  • Savoury souffles can be made with a variety of cheeses but one of the tastiest is Stilton with its deliciously mellow flavour. This is an easy recipe so don’t worry if you have never made a soufflé before – just make sure you whisk the egg whites until they are stiff and fold them into the mixture lightly. A cheese soufflé makes an ideal snack or supper dish.


    • 40g butter or margarine plus a little extra for greasing
    • 25g plain flour
    • 200ml semi skimmed milk
    • 4 eggs, medium, separated
    • 150g Stilton cheese, grated
    • Salt and freshly ground black pepper


    • Grease a 1.5 litre soufflé dish with a little butter or margarine.

    • Melt the butter or margarine in a large saucepan over a medium heat.

    • Add the flour, stir well and cook gently for 1 minute.

    • Remove the pan from the heat, cool slightly, then gradually stir in the milk.

    • Bring to the boil, stirring continuously, then cool slightly and stir in the egg yolks.

    • Add the cheese and seasoning and stir together well until everything is combined.

    • Put the egg whites into a clean bowl and whisk until stiff.

    • Fold 1 tablespoon of the whisked egg whites lightly into the sauce, then fold in the remaining egg whites very gently using a metal spoon.

    • Pour the mixture into the prepared dish and bake for 25 – 30 minutes until well risen and golden brown.

    • Serve the soufflé immediately with a tomato and onion salad.
