    Ms. Ayon's dishes's Note:

    A great souffle for an elegant meal. The sharp cheddar cheese stretches the flavor of crabmeat, yet contributes rich flavor on its own.

      Just fabulous! What an elegant dish. I made it for just the two of us, to experiment (never having made a real souffle' before) and now I can't wait to make it again for company, to "show off"! Only change: I used Jarlsberg cheese instead of Cheddar, because that's what I had on hand. Thanks, Mrs. Ayon!
