Ridiculously easy Christmas morning Egg Souffle

One of the most important traditions in many homes is gathering ‘round the tree on Christmas morning. But after all the excitement of opening gifts simmers down, it’s nice to sit down to a healthy and delicious breakfast.

Here is a dish my family eats year ‘round. But it’s perfect for Christmas morning because it’s easy, and that’s especially important because Mom and Dad need to open their gifts, too! You can also prepare it in advance and let it cook while everyone is waking up. In keeping with the Christmas theme, I added some colorful vegetables in red and green to keep the spirit going through mealtime.

All my kids love this egg dish, and I hope it becomes a tradition in your home, too.


6 eggs

8 oz. small curd cottage cheese

8 oz. grated mild cheddar cheese

1/4 cup Bisquick

1 cup milk

1/2 cup mixture of asparagus tips and sun dried tomatoes (drained and sliced)


Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Spray Pam into an 8X8 baking dish. Mix the eggs in a large bowl.

Add each of the ingredients–cottage cheese, cheddar cheese, Bisquick and milk into the bowl. Stir until smooth.

Pour the egg mixture into the baking dish then sprinkle veggies onto mixture. Bake for about 45 minutes, until the top browns.
