    blgpts's Note:

    What a wonderful dish! Its easier then it sounds. I was a very very young cook when I made this for my family. My son, with his own family just recently asked me to make this again for him. My kids loved this dish.. and it really is simple to make.. The most important thing is your timing. It MUST be eaten as soon as it comes from the oven or it absolutely will fall!Enjoy! Delicious with a salad and dessert. MEMO: you do NOT grease your baking dish, or it will have nothing to cling to so it can climb. The directions in the book specifically said DO NOT GREASE!

      Fantastic! I never made a souffle before and it came out perfect. I made them in individual ramekins with cheddar and baked them for 45 minutes. I'm so happy with them, thank you so much!!

      Thanks blgpts, this was delicious, just like the one my Mom used to make. I used cheddar cheese with peppadews, very tasty!

      I was about to enter my mom's recipe for my cookbook when I found this - exactly how we have made cheese souffle for years! Pretty much the Betty Crocker recipe from my 1971 edition. I love using extra sharp cheddar and about a 1/4 tsp. cayenne in the roux. Thanks for the tip about the waxed paper - I'm going to have to try that. This is comfort food for me, because of the memories attached to it.
