you could make the souffle without the veggies or ham. you could also increase the milk to make it really ‘light’. i skipped the salt as the cheese provides enough.
Ingredients
  • cubed white bread (baguette or ciabatta), crust removed, enough to fill a layer of slow cooker OR 4 tbsp of breadcrumbs.
  • 3 cups of shredded cheese (i like to mix parrano, sharp cheddar & gruyere)
  • 1/4 cup butter (melted)
  • 6 large eggs
  • 1 to 1.5 cups whole milk
  • spinach or broccoli, finely chopped
  • black forest ham
  • red pepper, finely diced
  • paprika
Instructions
  1. grease crockpot well (1-2 tbsp of additional melted butter)
  2. beat eggs and milk. mix in chopped spinach or broccoli.
  3. layer as follows: 1/2 of cheese and 1/2 of butter; bread; ham; red pepper
  4. pour egg and milk mixture over ingredients evenly
  5. add remaining cheese & butter
  6. sprinkle with paprika
  7. cover and cook on low for approximately 5h or high for 2.5h (this depends on how hot your slow cooker gets)
  8. let it sit uncovered for 5 minutes so moisture evaporates.
  9. serve and enjoy!
