When I started to mix this up, I was a little concerned that it might not be flavorful enough. I was certainly wrong – the simple goodness of quality ingredients simply shines through. I used Fontina cheese, as I had some on hand, but Swiss would be excellent too. I have made this for brunch several times and also for a simple supper. The biggest advantage for the cook is that it bakes for 15-20 minutes, allowing you some time to prepare your other dishes. Try serving it with breakfast sausage or bacon and a fruit cup or a green vegetable for supper.
4 Large Eggs -- lightly beaten
2 Tablespoons Butter -- melted
1 Cup Whole Milk
1 Teaspoon Cornstarch
1/8 Teaspoon Baking Powder
1/4 Teaspoon Salt
1/2 Cup Swiss Cheese -- shredded
In a large bowl, whisk the first seven ingredients. Stir in cheese. Pour into 4 buttered 4 ounce custard cups.
Place cups in a baking pan. Fill pan with boiling water to a depth of 1 inch. Bake, uncovered, at 425° for 15-20 minutes or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean.
