This easy and delicious recipe for a cheese souffle is from my mom, thanks, Mom! 

A fresh fruit salad or mixed greens with a light vinaigrette dressing are great sides with this dish. And, this souffle may be made ahead of time, just cover with foil and refrigerate overnight.


  • 8 slices day-old white bread, buttered on both sides with crusts removed
  • 1 1/2 pounds shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 6 eggs, beaten
  • 2 1/2 cups milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • Dash cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon brown sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon onion powder


  1. Whisk all of the ingredients together, except the bread.
  2. Grease a 10 x 13-inch pan with butter or cooking spray.
  3. Layer bread slices and cheese: start with one slice, then a handful of cheese, repeat until done.
  4. Pour egg mixture over layers.
  5. Cover with aluminum foil and refrigerate overnight.
  6. Bring to room temperature.
  7. Bake uncovered at 350 degrees F for about 1 hour, or until souffle is brown and bubbly. Let stand 10 minutes before slicing and serving.
