Recipe Ingredients for Cheese Souffle

4 tablespoons unsalted butter, plus softened butter for brushing
1/4 cup freshly grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese
6 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 1/2 cups milk
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon cayenne
6 large eggs, separated
8 ounces swiss cheese, coarse shredded (2 packed cups)
1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar

Recipe Directions for Cheese Souffle

  1. Preheat the oven to 400° and brush six ramekins with butter. Lightly coat with 2 tablespoons of the Parmigiano-Reggiano and set on a baking sheet.

  2. In a medium saucepan, melt the 4 tablespoons of butter. Whisk in flour and cook over moderate heat for 1 minute. Whisk in the milk and cook over moderately low heat until smooth and very thick, about 2 minutes. Stir in the salt and cayenne. Off the heat, whisk in the egg yolks. Let cool slightly. Transfer to a large bowl and stir in the Gruyère.

  3. In a large bowl, using an electric mixer, beat the egg whites with the cream of tartar at medium-high speed until frothy. Increase the speed to high and beat until firm peaks form. With a rubber spatula, fold the egg whites into the soufflé base until no streaks of white remain.

  4. Spoon the soufflé mixture into the ramekins, filling them to » inch below the rim. Run your thumb inside the rim of each ramekin to help the soufflés rise evenly. Sprinkle the remaining Parmigiano-Reggiano on top and bake in the bottom third of the oven until the soufflés are puffed and golden brown, about 20 minutes. Serve immediately.
