Montgomery Cheddar Cheese Souffle

Montgomery Cheddar Cheese Souffle


This is the perfect dish to make with a mature, good quality Cheddar; we've chosen Montgomery Cheddar. You can use any cheese and in fact blue cheeses work particularly well.

1. Butter four ramekins with soft butter and freeze – repeat three times to ensure a good coating. Coat the inside of each ramekin with breadcrumbs and walnuts mixed together.

2. Melt butter in saucepan and add flour stirring until the mixture becomes a light coloured roux.

3. Still stirring, gradually add the milk and then add the grated Montgomery Cheddar cheese.

4. Pour this mixture into a bowl and beat in the egg yolks. Season with salt and pepper.

5. Whisk the eggs whites to soft peaks and add a little lemon juice. Carefully fold the egg whites into the mixture.

6. Gently pour the soufflé mixture into each ramekin. Smooth with a spatula and place in baking tray filled with boiling water.

7. Place in a preheated oven at 180 degrees c and bake for 15-20 minutes until golden brown. Serve immediately with a green salad.
