National Cheese Souffle Day: How to make a classic cheese soufflé


Another day another food holiday. Today is National Cheese Souffle Day and this is how you can make yourself a classic cheese soufflé.

May 18 is National Cheese Souffle Day and while a cheese soufflé is a rather tasty dish, it is also one of the trickiest to get right. A delicate recipe that can easily go completely wrong if you slip up on just one step.

Too much salt, too much flour, not enough time in the oven and your soufflé will turn into a cheesy pile of gloop. So instead of looking at multiple different recipes that you can try out, we are just going to stick with how to make a classic and simple cheese soufflé.
