Panera Bread Ham and Swiss Souffle Recipe

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.


I have wanted to duplicate the recipe for a year now. But I kept thinking it would be complex and time-consuming, so I never got down to the nitty-gritty of planning it.

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 easily as biscuits, pancakes, waffles, or any other breakfast!

I started with puff pastry, because who wants to make puff pastry from scratch? In a pinch, you could use crescent rolls, but they won’t be as flaky.

  • 2 tablespoons butter salted or unsalted
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • ½ teaspoon salt or to taste
  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 4 large eggs at room temperature
  • ½ cup Swiss shredded, you can also use Monterey, Colby, Havarti, or Manchego cheese
  • ¼ cup Romano cheese shredded
  • ½ teaspoon granulated garlic
  • 6 slices deli ham
  • 2 – 3 dashes hot sauce optional
  • 1 sheet puff pastry thawed


  • Preheat the oven to 425°F.
  • Place six 5-inch ramekins or six 5-inch tart pans on a sheet pan.
  • Place a heavy-bottom saucepan over medium heat. Add the butter.
  • Once the butter is melted, whisk in the flour. Cook, stirring constantly for about 30 seconds.
  • Next, whisk in the milk and cook until it has thickened. Season with salt and pepper. Remove the pan from the heat and cool slightly.
  • In a large bowl, whisk the eggs, cooled milk sauce, cheese, garlic, and hot sauce until well combined.
  • Unwrap the puff pastry and cut into 6 equal squares. Press each square into your ramekin or tart pan. Press it down in the bottom and up the sides really good and divide ham between the ramekins.
  • Divide the egg mixture between the ramekins.
  • Bake until they are puffed up and golden brown. It should take 25 to 30 minutes.
  • Remove from the oven and cool slightly before serving.

  1. Has anyone successfully tried this recipe in a large scale version in a glass baking dish rather than individual ramekins? If so, what temp and length of bake worked well?

  2. Could you make the milk sauce the day before and refrigerate until needed or do you think it would “break down” when re- heated?

    1. I don’t think it’ll work well making the sauce early. It’s based on a souffle, I *think* it’ll seperate but I have not tried it.

  3. 5 stars
    Super simple to make and just like the original. It’s a great “make ahead” and reheat for weekday breakfast. Third time making it and does not disappoint.

  4. 5 stars
    Super good and very happy with how they came out. I did cupcake tins and added nutritional yeast and spinach to the recipe. Husband burnt hid mouth he liked them so much.
    Thank you!

  5. 5 stars

  6. Looking forward to making the souffles. They are an absolute favorite of mine but where is the Swiss in the recipe
