to make it and enjoy the good memories it brings.

  3. This looks perfect for a brunch a I’m hosting! Can this be baked the night before and reheated in the morning?
