Easy Cheese Souffle - T & T

Alix had asked about an easy souffle. This was my first that I made years ago, and it came out really well.

EASY CHEESE SOUFFLE

1 can (10.5 oz) condensed Cheddar Cheese Soup, undiluted
1 cup Sharp Cheddar Cheese, shredded
1/8 tsp ground nutmeg (or cayenne?) (Don't recall which I used, pick the one you like)
6 eggs, separated

Bring eggs to room temp before beating; use clean bowl & beaters, even a small amount of fat or yolk will inhibit beating.

In saucepan, over low heat, combine soup, cheese & nutmeg. Heat till cheese melts, stirring occasionally; remove from heat. In large bowl, with mixer at High, beat egg whites until stiff peaks form; set aside.

In small bowl with mixer at High, beat egg yolks till thick & lemon colored. Gradually stir in soup mixture, fold into egg whites. Pour into ungreased 2-qt casserole or souffle dish. Bake at 300 for 1 hour or until souffle is lightly browned.

Here are some variations, I have yet to try.

Soup - Cream of Asparagus, Cheese - Swiss, Seasoning 1/8 tsp ground nutmeg

Soup - Tomato, Cheese - American, Seasoning - 1/4 tsp marjoram leaves, crushed

Soup - Cream of Chicken, Cheese - Jarlsberg, Seasoning - 2 tbls fresh parsley

A friend of mine always makes Cheese Souffle for her daughter's birthday at her request. I asked for her recipe - she said, just look in the Betty Crocker cookbook. She's used it for years. I keep thinking I will look it up, but that is the one cookbook I have and can't find.

Hi licia. Actually this is from a very old Campbell's soup mix n match recipe book. Perhaps the 1970's? It is very easy. Hope you will give it a try.

Hey, Sannon, that sounds good too. I'm curious about a tomato souffle, as I've never seen a recipe or tried it. Hope you like it.

cristal, good idea. Think you could mix n match cheeses and seasonings of choice, and come up with a whole different taste. For a three ingredient recipe, it's pretty surprising, IMO.

Ooops, I thought about trying the new Sargento shredded cheeses I saw advertised. I'll look for the site. If I remember the cheese blends include sun dried tomatoes?, etc. Worth experimenting for such an easy dish.

Found it. They're call Bistro Blends.

Sargento® Bistro™ Blends
Mozzarella with Sun-Dried Tomatoes & Basil New!
Mozzarella & Asiago with Roasted Garlic New!
Cheddar & Monterey Jack with Tomato & Jalapeno Peppers

I've used the Bistro Blends in various recipes and love them. I will try some of the souffle versions soon. Thanks.
