Bacon Cheddar Cheese Souffle #BrunchWeek

This post is sponsored in conjunction with #BrunchWeek. I received product samples from sponsor companies to aid in the creation of the #Brunchweek recipes. All opinions are mine alone.

Bacon Cheddar Cheese Souffle is not nearly as difficult to make as you may think. Just a few ingredients and your oven does all of the work creating this perfect dish for brunch or breakfast.


It’s the last day of #BrunchWeek. Have you checked out all of the recipes myself and the other bloggers have shared with you this week? It’s an enormous collection of everything from egg dishes to desserts, drinks, and appetizers. If you’re hosting a brunch party soon I’m sure you could create an entire menu from what we’ve shared this week. And if you’re not hosting a brunch party soon, perhaps you should!

Let’s start off this post with another round of thank yous. First to Terri of Love and Confections and Christie of A Kitchen Hoor’s Adventures for doing all of the behind the scenes work in order to make this event a reality. Believe me, there is a lot that goes on behind the scenes to make these things run! And then to our sponsors; Dixie Crystals, Cabot Cheese, JoyJolt, Sweets & Treats, Torani, Sarcastic Cooking, Desserts for Two, Sweet Phi and The Little Ferraro Kitchen for offering up some of the best prizes you could ever win. The link to the Rafflecopter is at the end of this post and if you haven’t yet, this is your last chance to enter, so make sure you do it today!

A souffle is not nearly as hard of a dish as some people think it is to make. Sure, you need to white the egg whites into stiff peaks and then gently fold them into the rest of the mixture to get that nice rise on it while it’s baking, but a recipe only calls for a few ingredients and egg whites can be easily whipped to perfect in a stand mixer or with a hand mixer. (There’s no hand whisking egg whites for this girl, ever).

I chose to use the Bacon Cheddar Shredded Cheese from Cabot for this recipe because I was impressed with how strongly the bacon flavor comes through in the cheese. I thought that it might be pretty mild, but that is not the case at all. When I served one of these to Tom he asked me where the bacon was because he couldn’t find any in the ramekin.

Bacon Cheddar Cheese Souffle #BrunchWeek

Bacon Cheddar Cheese Souffle is not nearly as difficult to make as you may think. Just a few ingredients and your oven does all of the work creating this perfect dish for brunch or breakfast.

  • Author: NicholeL
  • Prep Time: 10 mins
  • Cook Time: 30 mins
  • Total Time: 40 mins
  • Yield: 4 1x
  • Category: Brunch, Breakfast
  • Method: Oven
Scale

Ingredients

  • 3 large eggs, separated
  • 2 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup whole milk
  • 2 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 cup Cabot Bacon Cheddar cheese, shredded
  • salt and pepper, to taste

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Spray 4 one-cup ramekins with cooking spray (or butter them).
  2. In the bowl of a stand mixer, add your egg whites and beat on medium-high speed until stiff peaks form. Set aside.
  3. In a large saucepan, melt the butter. Once melted, add in the flour and whisk until incorporated. Cook, stirring occasionally for 3 minutes.
  4. Slowly pour in the milk, whisking constantly until it is combined. Cook for 3-5 minutes more, stirring frequently until the mixture becomes a thick sauce.
  5. Remove from the heat and allow to cool for 5 minutes. Then stir in the Dijon mustard, shredded cheese, egg yolks, salt and pepper. Mix until just combined.
  6. Carefully fold the egg whites in the milk and cheese mixture, folding them in gently until no large white streaks of egg whites remain.
  7. Pour into the prepared ramekins, leaving at least 1 inch from the top so they don’t overflow when cooking.
  8. Place the ramekins onto a baking sheet to catch any overflow.
  9. Bake for 20 minutes, then remove from the oven and serve immediately.

Notes

Depending on your oven and the temperature in your kitchen, the souffles may deflate within a few minutes. There is nothing wrong with this and it doesn’t affect the texture or taste.
