  • Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Sprinkle flour over top, and cook, whisking, for 1 1/2 minutes. Add milk, cheese, nutmeg, salt, and pepper. Cook, whisking, until thickened, about 3 minutes. Remove from heat. Whisk in yolks.

  • Beat egg whites until stiff peaks form. Gently fold cheese mixture into whites. Divide among souffle dishes, filling to 1 inch from top. Place on a baking sheet, and bake until puffed and golden, 12 to 15 minutes. Serve immediately.

Cook's Notes

Soft goat cheese can be substituted for aged; be sure to reduce the amount of salt to 3/4 teaspoon.

This is delicious and very easy to make. The proportions are accurate and do not need "tweaking." The souffle also holds up surprisingly well as leftovers. I look forward to making this again.

I loved this! I had soft goat cheese so I would omit the salt, so they are not too salty. Relatively easy to make and quick.
