This cheese souffle is impressive, but deceptive. You make it in a cuisinart. I call it The American Way Cheese Souffle. Leave it to us to find the short cut. It is perfect for entertaining since it is easy and very popular. I have made this many times, and the bowl is always scrapped clean. It can be served with a thinly sliced baguette, but it goes just as well with homemade tortilla chips. Note: Served with a green salad, this dish also makes a lovely supper. Cheers. —Waverly

She is teaching them, one meal at a time, to enjoy wholesome homemade food. She abhors processed food but recognizes its insidious nature and accepts the fact that her children will occasionally get some Skittles, Doritos, or the like. Her philosophy and hope is that if she teaches them well at home, they will prefer wholesome healthy foods when they go out into the world without her.

This dish looks amazing and i looovee souffle but I always feel it's way to tough , but your recipe looks quite easy and i am definitely going to try it.

I have a question; I don't have a souffle dish , so wanted to ask you if i can make it in a normal baking pan ?

HMMM.. I have not tried it in a regular baking dish. You would need a large one and then you would have to adjust the time. If you try it that way, let me know how it comes out. I would probably pick up a souffle dish though - they are around 10 dollars. They also make pretty serving dishes.

This sounds like my kind of dip. Fabulous! I will be making this one. Love how you can make it in the processor.
