The holiday season is officially here and we had such a good time hosting Thanksgiving this year. Every year for the past 8 years we have traveled to celebrate with our family for the holidays. Mr. Fearless Dining’s parents came here and I finally got to make a turkey!!
I also made a very special family breakfast for everyone! Everyone enjoyed our big family breakfast together and I made these Bacon Soufflés for everyone. My son loves Farmer John Classic Pork Sausage Links so these soufflés are filled with both sausage and Farmer John Thick Cut Premium Bacon!
I would love to hear some of your favorite family traditions. Do you all have a big family breakfast with the relatives who travel in?
If you haven’t shopped at Smart & Final, you are going to love this store. They always have a lot of great gluten free products at a fraction of the cost.
They also carry our favorite Farmer John Thick Cut Premium Bacon and Farmer John Classic Pork Sausage Links, which are the stars in this breakfast soufflé recipe! Just look in the Smart & Final meat department for Farmer John products.
Farmer John sausage has a rich flavor. It is so tender and juicy, making it perfect with eggs. I like to pre-cook the sausage links and bacon before adding it to the soufflés. Farmer John sausage links cook in just minutes.
Farmer John also makes several types of bacon including Classic, Old-Fashioned Maple, Thick Cut, and Lower Sodium. For this recipe, I used Farmer John’s Thick Cut Bacon to really emphasize the bacon flavors! I love that it is a meatier cut. Old-Fashioned Maple Bacon would also work very well.
Soufflés are easy to make, and they have a fancy sophisticated reputation. They are a lot easier to make than you may think. I will walk you through every step of the way.
How to make Breakfast Soufflés:
The first step is to separate the egg whites from the egg yolks.
Whip the egg whites until they form stiff peaks. This is what makes these soufflés puff up.
Add the heavy cream, cheese, egg yolks, and spices to a bowl and mix well.
Pour the egg yolk mixture into the egg whites and mix carefully. (*Tip: mixing these together gently will keep the puffed air inside, making your soufflés rise higher.)
What kinds of cheeses work best in soufflés? I would say use your favorite! My kids like quite a few cheeses, but their favorites are cheddar and mozzarella.
Best Cheeses for Soufflés:
Chop up the cooked sausage links and cooked bacon on a cutting board.
Mix in the Farmer John Thick Cut Bacon and Pork Sausage Link pieces into the egg mixture. Pour the mixture into either ramekin cups, if you want single serving breakfast soufflés for everyone, or one big casserole dish if you prefer one large soufflé.
Bake at 350 Fahrenheit degrees for 15 minutes. Serve while the soufflés are still puffed up. They fall quickly as they cool off.
- 5 large eggs
- 1/3 cup heavy cream
- 1/2 cup cheddar cheese
- 6 1 package of 8 oz. Farmer John® Classic Pork Sausage Links, chopped
- 6 1 package of 16 oz. Farmer John® Thick Cut Premium Bacon, chopped
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon thyme
- In two frying pans, add raw Farmer John Thick Cut Bacon to one and the raw Farmer John Classic Pork Sausage Links to the other. Cook both on medium heat until they are done, based on package cooking instructions. Chop into bite-sized pieces.
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
- Crack open the eggs carefully, separating the egg whites from the egg yolks.
- Pour the egg whites into a large bowl. Use an electric mixer to whip the egg whites until they form stiff peaks. This should take 3-4 minutes.
- In a medium-sized bowl, add egg yolks, cream, cheese, spices, and cooked meats. Mix well.
- Carefully pour the egg yolk mixture into the egg whites and stir carefully. Tip: Stir in carefully so that the egg mixture remains foamy. This will help make the soufflés fluffier.
- Spray olive oil into 6 ramekins and then fill each with the soufflé mixture.
- Bake for 20-22 minutes until they are puffed up.
- Eat quickly before they deflate :-).
