Death by Souffle
I found a recipe and altered it to work for me. I make it in a blender and it yields 8 individual Souffle which freeze, refrigerate and reheat great. I have a problem finding breakfast that work for me and this is amazing. I added 1/2 cup bacon bits, sundried tomatoes and goat cheese to the last ones and they were amazing.
These are amazing without any extra items.
Death by Soufflé
1/2 cup heavy cream
1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
1/2 teaspoon prepared mustard
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
2 T olive oil
1 T Mediterranean spices/Italian
8 ounces extra sharp cheddar cheese, cut into about 1 inch pieces
4 ounces of another cheese (optional)
8 ounces cream cheese, cut into about 1 inch pieces
Dust bottom of disposable dishes with flax seed meal (optional)
1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Butter large soufflé dish or just dust 8 – 4 inch round disposable dishes with flax seed meal.
2. Add to the blender the eggs, cream, Parmesan, mustard, salt and pepper. Blend until mixed well and smooth. Add Mediterranean spices at the end. I added a couple tablespoons of olive oil.
3. With the blender running, add the cream cheese through the hole in the lid, one chunk at a time until all are chopped up and the mixture is thick. Add the cheddar*in the same manner. (Note – the mixture. will be very thick at this time; it may be necessary to stop the blender and stir the mixture around with a spatula to fully incorporate the cheeses.
4. Once all of the cheddar and cream cheese is fully incorporated, run the blender for 5 more seconds, just to get a little air in the mixture. You can stir in the bacon bits or stir in spinach (small items) etc at this point. I added 1 cup of bacon bits.
5. Pour the mixture into the buttered souffle dishes or disposable dishes. Or drizzle olive oil in the bottom of dishes and then pour in mix. 8 disposable 4 inch round dishes works. Additional optional items to add after potted into cups: bacon, sundried tomatoes and goat cheese; bacon, chunks of gouda and artichokes and many others. Get creative. Don't put the big pieces in the blender. Place them in the poured Souffle and use a spoon to cover with Souffle batter.
6. Bake the souffle for 40-50 minutes depending upon your preference. 30-40 for individual dishes. The original recipe says that either you can bake the souffle for 40 minutes and use the “liquid center as a sauce to spoon over the rest. of the souffle”, or you can just do what I do and bake it for 50 minutes to get a nice firm souffle all the way through. The souffle will have a lovely brown top. These freeze great and reheat in approximately 1:10 in microwave if defrosted. 2:00 minutes if frozen. You will see them puff back up.
