What is muenster cheese?

For the past three months, I've been trying to find the world's best WW breakfast casserole.

I haven't found it yet.

But this morning's attempt wasn't too bad. In fact, what ended up as more of a souffle, it was pretty tasty and very filling. Using an altered recipe from Pinterest, this was a fairly easy six point meal.

It's rated fairly easy due to one small issue.

Muenster cheese.

What in the heck is muenster cheese?

Thank goodness for Google because I had no idea. While shopping at Walmart for the ingredients to make the casserole/souffle, I drug poor AM all over the SuperCenter trying to find this special cheese. It was nowhere to be found. After finally resorting to using the iPhone to find a Google image, a helpful associate located the German cheese in the fancy cheese section at the front of the deli. Problem solved.

So, this morning before Mass, I decided to suprise JJ with the casserole/souffle for breakfast.

I had no idea it was going to take me almost an hour to prepare, cook and serve it.

And, while it was good, I'm not sure I'd invest the time again.

For me, the search continues for the world's best breakfast casserole.

For you, here's the recipe so you can make up your own mind.

6 eggs
1 1/4 cup Eggbeaters
1 ½ slices bread (torn into pieces with sides removed)
6 ounces muenster cheese, cut into cubes
4 stalks of green onions, chopped
1 cup of milk
¼ cup of fresh cilantro leaves
¼ cup of fresh parsley leaves
A dash of salt
A dash of ground pepper
1/3 cup of water

Preheat your oven to 400 degrees
Coat an 8X8 baking dish with cooking spray
In a bowl, crumb the bread and soak in milk
Stir together the eggs and Eggbeaters and add them to the milk/bread mixture
Also add the salt, pepper and water
Chop onions, cheese, cilantro and parsley leaves in the food processor
Pour the egg mixture into skillet and cook while stirring until soft, not set completely
Scoop half portion of egg mixture to the baking dish, sprinkle with cheese mixture and cover with the remaining half of egg mixture
Bring to room temperature before baking for up to 25 minutes

It makes six servings, each six WW points plus.
