This cheese souffle recipe seems to be a little difficult but once
you break it down into steps and taste it you'll see it isn't that
hard to make and well worth the effort. If you have small ramekin
dishes these work great for little individual sizes for each family
member. Otherwise prepare one in a large round dish for the whole

Making a Souffle
1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon mustard
Dash of cayenne pepper
1 cup milk
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
3 eggs, separated
1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
Step 2: In a
saucepan melt butter. Whisk in flour, salt, mustard and cayenne
pepper. Stir constantly on medium-low heat until well blended. Whisk
in 1 cup milk until mixture is smooth and no longer has lumps. Bring
to a boil and continue stirring. Add shredded cheese and cook until
melted. Set aside.
Step 3: In two
separate bowls, add egg whites in one bowl and egg yolks in another.
Beat egg whites and cream of tartar until stiff peaks form. This is
called making a meringue.
Step 4: In
separate bowl, beat 3 egg yolks for several minutes. Stir egg yolks
into cheese mixture.
Step 5: Add a small
amount, about ¼ of the egg whites to the cheese mixture. Stir
together. Pour cheese mixture slowly into remaining egg whites.
Step 6: Pour into
greased dish. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 45-55 minutes. Insert a
knife in the center of the soufflé and it should come out clean.
