Steps to make Classic Cheese and Leek Soufflé


Preheat oven and grease ramekins


Preheat the oven to 395 °F. Lightly grease six soufflé ramekins with some butter.


Cook leeks


In a large saucepan, melt 4 ounces of butter and add 1 finely chopped leek. Cook for a few minutes until soft but not brown.


Add flour and mustard


Stir in 2 ounces of flour and 2 teaspoons of Dijon mustard.


Add milk


While continuously stirring, pour in ½ pint of milk and whisk until a thick, glossy sauce forms. Once thickened, season with salt and pepper to taste.


Add egg yolks


Using a wooden spoon, beat in 4 egg yolks until completely combined.


Add cheese


Stir in 3 ounces of grated emmental cheese and mix until melted. Transfer to a large bowl.


Beat egg whites


In an extremely clean bowl, beat 4 egg whites for about 5 minutes until stiff and firm.


Combine all ingredients


Use a metal spoon and stir in 2 tablespoons of the beaten egg into the soufflé mixture then fold in the remaining egg whites in 2 parts. Work gently and efficiently to retain volume in the mixture.


Fill ramekins


Fill greased ramekins with spoonfuls of the soufflé mixture, leaving about ½-inch from the top.




Place ramekins on a baking sheet and bake in the preheated oven for 15 minutes or until souffles have risen and golden in color.



Serve straight from the oven before the souffles sink!

I swapped out the normal milk for soy, emmental cheese for goat cheese and didn't add any eggs instead I used some plant based eggs to make this a fully vegan meal, it's totally possible which is why I love it so much.

Lilyann Rava

I decided to add some sourcream to the top of this and use it to prank my kids into eating their dinner, it worked LOL! They thought it was cupcakes fresh out of the oven.

Blaire Delach

Won't say that it's the best out there but it's my number 2 for sure now since it's flavorful.

Jayden Eisenlohr

This was kinda hard to make in my opinion at one point I thought I was going to burn the cheese or something but it turned out edible so that's good!

Audree Savich

Mouthwatering and delicious, one of the best cheese leek souffles i've ever had and I've had quite a lot!

Paisleigh Wenners

Took a while to make this but it was alright just wish i could've made it in under 30 minutes cause I was starving.

Sailor Mahaffie

Kinda plain but my boyfriend liked it a lot so did my kids so that's a plus.

Lillyana Ditlow

The leeks made this meal taste refreshing and healthy i guess that's why I really enjoyed it.

Anneliese Feigelson

Had this with some bacon bits on the inside and even added a lot more cheese to the top which melted right away--so good.

Guadalupe Thermitus

I'm happy with it for sure just decided to make it along side some cheesy garlic bread too.

Lindsey Lincks

Thanks for sharing this it's super delicious i'm obessed with anything that has a bunch of cheese.

Leona Eghbali

This is good but I actually prefer the welsh leek and cheese more since it's more flavorful.

Tamia Wead

Tasty and simple meal, exactly how I like making my lunches since i'm kinda lazy.

Demi Bujanda

Love at first sight, I saw this and just knew it was going to be as good as it looked and I was right.

Raquel Strittmater

So excited to make this again to impress my mom with some classic British food, it was amazing from the first bite.

Cecily Arita

Needed a bit more seasoning in my opinion so I tossed on some chili spice too and it was perfection.

Clover Housley

Made this with some banana bread for dessert oddly enough they taste just fine when eaten together.

Ila Yanuzzi

Didn't add any mustard cause I hate mustard but I did add some horseradish sauce in its place.

Sandra Koechner

This is my replacement for mac and cheese when it comes to my kids and they gobble this right up like hungry hippos :)

Emalyn Senkus

Simple meal for two or one person I'd say it's not the most filling but it will help if you need something small to eat during the day.


I love it! So delicious!
