|1 hour 4 min.||30 min.||1 hour 34 min.|
|1||Separate the whites and yolks of 6 eggs.
Put the whites into a food mixer bowl.
|2||Bring 250 ml whole milk to the boil with 1 pinch grated nutmeg in a pan. Take off the heat as soon as it boils.||10 min.|
|3||Melt 50 g butter in another pan over low heat.||5 min.|
|4||Next add 50 g flour all at once, salt and pepper, then stir constantly for 1 minute using a soft spatula or wooden spatula. This mixture is the "roux" and should not be allowed to brown.||5 min.|
|5||Still over low heat, pour in the hot milk in a trickle while whisking to mix thoroughly...||5 min.|
|6||...until the sauce is thick.
If this looks familiar, it's because you have just made a classic bechamel sauce.
|7||Remove from the heat, add 150 g grated cheese...||2 min.|
|8||...and mix well.||3 min.|
|9||Check that the mixture is not too hot (you should be able to hold your finger in it); if not, leave to cool for a while longer.
Then add the egg yolks 2 at a time, mixing thoroughly at each stage.
|10||The mixture should now be very smooth.
Preheat the oven to 360°F (180°C).
|11||Beat the egg whites until stiff.||5 min.|
|12||Tip 1/4 of the beaten whites into the mixture.||1 min.|
|13||And fold in gently.||4 min.|
|14||Then tip this onto the rest of the egg whites...||2 min.|
|15||And fold in gently.
It doesn't really matter if there are a few lumps of white that are not completely mixed in.
|16||Butter the dish and dust with flour, as shown in this video.||5 min.|
|17||Pour the mixture into the dish until no more than 2/3 full.||2 min.|
|18||Bake for about 30 minutes, until the soufflé is well risen and nicely browned.||30 min.|
|19||Serve immediately with a green salad, for example, a few herbs and a good French dressing (vinaigrette).|
