In honor of the latest episode of Master Chef, I ventured out into the culinary world and attempted the ever-classy souffle. Oh, Chef Ramsay, how you challenge me as a home cook! 

     Nevertheless, this recipe was a cinch, as I adapted it from one formulated by Jim Tuttle of Mount Historic Inn via Steamy Kitchen. The only change I made to the recipe was the kind of cheese. Instead of cheddar, I chose a gouda made by my favorite raw milk dairy down the road. DELISH!

This recipe is easy - even fool-proof! Enjoy!

--- Jenny

1 Tbsp. soft butter
4 oz. grated cheddar cheese
7 large eggs
4 oz. sour cream
1/3 c. whole milk
2 tsp. minced fresh thyme leaves
generous grating of fresh nutmeg
pinch cayenne pepper
1/2 tsp. salt

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  Coat the bottom and sides of a small souffle dish with the softened butter.  Sprinkle the cheese in the bottom of the dish.
Add remaining ingredients to the bowl of a blender.  Blend for 30 seconds, then pour egg mixture into the souffle dish.  Bake for 55-60 minutes or until the souffle is golden brown and puffy.  (Watch out! The souffle will begin to fall about 45 seconds after taking it from the oven - Bon Apetit!)

I am definitely going to have to try this on my hubs... he loves eggs and this may be the perfect compromise to the fact that i HATE quiche and he loves it! I think it would be really good with smoked gouda too!
