French in a Flash: Easy Pumpkin-Maple Breakfast Soufflés

Made this tonight and it was delicious, especially with the extra maple syrup.

One problem I had, however, was that with a couple of the souffles there was a thin layer of cooked egg on the bottom. Is there a reason this would happen or a way I can prevent this in the future?

BEST of Chicago, Madison, Ann Arbor, South Bend, West Lafeyette

Thank you all so much! I really appreciate the suggestions! To respond to any questions, in general, I do not have a budget persay, but since the trip is about a week and that means buying atleast 3 meals a day for four people, I'm not looking for anything too extravagent. Though the menus at all the places you guys have suggested that i have explored thus far look amazing, I would love some more non-bar based choices if possible. In each city I do not know exactly where I will be staying, so anything in the general area is good. I dont believe transportation should be a huge issue either.
For anyone who is curious, so far the DEFFINITE locations i will be visting are Zingerman's in Ann Arbor, The Icon and Brick House BBQ in Madison, Frontera in Chicago, and Uptown Kitchen in South Bend. I still have a few of the places you all have so kindly suggested to explore a little closer, but if you have any more suggests of restaurants or even specific dishes to try at any of these locations please keep them comming!

and sorry @Winternutt for making you home sick! lol

Thank you all again!
