Left-over cheese soufflé

Make use of the odds and ends that are left over with our tasty recipe.


  • 50g butter plus a little extra for greasing
  • 25g plain flour
  • 200ml whole milk
  • 300g hard and soft cheese, cut into chunks
  • 100ml double cream
  • 4 eggs, separated
  • Pinch of cayenne pepper


  • Heat the oven to 200°c. Melt all the butter in a saucepan. Brush a 20cm soufflé dish with a little, then dus with the flour.
  • In the saucepan, stir the flour into the rest of the melted butter, then sizzle for one minute. Gradually pour the milk to make a white sauce.
  • Add two thirds of the cheese allowing to melt.
  • Leave to cool slightly then mix in the remaining cheese, cream and egg yolks.
  • Season with cayenne pepper.
  • In a clean bowl, whisk the egg whites until stiff peaks. Fold into the cheese sauce, then carefully tip into the soufflé dish. Bake for 25 minutes until puffed up and golden.
  • Serve with a seasonal salad.

I have grown up by the water and can’t imagine not living near the sea. A bbq on the beach looking out across The Solent is a great way to end a day.
