The Birthday Request - a Souffle

Each year Ken asks what I want for my birthday,  and I say the same thing = a souffle.  Ken worked many cooking jobs that ended with his position as a private chef for one of the Pillsbury family.  One of the interview questions was could he make a souffle.  He answered in the affirmative - and he had no idea what a souffle was!  Several cookbooks and practices, he could do it.

This year he made me a smoked salmon souffle for brunch. For specific measurements, check a cook book.  Ken uses Fannie Farmer.  

Make a cheese sauce with yolks.  

Set aside to cool.

Whip egg whites to stiff peaks.

Combine the two and fold gently

Place in the souffle dish.

Pour boiling water into a pan and set the souffle in the pan of water.

Place in the pre heated oven

Remove gently from oven when done

Serve warm. Enjoy.  Thank you. Ken!
