Cheddar and Chive Souffle (Like an Omelet)
I made this the other night and my hubby just loved it! Kind of like a gooey cheesy omelet, but more fluffy :)
Cheddar-Chive Soufflé Submitted by Christi B.
3 tablespoons plus 1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese 1 1/2 cups milk 1/4 cup all-purpose flour 1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese (6 ounces) 1 1/2 teaspoons Dijon mustard 1/2 teaspoon salt 1/4 cup snipped fresh chives 5 eggs, separated into yolks and whites 1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
1. Heat oven to 400F. Coat 10-cup soufflé dish with cooking spray. Coat with the 3 tablespoons Parmesan. 2. Whisk milk and flour in saucepan. Bring to simmering over medium-high heat, whisking occasionally, until thickened, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat. Whisk in remaining 1/3 cup Parmesan, cheddar, mustard, salt and chives. 3. Whisk small amount of milk mixture into yolks in bowl. Whisk in almost half of milk mixture; whisk yolk mixture into milk mixture in saucepan. Pour into large bowl. 4. In clean bowl, beat whites and cream of tartar on medium until foamy. Increase to high; beat until stiff peaks. Fold half of whites into yolk mixture; fold in remaining whites. Scrape into prepared dish; smooth top. To make _top hat_ on soufflé, hold spoon upright and with back side of tip, make circle around mixture, 1 inch from edge of pan. 5. Place soufflé in 400F oven; reduce temperature to 375F. Bake in 375F oven 30 to 35 minutes, until lightly golden, puffy and lightly set in center. Serve immediately. Makes 8 servings.
