100 g ham
40 g butter
1 tsp flour
100 g hard cheese
100 ml milk
ground black pepper
SAGA Cooking Paper
individual baking molds
Dice the ham and separate egg yolks and whites.
Finely dice the onion and cook in the butter until transparent. Add the flour and continue cooking for 1 minute while stirring continuously.
Remove from heat and allow to cool slightly before adding the milk, and salt and black pepper to taste. Cook for another 5 minutes, stirring frequently.
Remove from the heat, add egg yolks and mix thoroughly. Let the mixture cool down before adding the grated cheese and ham.
Beat the egg whites with a pinch of salt until soft peaks form. Add half of the egg whites to the cheese and ham mix and stir before folding the rest in.
Cut a sheet of SAGA Cooking Paper into strips roughly 2.5 cm higher than the sides of the molds. Line the insides of the molds with the paper strips to form a ‘tube’ which secures the soufflé’s rise.
Put the mixture in the molds and bake in a pre-heated oven at 190ºС for 25-30 min.
Do not open the oven while baking.
