French Toast Souffle

The Knapp Family is a big family and a Christmas gathering is an exciting time for everyone.  The focus is on family, food and fun.  The table is filled with traditional family favorites and the eating festival begins Christmas Eve and continues well into the next evening.

On Christmas morning, my sister-in-law hosted a fabulous breakfast for family and friends.  One of the main dishes that she prepared was a wonderful french toast casserole.  The casserole is a blend of eggs, cream cheese, vanilla, and maple syrup which makes for a delightfully rich breakfast treat.

  7. And why is this called a souffle???Souffles separate the egg yolks from the whites and beat them separately. This is a casserole. Not a souffle.
