Herb and Garlic Dressing Soufflé

Yield 8 servings
To "heighten" the effect of this soufflé, use a 1 1/2-quart soufflé dish, allowing the soufflé to puff for presentation.


  • 3 tablespoons butter, divided
  • 2 1/2 cups soft breadcrumbs, divided
  • 3 large garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 large shallots, minced
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh chives
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh sage
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh rosemary
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground white pepper
  • 1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
  • 6 large eggs, separated
  • 1 cup milk

How to Make It

  1. Brush a 1 1/2- or 2-quart soufflé dish with 2 tablespoons butter; dust with 1/2 cup breadcrumbs.

  2. Melt remaining 1 tablespoon butter in a small skillet over medium-high heat. Add garlic and shallots; cook 2 minutes or until tender. Stir in parsley and next 6 ingredients.

  3. Beat cream cheese at medium speed with an electric mixer until creamy. Add yolks, beating well. Add garlic mixture; beat well.

  4. Heat milk in a large heavy saucepan over medium heat until tiny bubbles begin to appear around edges of pan. Gradually whisk about one-fourth of hot milk into yolk mixture; add to remaining hot milk. Cook over medium heat 4 minutes or until thickened and thermometer registers 160°, whisking constantly.

  5. Transfer yolk mixture to a large bowl; gently fold in remaining 2 cups breadcrumbs.

  6. Beat egg whites at high speed with an electric mixer until soft peaks form; gently fold into yolk mixture.

  7. Pour egg mixture into prepared dish. Bake at 350° for 30 to 35 minutes or until puffed and golden. Serve immediately.
