French Toast Souffle

French Toast Souffle
YIELDS
6 servings

Instead of serving the regular breakfast sausage, try chorizo. The soufflés will rise evenly if you use a pastry brush to butter the inside sides of the moulds and you use vertical strokes from the bottom to the top all the way around. Regular white bread can be used in place of the Challah.
