​​No need for the technique of a highly skilled chef, nor need for an hour of preparation. Just 15 minutes and done, pop it in the oven!


Ingredients

Serves 4

  • 500 ml milk

  • 4 eggs, separated

  • 60 g butter

  • 50 g flour

  • 125 g cheese (Gruyere, Cheddar, Gouda, Provolone), grated

  • 1 pinch of nutmeg

  • salt and pepper



Method


​​​​1. Preheat oven to 180°C (355°F). Generously butter and lightly flour 4x15cm (or 6x10cm) soufflé dishes (heatproof porcelain dishes).

2. In a saucepan, over a medium heat, melt the butter. Stir in the flour and mix well, until the butter is completely absorbed. Gradually, add the milk stirring continuously to make a smooth, very thick sauce. Remove from heat and add the salt, pepper and nutmeg. Allow to slightly cool, about 1 minute.


3. Add the egg yolks one at a time, stirring well after each addition. Add the grated cheese, and stir continuously. Set aside.

4. Beat the egg whites until peaks form. Gently, add them to your yolk mixture, until just incorporated into a light yellow foam; without losing too much air.


5. Divide between the soufflé dishes, and fill it up three-quarters full.


6. Place on the baking sheet and bake for 20-25 minutes until the top is puffed and golden-brown, and center moves only slightly when dish is shaken gently. Do not open oven door during the bake. Serve immediately.


Enjoy!
