Three-Cheese Souffles Recipe

Three-Cheese Souffles Recipe

No matter when I've made these soufflés, they have always been a success. Although I've never seen the centers start to fall, it's best to plan on serving them hot from the oven. —Jean Ference, Sherwood Park, Alberta
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 40 min. + cooling Bake: 40 min. YIELD:8 servings

Directions
