Note 1: For the egg mixture: Separate the eggs and whip the whites until slightly stiff. Blend together the egg yolks, flour and milk and fold into the beaten egg whites. This creates a much fluffier casserole.

Note 2: What you’ll really love about this casserole is just how much better it is when you reheat it the next day.

Note 3: American cheeses can be bought bij L’amuse in Amsterdam and IJmuiden.
