Cheddar Bacon Souffle

Cheddar Bacon Souffle

(4 servings)    Printable Version
  • 2 cups quality aged cheddar cheese - shredded
  • 5 large eggs - separated
  • 6 or 8 slices bacon - cooked and crumbled
  • 3 Tablespoons butter
  • 3 Tablespoons flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
Melt butter in a medium saucepan. Blend in flour, mustard and salt. Gradually stir in milk. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly until mixture comes to a boil and thickens. Remove from heat.

Add cheese and stir until melted. Beat egg yolks well. Stir in a small amount of cheese mixture into yolks; add yolk mixture to saucepan and blend thoroughly. Stir in bacon. Beat egg whites until stiff, but not dry. Stir a large spoonful of egg whites into cheese sauce. Fold in remaining egg whites. Turn into a greased souffle dish measuring about 8" across and 3 1/2" deep.

Bake in preheated oven at 325 for 45 to 50 minutes. Serve immediately.

There's a lot of cheese and bacon in this recipe so it isn't a real healthy souffle, but it is a real delicious one. You can replace the shredded Cheddar with any favorite cheese. You can also replace the bacon with cooked and crumbled breakfast sausage.

Mr Breakfast would like to thank BethH for this recipe.

Obsessed with this recipe and keep coming back. Thank you for my favorite. Mine didn't fall. Big hit compared to dry dense casseroles.
