  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 2 quart casserole dish, and coat the inside with Parmesan cheese.
  2. Melt the butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Whisk in flour, and gradually whisk in milk so that no lumps form. Cook, stirring until thick and light brown in color. Remove from heat, and stir in the mustard and cayenne pepper. Whisk in the egg yolks, and Cheddar cheese, then stir in the ham. Set the mixture aside.
  3. In a clean dry glass or metal bowl, whip the egg whites to soft but firm peaks. Fold the cheese mixture into the egg whites using a rubber spatula. Mix well, but not too long, or the mixture will deflate. It is okay to have some white streaks. Transfer the mixture to the prepared casserole dish.
  4. Place the dish in a larger shallow pan, and place them in the preheated oven. Fill the outer pan with water. The steam will help lift the souffle.
  5. Bake for 50 to 60 minutes in the preheated oven. Remove the casserole dish from the water bath. The souffle will have a golden color to the crust, and it may fall slightly when taken out of the oven. This is okay!

This recipe is just about perfect! The parmesean dusting in the dish and the mustard give the souffle an extra kick, so my husband and in-laws really loved this souffle. I've made this recipe numerous times and will definitely make it again!

I didn't really like it. I didn't have the ham, but it probably wouldn't have made a difference anyway.

I divided this recipe into 6-7 oz. ramekins and baked for 30 minutes. It turned out fabulous. I will definitely make these again :o)

I added salt, pepper & more cayenne pepper. My husband really liked it.

We love this recipe, but it takes a lot longer than 10 minutes to prepare. Or I may be turtle woman. So plan for more prep time, I'd say about 30 minutes.

This was my first attempt at a souffle and it turned out perfect. I omitted the ham and added sauteed fresh spinach and finely chopped onion plus a couple of dashes of worcestershire.

Delicious but didn't rise for me...not sure why. But I'll keep trying because we all enjoyed the taste.
