  • mixer
  • baking tray


  • 1 cup Parmesan
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 tsp paprika
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/6 tsp white pepper
  • 1/6 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1 pinch nutmeg
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter
  • 1 1/3 cups milk
  • 1 1/2 cups Emmentaler cheese
  • 6 eggs
  • 1 tbsp parley
  • 1/4 tsp cream of tartar


  • Preheat the oven at 350F and let it heat until you make the batter.
  • In a bowl, combine ¼ cup all-purpose flour with ¼ tsp salt, paprika, white pepper, and shaved nutmeg for more aroma and flavour.
  • Take a saucepan and melt 4 tbsp of unsalted butter. While it melts, stir in the flour mixture and mix constantly. It should look like a paste. Slowly whisk in 1 ⅓ cup of milk and bring to simmer. Remove the saucepan from the heat and add the Parmesan and Emmentaler. Let it cool for some 10 minutes, and then add the yolks and some chopped parsley.
  • In another bowl, start mixing the egg whites and the cream of tartar. For note: if you don’t have the cream of tartar, skip and replace it with baking soda.
  • Mix well until the egg whites look like foam and can’t fall if you turn back the bowl. Mix about 3-5 minutes. Add the cheese mixture to the egg whites and whip some 20 more seconds until thoroughly combined.
  • Take 6 individual muffin tins and grease with some butter or oil. Add some parmesan to take them off the tray easily.
  • Pour the cheese mixture into each hole; pay attention to leave at least 1 inch of space between the batter and the surface. It will rise so try to make some nice-looking cheese souffle. Bake for 30 minutes or until golden brown.
  • Top some greenies or some more Parmesan and serve next to a salad or simply as they are.
