Blue Cheese Souffle

It's seems I have been so busy since moving to the Bay area in the spring for the new job that it's been really difficult to post on a regular basis. I'm feeling a bit embarrassed by how infrequent I've been. I have still tried to make time to enjoy some time in the kitchen though, and to enjoy the fruits of my labor. I recently attempted my very first souffle. While I've heard stories of how challenging a souffle can be, I am looking forward to making many more in the future.

This Blue Cheese Souffle from the Barefoot Contessa was surprising easily and we absolutely loved the way it turned out. If you're a fan of blue cheese, you must really give this souffle a try. I just loved the taste of the blue cheese with the somewhat crunchy and tangy Parmesan and butter coating on the sides of it. The souffle was excellent paired with a salad of fresh mixed greens. Since I was unsure of exactly how to serve it I ended up deflating it, but have since learned from our Betty Crocker cookbook how a souffle should be separated instead of spooned out. It was so enjoyable I will look forward to making this souffle again, but I'll probably first attempt a chocolate one!

  1. Ok, a souffle is just one of the best things around, and it sounds fantastic with blue cheese! What a great menu--this with a nice salad would be perfect! Glad to hear you have been doing some more baking like this--pursuing the chocolate version next sounds like a great plan.
