Colman’s Fantasy Cheese Soufflé

Prep Time: 35 min.
Cook Time: 25 min.


Butter, room temperature, for greasing the souffle
2T. grated Parmesean
3 T. butter
3 T. flour
2 tsp. Colman’s Dry Mustard Powder
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1/8 tsp. kosher salt
1 1/3 cups milk, hot
4 large egg yolks
6 ounces sharp cheddar cheese

5 egg whites plus 1 tablespoon water
1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar

Use room temperature butter to grease an 8-inch souffle mold. Add the grated Parmesan and roll around the mold to cover the sides. Cover with plastic wrap and place into the freezer for 5 minutes.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
In a small saucepan, heat the butter. Allow all of the water to cook out.
In a separate bowl combine the flour, Colman’s Dry Mustard, garlic powder, and kosher salt. Whisk this mixture into the melted butter. Cook for 2 minutes.

Whisk in the hot milk and turn the heat to high. Once the mixture reaches a boil, remove from the heat.
In a separate bowl, beat the egg yolks to a creamy consistency. Temper the yolks by adding 1/3 of milk mixture, constantly whisking. Add second 1/3, whisking constantly, add the final 1/3, whisking. Add the cheese. Whisk until incorporated to form the soufflé base.
In a separate bowl, using a hand mixer, whip the egg whites and cream of tartar until glossy and firm. Stif 1/4 of the mixture into the base to lighten it. Continue to add the remaining whites by thirds, folding very gently.
Pour the mixture into the soufflé. Fill the soufflé to 1/2-inch from the top. Place on a baking sheet. Bake in the oven for 35 minutes.
