Souffle and Plantain, again?

Cheese Onion Souffle
1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup flour
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. onion seasoning
1/4 tsp. ground pepper
1 cup milk
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
2 tbsp. grated parmessan cheese
4 eggs, separated
1/4 tsp. cream of tartar
Grease the bottoms of 8 ramekins.
Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees F.
In a saucepan, melt butter over low heat.
Mix flour, salt, onion and pepper and add to butter to make a roux.
Add 1 cup of milk. Beat well.
To temper and prevent curdling, slowly pour a third of the warm milk mixture into beaten egg yolk while whisking continuously.
Pour yolk mixture to the saucepan and whisk up to a smooth paste consistency.
In another bowl, whisk egg-whites and cream of tartar until stiff peaks form.
Gently fold in the yolk mixture to the egg whites.
Fold in the cheeses.
Divide mixture into greased ramekins arranged on a jelly roll pan.
Bake for 40 minutes or until a toothpick, when inserted at the center of the souffle, comes out clean.
Let cool for 5 minutes and serve.

Thank you for visiting at my place. I am so sorry to hear of your recent loss. All too often, it seems, many loved ones leave this world much too soon, certainly sooner than they and we ever imagined possible. How much better for all of us if we could just comfortably embrace the discussion of dying as a part of our life process.
I do wish you well in the future before you.

Your receipes do sound quite tasty. Congratulations to your godson.

Thanks for sharing these recipes. So those souffle bowls I see are called ramekins. I learned something new today. :)

Hi Princess, so glad the testing and all is over for you! Congratulations to your God son. I wish him well on his future pursuits. Well I turned our a/c on and I'm feeling much better already. I just knew it was the windows being opened that was feeding my allergies. Now to get some decent sleep, lol. Lots of ~hugs~

Yay! Thanks so much for this recipe. I've always wanted to make individual ones.

I'm definitely going to give it a try. I'm sure your students put me to shame. :)
