Ham and Cheese Souffle

What, I am proposing is a savory souffle, with toast bread, ham, cheese, milk and eggs.
Soufflé is a kind of cake savory or sweet. It is delicious, fluffy and airy. Each bite is a light and tasteful delight.
Successful combination, delicious results, too many calories, so make sure to eat a small amount even if it's very delicious.
The word soufflé is the past participle of the French verb souffler, which means among other things puff, blow, breathe etc.
