Simple Cheese Souffle


Can I just say I am slightly in lust with Modern Family.  I can watch the reruns and enjoy them just as much as the first airing.  Although I am slightly excited the new season is starting soon.

I like it so much because I can kind of relate to their crazy family antics.  It's the little things in life after all.

And speaking of the little things -- or more accurately the simple things -- today I am whipping up a Simple Cheese Souffle.  If you can say eggs and cheese are my friends, this is a must eat.


The Shopping List:
  • 3/4 cup liquid egg whites
  • 3/4 cup egg beaters
  • 8 oz cream cheese, cubed and softened
  • 1 tsp basil
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • 1 tsp thyme
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt


The Method:

Preheat the oven to 350°F.

In a bowl use a blender to mix 1/2 cup of liquid egg whites until they become frothy.  Set them aside.

In another bowl mix 1/4 cup of liquid egg whites, 3/4 cup egg beaters, cubed cream cheese, basil, oregano, thyme, and salt.  Gently fold in the frothy egg whites.   

Put four, one cup ramekins on a pan and pour in the egg mixture.  Bake for 35 to 40 minutes until the top is bubbling over and slightly browned.
