Soufflé au Fromage

I wanted to try something French! Gotta say, it was a complete success!

This is a classic French recipe that can be served for dinner with a salad or for breakfast! Make sure that your family or guests are all ready to eat because once the souffle comes out of the oven, it should be ready to eat as it will deflate!!

2 1/2 oz swiss cheese
1 oz butter + some for greasing the souffle dish
3/4 oz plain flour
9 fl oz milk
4 eggs
salt, pepper & grated nutmeg

~ Preheat the oven to 350
1. Separate the egg whites from yolk and beat the whites with an electric mixer until they get thickly.

2. Prepare the béchamel (white sauce) :
-melt the butter in a saucepan, medium heat
-pour the flour on it while stirring with a wooden spoon until well blended.

-Reduce the heat, start pouring a bit of milk and gently stir until it is incorporated. (pour all the milk). Never stop stirring.

-Continue about 10 minutes until the béchamel is ready (it must get thick).

3. Add enough nutmeg, salt & pepper, and remove from fire.
4. Add the grated cheese, then the yolks

5.Turn vigourously to obtain a homogeneous mixture.
6. Gently incorporate the egg whites with a rubber spatula.

7. Pour the mixture equally into the 4 soufflé dishes, fill them about 3/4

8. Bake in oven for about 25 minutes, the soufflés must rise and get golden brown.

Do not open oven door for they would deflate.
