DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 375°. Butter four 3/4-cup ramekins; set aside.
  • In a medium saucepan, melt butter over medium-low heat.
  • Add onion, garlic, and thyme; season with salt and pepper.
  • Cook, stirring often, until onion is softened, about 8 minutes.
  • Stir in flour; cook, stirring, 3 minutes.
  • Gradually whisk in milk; simmer, whisking constantly, until thickened, about 2 minutes.
  • Remove from heat, and stir in 1/2 cup cheese and 1/2 teaspoon salt.
  • Whisk in sweet-potato puree, then egg yolks, one at a time.
  • In a mixing bowl, beat egg whites with a pinch of salt until stiff peaks form.
  • Whisk 1/4 of whites into cheese mixture.
  • Using a rubber spatula, gently fold in the rest.
  • Place ramekins on a rimmed baking sheet.
  • Pour mixture into ramekins; sprinkle with remaining cheese.
  • Bake until puffed and golden brown, 15 to 20 minutes.
  • You can also make this as one large souffle. Bake in a 1 quart dish for 25 to 30 minutes.
