Before you start
These soufflés are cooked and served in individual porcelain moulds. Choose round ones with 5-6 cm high vertical sides, and an internal diameter of 12-13 cm, which will contain about 500 ml or 2 cups when 3/4 full. The high vertical sides will contain the soufflé's up and down movements, while cooking and cooling, and avoid spilling.
The secrets for success are: 1) use eggs at room temperature, 2) avoid any trace of egg yolk in the egg whites, while separating them, and 3) refrain from opening the oven door too early.
A hand-held or stand mixer will make things easier for this recipe.
- Preheat the oven to 195°C/375°F. Butter the moulds.
- Melt the butter in a saucepan using low heat. Add the flour, stirring until you obtain a paste. Pour in the milk, very slowly, stirring constantly. Cook for 4-5 min.
- Add the wine and mustard. Stir and cook 2-3 more min. Incorporate the goat cheese and thyme leaves (not the stem). Add salt and pepper to taste (pay attention: the goat-cheese may be salty!). Remove the saucepan from the heat and set aside.
- Separate the egg whites and yolks. Add the yolks to the pan.
- In a separate bowl, using an electric mixer, beat the white(s) to form soft peaks, then incorporate them into the cheese-yolk mixture, blending gently.
- Pour out into the buttered mould(s) and sprinkle with the grated cheddar. Clean any drops off of the inner sides: the soufflé will rise evenly if it has no obstacles on the inside of the dish.
- Put the mould(s) in the oven. After about 23 min, the soufflé(s) will be golden and ready. To verify, you can insert a tooth-pick into it. If it comes out clean, the soufflé is ready.
- Serve without delay since the hot air entrapped in the soufflé begins to escape as soon as it is taken out of the oven, causing it to deflate.
