Ingredients for cheese sandwich souffle:
* 8 slices homemade-style white bread, 3 to 4 inches square, crusts removed

* 2 ounces prosciutto or boiled ham, thinly sliced, optional
* 3 large eggs
* 2 cups whole milk
* 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
Lightly butter an 8-inch square baking dish and arrange 4 slices of the bread flat on the bottom. Cover each with equal amounts of cheese and ham, if desired. Top with the remaining bread.
Beat the eggs lightly in a small bowl and pour in the milk. Season with the salt and blend well. Pour over the sandwiches, cover and refrigerate for 1 hour.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Bake the sandwiches, uncovered, until lightly browned around the edges and set in the center, 40 to 45 minutes. Serve hot.
