Expert Tips

  • Beaten egg yolks lightened with beaten egg whites form the airy texture of a baked soufflé. Always serve a baked soufflé right from the oven because its regal airiness only last a few moments. The hot air trapped inside the soufflé begins to escape and the soufflé begins to deflate as soon as it's removed from the oven.
  • Gouda cheese can be used in place of the sharp Cheddar in this soufflé.
  • Serve this soufflé with a spinach salad tossed with poppy seed dressing and fresh strawberries and slices of French bread.
