Feisty Foodie Sara is with us as always in the last hour today and it is all about eggs. We look at some interesting facts about the humble egg and also Sara shares a recipe for Cheese Souffle.


  • 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons freshly grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/4 cups heavy cream
  • 4 large eggs, separated, plus 3 large egg whites
  • 3 tablespoons dry sherry
  • 6 ounces Gruyère cheese, shredded (2 packed cups)
  • 2 tablespoons sour cream
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
  1. Preheat the oven to 375°. Butter a 1 1/2-quart soufflé dish and coat it with 2 tablespoons of the Parmigiano.
  2. In a medium saucepan, melt the butter. Stir in the flour to make a paste. Gradually whisk in the cream and bring to a boil over moderate heat, whisking. Reduce the heat to low and cook, whisking, until very thick, 3 minutes. Transfer the base to a large bowl; let cool. Stir in the egg yolks, sherry, Gruyère, sour cream, salt, Dijon mustard, dry mustard, cayenne and the remaining 1/4 cup of Parmigiano.
  3. Put the 7 egg whites in a large stainless steel bowl. Add the cream of tartar. Using an electric mixer, beat the whites until firm peaks form. Fold one-third of the whites into the soufflé base to lighten it, then fold in the remaining whites until no streaks remain.
  4. Scrape the mixture into the prepared dish and fill the ramekins to 1/2-inch from the top. Run your thumb around the inside rim of the dish to wipe away any crumbs. Bake for about 35 minutes, until the soufflé is golden brown and puffed. Serve right away.

TIP:  Cover with plastic wrap ramekins and place into the freezer for 5 minutes.
