Master These Recipes for Foods You’re Too Intimidated to Cook



Cheese Souffle

Let's start with that souffle. The reassuring thing about souffle is, if it fails, you are joining a long line of cooks, even seasoned professionals, who fail at souffles once in a while. This is one you definitely don't want to try for the first time on a special occasion. 

  • Butter, room temperature, for greasing the souffle
  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 3 tablespoons flour
  • 1 teaspoon dry mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 1/3 cups milk, hot
  • 4 large egg yolks
  • 6 ounces sharp Cheddar
  • 5 egg whites plus 1 tablespoon water
  • 1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar

Use room temperature butter to grease an 8-inch souffle mold. Add the grated Parmesan and roll around the mold to cover the sides. Cover with plastic wrap and place into the freezer for 5 minutes.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

In a small saucepan, heat the butter. Bring to a gentle boil until a white foam forms on top.

In a separate bowl, combine the flour, dry mustard, garlic powder, and kosher salt. Whisk this mixture into the melted butter. Cook for 2 minutes.

Whisk in the hot milk and turn the heat to high. Once the mixture reaches a boil, remove from the heat.

In a separate bowl, beat the egg yolks to a creamy consistency. Slowly pour the yolks into the milk mixture in a slow, steady stream, constantly whisking. Remove from the heat and add the cheese. Whisk until incorporated.

In a separate bowl, using a hand mixer, whip the egg whites and cream of tartar until glossy and firm. Add 1/4 of the mixture to the base. Continue to add the whites by thirds, folding very gently.

Pour the mixture into the souffle. Fill the souffle to 1/2-inch from the top. Place on an aluminum pie pan. Bake in the oven for 35 minutes.
