Granes Ham and Cheese Souffle

“The smell from this souffle, as it is baking, permeates the whole 20-room inn. By the time it’s ready to serve, everyone is at their table – fork in hand. It makes such a pretty dish we have had guests run back upstairs to get their cameras to take pictures of it!” –Granes Fairhaven Inn, Bath, Maine
