These little gourmet make the perfect signature item at your brunch soiree!
We don’t have a Panera Bread in the town that I live in. I tried their Ham and Swiss Souffle just a couple of years ago. Prior to that, I would always get something sweet for breakfast when we visited one. I have been obsessed with this omelet-type breakfast since the very first bite that I had.
PANERA BREAD HAM AND SWISS SOUFFLE RECIPE
I have literally been wanting to duplicate the recipe for a year now. But, I kept thinking it was going to be complex and time-consuming and just never got down to the nitty-gritty of planning the recipe.
Oh my…. I am so glad I finally did. Let me make one thing clear, this is not a hard or difficult recipe to make. In fact, it comes together really quickly just as easy as biscuits, pancakes, waffles, or any other breakfast to make!
I started with puff pastry, because who really ever wants to make puff pastry from scratch? In a pinch, you could use crescent rolls, but they won’t be as flaky.
