50g plain flour

How to make it

Smoked Lincolnshire Poacher Soufflés not only look the business, but the cheese has an earthy and powerful taste that is nuttier than a mature cheddar with overtones of an aged alpine cheese. It takes this classic dish to a whole new level.

  • Preheat the over to 200°C /400°F/Gas 6
  • Grease a soufflé dish, then add a little flour and tap around covering the dish
  • In a saucepan melt the butter
  • Add the flour and mix for a few minutes until the roux has a little colour
  • Begin adding the milk little by little, ensuring the mixture becomes smooth before adding more milk
  • Bring the mixture to the boil then remove from the heat and let cool
  • In a separate bowl mix the egg yolks and cheese
  • Season with nutmeg, pepper and salt
  • In another bowl whisk the egg whites until they are moderately stiff
  • Ensuring the roux is cooled enough, begin adding the cheese and egg mix, mixing with a metal spoon
  • Once all combined, fold in the egg whites gently
  • Spoon the batter into the soufflé dishes
  • Cook for around 20-25 minutes – resist the urge to open the oven door until ready otherwise it will collapse!
