Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme (or 2 tsp/10 mL chopped fresh)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 1/2 cup milk
  • 6 egg yolks
  • 1 1/4 cup shredded extra-old Cheddar cheese
  • 2 cups sliced mushrooms
  • 1 onion chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves chopped
  • 8 egg whites
  • 1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar

Method

Grease 8- x 3-3/4-inch (2.5 L) souffle dish with 1 tsp (5 mL) of the butter; sprinkle side and base with Parmesan cheese until evenly coated. Set aside.

In saucepan, melt 2 tbsp (25 mL) of the remaining butter over medium heat. Stir in flour, mustard, thyme, salt and cayenne; cook, stirring, until golden and crumbly, about 2 minutes. Whisk in milk, 1/2 cup (125 mL) at a time, until smooth; cook, whisking constantly, until thickened and pasty, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat. Whisk in egg yolks and cheese. Transfer to large bowl; let cool for 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, in skillet, melt remaining butter over medium-high heat; fry mushrooms, onion and garlic, stirring occasionally, until no liquid remains, about 8 minutes. Transfer to blender or small food processor; puree until smooth. Stir into sauce in bowl; set aside.

In separate large bowl, beat egg whites with cream of tartar until stiff peaks form. Fold one-third into cheese mixture; fold in remaining whites. Scrape into prepared dish. Place on rimmed baking sheet; bake in centre of 375ºF (190ºC) oven until puffed and golden, about 55 minutes. Serve immediately.
