The second recipe for October was chosen by Summer of Sexy Apartment. I was both excited and nervous to try this recipe. I have seen the episode where she cooks it, and every time I see it I vow to make it. Thanks to Summer for forcing me!
It really wasn't very difficult, and the results were outstanding! I used a good Roquefort, since the blue cheese is the main flavor...you've gotta go for the good stuff! I also think this would be equally delicious with goat cheese, sharp cheddar, or gruyere.
I served this as the main course with a side salad. My favorite salad for fall is mixed greens, sliced pears, toasted walnuts, and dried cranberries, tossed with a raspberry vinaigrette. I usually add some blue cheese, feta, or goat cheese, but I figured the souffle had enough cheese for the whole meal :-)
I was so nervous about making a souffle that I followed Ina's instructions to the letter. Therefore, I am just going to link to the recipe instead of posting it here.
