I hope you guys enjoy your Halloween. If you're going trick-or-treating, be sure to stay safe! And remember, don't overindulge on candy (oh, and chocolate too!).
Anyway, on the topic of food, we made Cheese Soufflé in class the other day. I admit, I personally don't like soufflé but it looked delicious. There were people in my class that like this soufflé.
So, here's the recipe!
- 1/4 tsp dry mustard
- 1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
- 1/2 cup shredded Swiss cheese
- 5 egg yolks, slightly beaten
- 5 egg whites
- 2 Tbsp butter or margarine
- 1/4 tsp cream of tartar
- 3 Tbsp flour
- 1/8 tsp salt
- 1 1/4 cup milk
- Pinch of red cayenne pepper
- Preheat oven to 375°F.
- Prepare soufflé dish. Butter bottom and sides of a soufflé dish. Coat with a thorough dusting of flour or dry grated cheese (for example, parmesan cheese).
- In a medium saucepan over medium heat, melt butter. Blend in flour and salt; cook 1 minute to make a blonde roux. Add milk slowly whisking constantly to prevent lumps.
- Increase heat to medium high and whisk constantly until white sauce is thickened. Add cheeses, cayenne pepper and dry mustard. Remove sauce from heat.
- Gradually add a small amount (3 tbsp) of hot cheese mixture to egg yolks (this is called “tempering”); stir well; add egg yolk mixture back to cheese sauce in pan. Cover and set aside.
- Beat egg whites with cream of tartar to stiff peak stage. Gently fold 1/4 into cheese mixture. Add the cheese mixture gently into the bowl with the egg whites and gently fold to combine.
- Pour into the prepared dish. Bake for 40 to 45 minutes or until skewer inserted comes out clean.
Have a safe and happy Halloween!
