"This golden-crowned souffle puffs up elegantly into an airy treat," assures Clem Hood of North Battleford, Saskatchewan. "Guests will delight in its fluffy texture and luscious taste. It's a great way to dress up everyday broccoli."
Total TimePrep: 30 min. Bake: 30 min.
- 3 cups frozen chopped broccoli, thawed and drained
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
- 4 eggs, separated
- In a saucepan over medium heat, cook and stir broccoli and butter until the butter is melted. Set 2 tablespoons broccoli aside for topping. Add flour and salt to the remaining broccoli; stir until blended. Gradually add milk. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Remove from the heat; add cheese, stirring until cheese is melted.
- In a large bowl, beat egg yolks until thickened and lemon-colored, about 5 minutes. Add broccoli mixture and set aside. In a small bowl, beat egg whites until stiff peaks form; fold into broccoli mixture.
- Pour into an ungreased 1-1/2-qt. deep round baking dish. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 20 minutes. Sprinkle with the reserved broccoli. Bake 10 minutes longer or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean.

Great Recipe, I have made about 4 times now, you can add potatoes and zuchinni as well. I also top with cheddar cheese sprinkles to add color and a little different flavor.
