This was an attractive and delicious recipe! We followed Caroline's recommendation and sauteed the onions beforehand, and they blended in nicely. We baked the souffle in 6 large ramikens, and were pleased with the consistency and the heat-retaining properties of the dishes. This will definitely be made again and again!
Light and airy souffle; next time I will saute the onions before adding; they dominated the flavors with their crunch/strong taste. Still a great recipe. Thanks for posting!
