Sunlight Soufflé

Adapted from the Breton cookbook ‘Uncommon Taste’ by The Gourmet, this delightful soufflé is fluffy and cheesy and is bound to delight your dinner guests. While it looks daunting to make, it is actually straightforward and all about the right temperature and timing. Don’t be discouraged if you don’t get it right the first time around- keep trying!

You will need:
50g goat cheese, crumbled
50g sharp cheddar, grated
½ tsp nutmeg
Salt and pepper, to taste
50g butter
50g plain flour
300ml milk
4 eggs

Method:

Heat oven to 200C/392F. Generously grease a 15cm soufflé dish or ramekin with butter and set aside on a baking sheet.

In a small pot, melt your butter, then stir in your flour, nutmeg, salt, and pepper. Continue stirring until the mixture is smooth and remove from heat before adding the milk gradually. Put back on medium heat and continuously stir until the mixture has thickened (about 10 minutes). When it is thick, remove from the heat and allow to cool.

Separate the egg whites and yolks. Stir the yolks into the milk and butter mixture, then add the cheese and stir until it is mixed evenly.

Beat your egg whites with an electric whisk until semi-stiff peaks form. With a metal spoon, stir in the egg whites into the cheese sauce, slowly and evenly. Transfer the mixture into your buttered soufflé dish from earlier.

Use a knife to trace around the edge to ‘top hat’ your mixture so that the soufflé rises above the rim and doesn’t stick. Bake for 25-30 minutes until the top is golden and risen. Serve immediately to prevent collapsing.

Gamer's vs. Jocks
  • Gamer: Do you seriously enjoy watching this stuff?
  • Jock: Yup, sports are fun.
  • Gamer: But there's no action.
  • Jock: Sports are all action, dude.
  • Gamer: Yeah, but where's all the space marines? Where are the princesses to save? Are there any zombies to massacre? Can you even level up? I can't wrap my brain around this madness.
  • Jock: Do you love being the most irritating person on the face of the earth?
  • Gamer: I'm just trying to bond with you!
  • Jock: Yeah, I get that, but I play games too, man. It's really not that special anymore. Everyone does it.
  • Gamer: I mean, yeah, but have you faced off against the covenant on an epic ring planet? Have you fought bare fisted with a super mutant in the Nevada wasteland? Have battled an epic underwater behemoth just to save a little girl with mutant powers? Have you teamed up with five other heroes in order to transport a-
  • Jock: Dude, I fucking get it. You play video games. You're just straight up referencing some of the most popular video games out there at the moment and you're not impressing me. Now will you shut the fuck up. This Parcheesi match is finally getting good and I'd like to actually watch instead it instead of listening to ramble off Buzzfeed's top ten best video game list.
  • Gamer: *internally* Dammit, video games don't capture his attention like they used to. I need to find something new to impress him with or he won't bother hanging out with me anymore.
  • *weeks later*
  • Jock: *casually skinning potatoes in his kitchen*
  • Gamer: *falls through the ceiling, wheezing* Hey, man.
  • Jock: Holy shit, dude! Are you okay?
  • Gamer: *coughs up dust* I'm fine. Great even.
  • Jock: You're so pale, dude. You look like you're dying. Oh my god, there's stuff growing on you.
  • Gamer: Those are mushrooms.
  • Jock: Jesus, we need to call someone!
  • Gamer: No, don't. It's my new hobby. I'm a mushroom collector now. It got kind of out of hand. *coughs up spores* But, I'm fine.
  • Jock: I'm calling an ambulance.
  • Gamer: No, stop! *grabs onto the jock's legs*
  • Jock: *shakes him off*
  • Gamer: *hand flies off*
  • Jock: What the fuck!?
  • Gamer: Oh, no! How am I going to game now?
  • Jock: What did you do to yourself?
  • Gamer: Alright, I ate some really weird mushrooms I ordered online.
  • Jock: Why the hell would you do that?
  • Gamer: I wanted to impress you by making think I was into drugs since you don't think video games are cool anymore.
  • Jock: Why the hell would you think doing drugs would impress me?
  • Gamer: I don't know. Aren't like all jocks and extroverts into drugs and stuff?
  • Jock: Fuck no! What the hell is wrong with you? I'm not even a jock. I just like watching sports every now and then. You have all these weird beliefs about how people function and it all comes from video games and comics and movies. Have you ever had a single realistic thought in your life? This is why our relationship isn't working out. You think everything works like a goddamn cartoon and blah blah blah blah...
  • Gamer: *internally* God, I've gotten myself into a bad situation. I wonder what Adam Jensen from Deus Ex: Revolution would do in this situation? Or Samus from Metroid? Or Sans from Undertale? Or... uhh... Dark Souls guy?
  • Jock: Are you listening to me!?
  • Gamer: Huh, what?
  • Jock: I said that I'm breaking up with you.
  • Gamer: No, you can't! We still haven't leveled up into marriage.
  • Jock: You're the worst boyfriend ever and possibly the dumbest person ever too. You can stay here and enjoy your mushrooms or video games or whatever. I'm leaving, and don't bother calling me. *storms out of the kitchen angrily*
  • Gamer: Wait, before you go you should actually call an ambulance! I can't walk because my legs became a very heavy chitinous substance.
  • Gamer: Hello, are you there?
  • Gamer: You're not really going to leave me here, are you?
  • Gamer: ...Dude?
  • *later*
  • Gamer: *his body is covered entirely in mushrooms. he has been converted into nothing more than a chitinous food source for budding mushroom children which now infest the once vibrant kitchen of this poor gay couple. let this be a cautionary tale for all of you drug doers out there. the deep web is real and dangerous. don't order strange drugs from off the internet. you'll go to hell before you die. i know this is more serious than the typical funny-relatable post, but i believe this is an important message. thank you for reading this very special update and please stick around for us for future developments.*

Minecraft Food Utensil Holder
- Phoenix Comicon Exclusive -

I made this with the intention of holding extra utensils by my pantry door. I am going to be selling these at Phoenix Comicon this year. They aren’t available in the Etsy shop yet, but if they get good reception I will make them using different game food. I already have a couple in mind that I would like to do.

** I know, I live off canned food and poptarts… **
