Chile Cheese Puff

Chile Chees Puff

I recently signed up to provide breakfast at church before Sunday School meets. It has been really cold here so I thought it would be nice to have something hot for one of the dishes and decided to make this breakfast casserole. The breakfast needed to be items I could make in advance since I have to have everything at the church by 9 AM in order to get everything set up before 9:30. So along with the Chile Cheese Puff, I made my banana bread, a plate of citrus fruit, and some chunks of banana in a bowl.

Citrus Platter


I made the casserole up the day before and refrigerated it until Sunday morning and baked it so I could head out the door to church right after I took it out of the oven. The citrus fruit and banana bread could be completely prepared the day before so that worked out well. When I got to church I put the casserole in a 200 degree oven to hold while I got everything set up. The only other food prep was cutting up the bananas and placing them in a bowl. I served the banana bread that I had made in a bundt pan on a pedestaled cake plate so it looked very attractive!
