Tarragon and Dill Souffle

Every summer I get together with some gals from school for brunch and we always have this delicious breakfast casserole. Why mess with a good thing?  It's always good.  Delicious, in fact.  I especially love when the edges get a little browned and crisp.  Added bonus: it's full of protein.  Also, I should note that I don't typically love dill, but in this it is quite tasty.  So don't let the dill scare you away if you don't love it.  I like to make this during the school year on the weekend and then eat it for breakfast or lunch throughout the week since it reheats nicely. 

Thanks to my co-worker and friend, Colleen for this delicious recipe!  It's a keeper, folks.  You're welcome.
