"That much eggs"

"Yes, I'm certain smaller versions can be made, and other recipes have called for whole milk. I HAD to give this a star rating or I wasn't able to leave a review. That's why I gave it only three. When I try it, I will give it the appropriate star rating."

"Can you make little ones, like 6?"

"I would imagine by using whole milk, the soufflé would taste more rich, and have mare calories and cholesterol than the recipe using fat-free milk. I don't have fat-free milk in the house, so when I make this recipe, I will be using whole mile"

"Wonder if this could be made with regular milk instead of the fat-free, or if the recipe will not work properly?"
