Give me cheese and I’ll be happy! Give me eggs and I’ll be very-very happy! Give me a combination of cheese and eggs and you’ve won my heart for life! This is honestly how the latest recipe in my latest recipe in the Royal Baking Powder series made me feel. If you are like me and have or had never had a cheese soufflé before, you are seriously missing out! But, I’m here for you because I get it, we grew up with our Gogo’s making scones, queens-cakes or magwinya. Haha.
A soufflé is basically a baked egg-centred dish which is perfect as a savoury dish, a dessert or in our case, a lunchbox or afternoon snack for the kids. I normally get home around 5:30pm and they are nagging for a snack (usually an unhealthy one) while I settle in and prepare dinner, so these will be my new replacement. If you’re into meal prepping, a good idea might be to make a few on a Sunday afternoon and keep them in the fridge. When you need them, you can just warm up them up and serve, although they can also be enjoyed cold. I’ve noticed that Lesedi’s appetite increases on the days when he plays a sport so this protein dose is exactly what he needs.
The fancy-sounding dish originates from France but is not sophisticated to make at all. The word soufflé originates from the French verb “souffler” which means “to puff” – hence the puffy, spilling look of them.
What I loved about it, is that you can make it in interesting variations, like adding corn, spinach, herbs, bacon and seafood.
Here is how you make the magic happen! This recipe makes 6-8 servings.
