Grandma’s Spinach Souffle

January 21, 2011 coloradogirl

I don’t know where Grandma got this recipe, but I think it is great! Definately one of my most favorite.

¼ cup butter
¼ cup flour
1 cup milk
¼ teaspoon dry mustard
½ teaspoon salt
1 cup shredded cheese
¼ teaspoon cream of tartar
3 eggs, separated
16 oz. Package of frozen spinach, thawed and drained


·Preheat oven to 375 degrees F

·In a small saucepan, heat the butter. Allow all of the water to cook out.

·Add the flour and dry mustard, this into the melted butter, mix together well and allow to cook for 2 minutes.

·Stir in the milk and turn the heat to high. Once the mixture reaches a boil, remove from the heat.

·In a separate bowl, beat the egg yolks to a creamy consistency. Temper the yolks into the milk mixture, constantly mixing. Remove from the heat and add the spinach and cheese. Mix well.

·In a separate bowl, whip the egg whites and cream of tartar until glossy and firm.

·Gently fold the spinach mixture into the egg whites.

·Pour into an 8” x 8” baking dish.

·Bake in the oven for 35 minutes

I normally use a baking dish for this recipe, but since I really like the crust around the edges, I had the idea of trying to use a muffin tin. So, I took part of the mixture (not all in case it didn’t work) and tried it.

What I got was small souffles that were just the right size to eat, have some left for breakfast or take for lunch the next day.

I think they turned out wonderful! What do you think?
