Gluten-Free Ham, Egg, and Cheese Souffle

This recipe is a version of my Gluten-Free Sausage Egg Souffle but with ham and two different kinds of cheeses instead. I love how easy this dish is to put together and how homemade and wholesome it tastes.

And using cubed ham cuts your cook time down on this recipe, because it’s ready to add to the dish, you don’t have to cook it at all! So just combine everything, throw it in the oven, and in about an hour, you will have a delicious piece of breakfast to enjoy.

Gluten-Free Ham, Egg, and Cheese Souffle

  • 1 pound cubed ham IMG_20180729_120349.jpg
  • 6 pieces of Gluten-Free bread, cubed
  • 1 cup sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 1 cup medium cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 8 eggs, whisked
  • 1/4 cup almond milk
  • 1 teaspoon yellow mustard
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • butter to grease the pan

Cube the bread into dice-sized pieces and shred the cheddar cheese. Whisk the eggs, milk, mustard, salt, and pepper together.

Heat the oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9×9 pan with butter and put 1/3 of the ham into the bottom of the pan. Continue layering with 1/3 of the bread and 1/3 cheese. Layer until finished and pour the egg mixture evenly over the top. Cover with foil and put into the oven.

Which version do you like better? I really enjoyed this ham and two cheese souffle. Let me know what you think!

Red, White, and Blue, With Lemonade, Too!

Who loves lemonade? I do! I love limeade, too. But there’s something about lemonade!

Lemonade tastes so bright, it’s like your drinking in summer. It’s refreshing and delicious and one of my all time favorite summer drinks! Speaking of all time favorites, Happy 4th of July! Well, almost, tomorrow!

The 4th of July is hands down my favorite holiday. Why? Fireworks, that’s why. This is our last 4th on the beach in FL and hot as it is, the fireworks show is amazing! Because you’re on the coast, you can see up to five fireworks shows at once! The coolest.

Fireworks are my favorite! The way the gold ones drape and fall like an elegant chandelier is so beautiful and the grand finale is like the celebration of all things fireworks!  Anyhow..

back to lemonade.

This recipe is tart and crisp with a sweetness, and berries, too! This 4th of July lemonade is perfect for your festive celebrations and everyone will love it!

Triple Berry Crisp Protein Shake

Are you a breakfast eater? I really try to be but it’s just not my favorite. Actually, I love breakfast food, but I will just have breakfast for dinner if I miss it. HAHA.

So when I do eat breakfast, it’s sometimes leftovers (maybe even dinner LOL) and other times, a protein shake. You never know with me.

But yummmmmm. I cannot get over how delicious this is! The berries combine with oats, cinnamon, and almond milk and it tastes like a cold, liquid berry crisp.
