Happy Halloween and Cheese Soufflé Recipe

Happy Halloween everyone!

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 
  1. Preheat oven to 375°F.
  2. 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). 
  3. 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.  
  4. Increase heat to medium high and whisk constantly until white sauce is thickened.  Add cheeses, cayenne pepper and dry mus­tard. Remove sauce from heat.
  5.  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.
  6. 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.
  7. Pour into the prepared dish. Bake for 40 to 45 minutes or until skewer inserted comes out clean.  
I hope you guys enjoy this soufflé. 

Have a safe and happy Halloween!
