Ham Souffle

Pretty Tasty

An old Recipe for making Ham Soufflé:


  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 4 egg yolks
  • 1 1/2 cups cooked ham, chopped
  • 4 egg whites
  • 1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar


  1. Preheat the oven to 375 °F (190 °C). Grease a 2-quart dish with butter and sprinkle with flour.
  2. Melt the butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add the flour and stir until smooth. Gradually add the milk, salt, and cayenne pepper, stirring constantly until the mixture thickens and boils. Reduce the heat and simmer for 2 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  3. Remove the saucepan from the heat. Beat the egg yolks in a small bowl and gradually stir in about 1/4 cup of the hot milk mixture, whisking constantly. Pour the egg yolk mixture into the saucepan and stir well.
  4. Stir in the chopped ham and mix well. Set aside.
  5. In a separate bowl, beat the egg whites and cream of tartar with an electric mixer until stiff peaks form.
  6. Gently fold the egg whites into the ham mixture until well combined. Be careful not to over mix.
  7. Pour the mixture into the prepared soufflé dish. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes, or until the soufflé is puffed and golden brown.
  8. Serve immediately while still hot.

Enjoy your delicious Ham Soufflé!
