DIRECTIONS

  • Melt butter and blend in flour, salt, & pepper.
  • Add milk stirring constantly (medium-high heat) until the mixture bubbles and thickens.
  • Remove from heat and stir in the cheese until melted.
  • In a bowl beat egg whites until stiff peaks form.
  • In another bowl beat egg yolks until thickened and lemon colored (about 5 minutes).
  • Stir cheese mixture slowly into the egg yolks.
  • Gradually pour yolk mixture over the stiff egg whites and gently fold together.
  • Pour mixture into ten custard cups or souffle cups (I use the large muffin tins) Cover the souffles with tin foil.
  • If using individual cups place all of them in one or two baking pans and place in your freezer.
  • Freeze souffles until 1 1/4 hours before serving time.
  • Before removing souffles from freezer preheat oven to 300 degrees F.
  • Remove souffles from freezer and pour very hot water into the baking pan around the souffles to about 1/2" deep.
  • Bake the frozen souffles 1 hour 15 minutes or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean.
  • Remove and serve immediately.
