TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. Bake: 25 min. YIELD:8 servings

Ingredients

  • 5 egg whites
  • 6 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese, divided
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • Dash ground nutmeg
  • Dash cayenne pepper
  • 1 cup fat-free milk
  • 1/3 cup crumbled blue cheese
  • 4 egg yolks
  • 1/8 teaspoon cream of tartar

Directions

  • 1. Let egg whites stand at room temperature for 30 minutes. Coat a 2-qt. souffle dish with cooking spray and lightly sprinkle with 2 tablespoons Parmesan cheese; set aside.
  • 2. In a small saucepan, combine flour and seasonings. Gradually whisk in milk. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Cook and stir 1 minute longer or until thickened. Reduce heat. Stir in blue cheese and remaining Parmesan cheese. Remove from the heat; transfer to a large bowl.
  • 3. Stir a small amount of hot mixture into egg yolks; return all to the bowl, stirring constantly. Allow to cool slightly.
  • 4. In another large bowl with clean beaters, beat egg whites and cream of tartar until stiff peaks form. With a spatula, stir a fourth of the egg whites into cheese mixture until no white streaks remain. Fold in remaining egg whites until combined.
  • 5. Transfer to prepared dish. Bake at 350° for 25-30 minutes or until the top is puffed and center appears set. Serve immediately. Yield: 8 servings.
