It's Sunday morning and you're just lying in bed, starved, anxiously awaiting the call, Breakfast is ready! You recall that feeling from childhood; can't you just smell the bacon, the coffee, pots clanking, teapot whistling? Some warming memories of a Sunday morning. So, I enjoy tantalizing my guests with food that soothes the soul, so simply tastes good, freshly prepared from scratch. A lot of thought goes into my menu, my table setting, my music, my service, what I call, The Anatomy of Sunday Brunch.
What's Sunday Brunch without some sort of meat, like thick-smoked bacon and spicy Italian sausages, some type of bread, hot out of the oven, like homemade buttermilk biscuits, blueberry muffins, a favorite side, like Grannie's home-fries or Mommy's fried apples, completed only with some type of prepared eggs, and I've done them all - scrambled, omeletted, fried, poached. But none have thrilled my guests more than my Cheesed Egg Souflee! Believe it when I say, my guests will take home the leftover eggs! Really, left over eggs? Who does that?
Cheesed Egg Souflee - A Guest Favorite
And it tastes even better than it looks, even after the poof & glitz are gone! But the best part about it, it's easy! So easy, no recipe is required. It's basically scrambled eggs whipped and poured into a (buttered) ramekin or muffin tin placed on the bottom shelf of the oven and baked (375 degrees) for 30-40 minutes! Just eggs, a little milk, some melted butter, then add whatever else you'd like - fresh herbs, salt, pepper, veggies, meat, cheese, etc. The only difference I find, is when I whip the eggs in the blender - essentially whipping air into the eggs; causes it to then poof up in the oven. WARNING! It only stays poofed for an instant and then it quickly deflates. Though, initially, it's just a beautiful presentation and why they say to serve it immediately!
NOTE: You may also add some cream of tarter, lemon juice or vinegar to stabilize it, so that it stays poofed a little longer (to at least get it to the table); though, no matter, it will deflate and quite quickly!
