ffwD: Muenster Cheese Soufflés

20131024_191801

I really enjoyed this week’s ffwD assignment. These soufflés turned out puffy, fluffy, eggy, and yummy. The bits of French muenster were melted and gooey without feeling congealed or greasy. And the panko breadcrumbs added the tiniest amount of crunch to balance the airy soufflé. Despite their immediately deflating nature, I found it more comical that I was baking and eating these delicate soufflés while watching the hard-hitting Thursday night NFL game between the Carolina Panthers and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Quite the juxtapositional experience!

These muenster cheese soufflés were made for French Fridays with Dorie, a group of bloggers who are cooking their way through Dorie Greenspan’s Around My French Table: More Than 300 Recipes from My Home to Yours.

    your souffle looks great. I made them with swiss cheese and found the taste a little flat. i guess it tastes best with muenster.

    I have made a spinach soufflé in the past, but this version sounds delicious. I will have to give this a try.

    Photographing souffles is not the easiest thing to do. I remember putting metal nuts and bolts in the souffle dishes before pouring in the mixture. When they came out of the oven, the heat retained in the metal objects kept the souffles risen for that bit longer, allowing a picture to be taken of it fully risen. Not for eating unless you have very strong teeth or an iron deficiency:)

    Your souffles turned out perfectly! I think those burly footballers would love one of these.

    I like that you watched tv while eating them, souffles have such a formal reputation! They look really good!

    Sounds like a great football snack. Always good to try something different.

    Cheese souffle’s are so good. I love that they were football food, love it! You don’t really hear too much about Muenster cheese, I really like it!

    I would go to a lot more football watching events if they served soufflés a them! Bread crumbs! Gotta remember that next time!

    I keep thinking I will make a cheese souffle one day but I still haven’t…one day! And it is funny about eating a delicate thing like this watching football. Wonder if my hubby would go for it… ; )

    Wow i bet they were delicious. Muster is such a heavily flavoured smelly cheese.

    These were yummy, weren’t they? And watching football while eating gourmet French food just means you’re well rounded 🙂

    I’ve never made a cheese soufflé and these are such a nice size. I also love that you used the word “juxtapositional.” Not sure I’ve ever used it in a sentence and it’s such a good word. haha!

    That is a funny juxtaposition — eating something so delicate while watching such a brawny sport. 😉

    I would eat these during a football game in a minute!

    Oct 27, 2013 @ 20:36:51

    Hilarious! How many football viewers do you think were eating souffles as they watched the game? I think you might be the only one!

    Oct 27, 2013 @ 22:38:10

    With football, too funny. I think it would be hard to eat just one or two!

    Oct 28, 2013 @ 19:16:56

    They look wonderful! I’ve never actually made a souffle – maybe it’s time!

    I was wondering about the breadcrumbs! I havent had a chance to make this one yet… 🙂 maybe sooner in the future? I cant find this cheese and I really want to try it with this cheese rather than substituting with cheddar! 🙂 great job!
