Author Notes: 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

Serves: 10-12

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 pounds grated mixture of cheddar, pepper jack, gruyere, and mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 6 large eggs

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. <br /><br />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 ?<br /><br />www.kankanasaxena.net

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.
