  1. Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C). This ensures your soufflé gets a nice rise.
  2. Make the base: In a saucepan, whisk together the milk and flour over high heat. Keep stirring until the mixture thickens significantly, resembling stiff icing (about 4 minutes). Remove from heat.
  3. Incorporate the yolks: Slowly whisk in the beaten egg yolks one at a time. Once combined, add the salt, shredded cheese, and Tabasco (if using) to create the flavorful base of your soufflé.
  4. Whip it good!: Using a mixer, beat the egg whites at high speed for about 3 minutes until they form stiff peaks. These are the magic air bubbles that will make your soufflé rise!
  5. Gently fold in the whites: Take your time with this step. Add the egg whites to the base in four batches. Gently fold each portion with a rubber spatula, maintaining as much air as possible. Overmixing can deflate the soufflé.
  6. Prepare your baking dish: Generously grease an 8-cup soufflé dish (around 7.5 inches in diameter and 3.25 inches deep) with softened butter. Coat the buttered surface with grated Parmesan cheese for extra flavor and stability.
  7. Pour and bake: Carefully pour the soufflé batter into the prepared dish. You can bake it immediately, or here’s the magic part: cover it with plastic wrap and let it sit at room temperature for up to 3 hours! This flexibility allows you to prepare the soufflé in advance without compromising its rise.
  8. Baking time! When you’re ready to serve, bake the covered soufflé for 30 minutes at 400°F (200°C). Important tip: Don’t peek! Opening the oven door can cause the soufflé to deflate.

Related FAQs

Can I use a different type of cheese?

Absolutely! Gruyère is a classic choice, but you can experiment with other favorites like Emmental, Swiss, or even a cheddar blend. Just keep in mind that the melting properties and overall flavor may vary slightly.

What if I don’t have a mixer?

While a mixer helps achieve stiff egg whites quickly, you can definitely whip them by hand with a whisk. It will take some extra elbow grease, but with patience, you can still get the job done

My soufflé didn’t rise that much. What happened?

There could be a few reasons:
Under-whipped egg whites: Ensure your egg whites reach stiff peaks for maximum lift.
Overmixing the batter: Folding in the whites too vigorously can deflate the air bubbles.
Oven temperature fluctuations: Double-check that your oven is preheated to the correct temperature and avoid opening the door during baking.
Leaking dish: Make sure your baking dish is well-greased to prevent the batter from sticking and causing deflation.

Can I reheat leftover soufflé?

Soufflés are best enjoyed fresh out of the oven for their optimal texture. However, if you have leftovers, you can store them in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to a day. Reheating won’t recapture the original airy glory, but you can try to salvage it by incorporating it into another dish like scrambled eggs or a quiche.

How long can I let the soufflé sit before baking?

The beauty of this recipe is its flexibility! You can cover the prepared soufflé with plastic wrap and let it sit at room temperature for up to 3 hours before baking. This allows you to make it ahead of time for a stress-free presentation.
