Questions & Replies

  1. Can I leave out or replace the flour. My daughter is trying to go gluten free.


  1. I really enjoyed this with my lunch today!!! After I added the white sauce to the spinach I put some shredded cheddar on top and let it melt in.. wowzas.. it was sooo good :-) THANK YOU!!
  2. Is it just me, or are the instructions very confusing? A little out of order it can handle, but that and some sentences were run-on, so I didn't' really understand what I was supposed to do after certain steps. It turned out watery, but ok.
  3. i just made this recipe, and it was amazing. my first souffle, and it turned out perfect -- thank you! i think the serving size may be a little low; i ate half the souffle for dinner (but that was all i ate).
  4. This recipe was light, quick, easy and so delicious! I used 2% milk. Thank you for sharing, Bev!
  5. I have never attempted a souffle before, but this looked too good to pass up! I definitely could have prepared it better, but even with my amateur cooking skills and poor execution, it was STILL amazing! Next time I will make sure the egg whites aren't still somewhat runny, will make sure to saute the onions before starting the white sauce, and won't forget to add the cheese before adding the egg whites... Fool proof recipe, I LOVE it! Thanks for sharing! :D


  1. Made some changes--shallots instead of onions; half parmesan, half bleu cheese; made the souffle in individual ramekins--they were gorgeous--puffed up beuatifully, lloked fabulous, tasted better.
