Wax Family “Never Fail” Egg Souffle

IngredientsWendyWaxCheeseSouffle • 6 eggs
• 10 slices white bread, crusts removed (I cut into cubes so it will fit in blender)
• 1/2 pound Velveeta cheese (any flavor or type)
• 3 tablespoons sharp cheddar
• 1 cup milk
• 1/4 pound margarine (1 stick)
• 1/2 teaspoon baking powder

Directions
• Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
• Melt butter and cheese in microwave (cut up in cubes for easier melting).
• Beat eggs and milk in blender. Add bread to mixture and blend.
• I usually add the melted cheese and butter to the blender then, plus the baking powder, and blend smooth.
• Spray casserole dish with butter flavored non-stick spray. Pour mixture into casserole. Bake uncovered for 1 hour. (Unless it needs to be fancy, I use the disposable aluminum foil casseroles!)

Note: You can mix ahead, wrap well, and freeze. Just make sure it’s at room temperature again (and give it a last stir) before you put it in oven.
You can also mix ahead and refrigerate overnight for baking the next day.
