Reviews for Florence-Inspired Souffle
"Egg yolk is listed in the ingredients. Read down the list. Directions should have been a little clearer."
"Egg yolks are mentioned in Step 4 but they are not in the ingredients list."
"Good recipe. A little time consuming and needs more spice but it can take more veggies. I made individual souffles and the rose way over the top but settled down after sitting."
"Very good despite a couple substitutions just because I used what was on hand. I put thin sliced cheddar/Parmesan on top which was quite tasty."
