Recipe Directions for Corn Souflee

  5. Butter a 2-qt. straight-side souffle dish. Sprinkle with remaining 1/4 cup shredded cheese. Set aside.

  6. In a large, clean bowl beat eeg whites until frothy. Add remaining 1/4 tsp. salt and beat until soft peaks form.

  7. Stir in 1/4 of the beaten egg whites into the corn mixture and combine thoroughly. Gently fold remaining egg whites into corn mixture. Pour mixture into prepared souffle dish. Set dish on a baking sheet and bake 20 minutes.

  8. Reduce oven temperature to 350 and continue baking until set, about 30 minutes.

  9. Serve souffle immediately.
