Method
  • 1

    Set the oven to 200 deg c.

  • 2

    Butter the souffle moulds, sprinkle with half the breadcrumbs and parmesan to coat and tip out any excess.

  • 3

    Separate the eggs.

  • 4

    Boil and simmer the milk with the onion and the bay leaf to infuse.

  • 5

    Melt 50g of butter with the flour in a saucepan over a low heat, stirring constantly.
    Cook for approximately 2 minutes and then add the mustard. Gradually add the milk whilst stirring, discarding the onion and bay leaf. Cook gently until thick and smooth.

  • 6

    Pour into a bowl and allow to cool for 5 minutes, after which whisk in the egg yolks. Stir the grated cheddar and smoked paprika in.

  • 7

    Whisk the egg whites to firm peaks. Add one spoonful of the egg whites to the room temperature sauce and mix. Fold the rest of the egg whites in gently.

  • 8

    Spoon the mix into the buttered moulds, wipe across with the edge of a palette knife to create a clean finish. Run your thumb and forefinger around the inside edge of the ramekin creating a 'top hat' effect.

  • 9

    Place on a baking tray and bake for approximately 15 minutes or until the top is golden and risen and has a slight wobble.

  • 10

    Serve immediately.

Chef's tip

«Any yolk in the white when whisking will prevent the white from foaming and retaining air bubbles. 'Top-hatting' the souffle stops it from catching on the sides of the ramikin while rising.»
