I’m super excited about this recipe! I decided to give an egg soufflé a try and I was blown away. This recipe is a show stopper. They are better than the ones you can buy! I used pancetta and swiss cheese, but you can use any flavor combinations you like. Try these! I promise you won’t regret it!
Pancetta & Swiss Egg Soufflé
1 sheet puff pastry, thawed
5 oz panchetta
8 oz grated swiss cheese
1 cup milk (2% or whole milk)
5 tbps butter
3 tbps flour
salt, to taste
pepper, to taste
1 egg (for wash)
4- 4oz oven safe ramekins
Directions: Preheat oven 400°. Cook the pancetta in a medium sauté pan until fully cooked and crispy.. Drain on a paper towel and set aside. Drain most of the fat from the pan (leave a little for flavor) Add in the butter and let it melt, slowly adding the flour and mixing well making a roux. Cook 2-3 minutes pull off the heat and set aside.
In a small bowl add the eggs and beat well. Add in the milk, roux and salt and peppers and mix fully. Cut puff pastry into 4 squares. Roll/flatten out each square slightly. Spray ramekins with cooking spray. Gently press the puff pastry into the ramekins leaving extra over the sides (this will be folded later).
Add swiss cheese to the ramekins and top with some pancetta, complete this with all of the ramekins. Evenly add the egg mixture to each ramekin. Top with a little more swiss cheese. Fold up the edges to completely cover the top. Beat 1 egg in a small bowl and brush over the top of the puff pastry in each ramekin.
Bake in the oven at 400° for 22-25 minutes until golden brown. Place a toothpick or knife into the center of the soufflé, if it comes out clean the soufflés are done. Remove from the oven and let set 5-10 minutes. Remove from the ramekin and enjoy!
Notes: You can use any ingredients to fill these soufflés with. Favorite cheeses or meats! If using veggies I’d sauté first to remove the moisture. These come out so perfectly crisp the moisture could ruin that.
