Dutch Mama

From my storytelling pal, Tracey Miller Segarra, comes this easy & delicious egg quiche-type thing. It was so good and it actually tastes a lot like the base of a Panera egg soufflé. I’ve been making a knock-off version for years but it’s fairly labor intensive. This, however, took hardly any time at all. So, I’ll be tweaking that recipe a bit and will report back. Now, for the Dutch Mama…

  • Heat oven to 425 degrees and put an oven-safe pan inside while the oven is heating up.
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 1/8 tsp salt

Mix wet ingredients and then add in dry and stir til it’s blended together.

Put a big pat of butter into the hot pan, swirl around and let it evaporate in the oven until it forms a glaze on the bottom.

Pour the mixture into the pan and cook for 15-17 minutes (until it rises and looks like the photo.

Take out of oven, sprinkle with powdered sugar and voila! Yum! I ate half in one sitting and it was delicious fresh from the oven. I saved the other half and heated up in the microwave for breakfast and it held up better than I expected. Now that I know that, I will definitely tweak the Panera soufflé recipe as I like to make 4 or 6 soufflés in advance and have them as an easy, ready-to-heat-and-eat option.
