From SAND ROCK FARM BED & BREAKFAST
Ingredients:
3 Tbsp butter
1/4 cup dry breadcrumbs
3 Tbsp cake flour
1 cup milk
10 oz. goat cheese
3 egg yolks
Salt and Pepper to taste
1 cup egg whites (about 7)

Directions:

  • Preheat oven 325
  • Butter 12 5-ounce ramekins or standard muffin tin, fill with breadcrumbs and turn out.
  • Melt 3 Tbsp butter in stainless saucepan over medium heat. Whisking constantly, add flour.
  • Whisk in the milk and cook over low heat for about 3 minutes, until mixture has thickened like a thin pudding.
  • Crumble 3/4 of the goat cheese into a large bowl, reserving the remainder. Pour the hot milk mixture over the cheese, and mix well. Add the egg yolks and mix; season with salt and pepper.
  • Using an electric mixer, beat the egg whites until stiff peaks form. Fold 1/2 whites onto the cheese to lighten, then fold in remaining whites.
  • Divide 1/2 of the soufflé mixture among the ramekins. Crumble the remaining goat cheese among the ramekins, then top with the remaining soufflé mixture.
  • Place the ramekins in a large baking pan and pour in boiling water to come 1/2 way up the ramekins. Bake for 25 minutes or until the soufflés are golden.
  • Remove from the oven and let stand, still in the water for 15 min.
  • Using a towel to hold the ramekins, run a knife around the inside rim to loosen. Turn out soufflés onto baking sheet. The soufflés may be help at room temp fro up to 6 hours before the final baking or individually wrapped and refrigerated for 3 days.
