Nigel Slater's cheese and thyme puddings

By December 27, 2019 , ,

I've been a fan of Nigel Slater's for many years and this is one of my favourite recipes of his. I call it a cheat's souffle as it's almost like one but with a little less fuss. My favourite cheese is goats cheese for this recipe as it goes well with thyme, but you can also use a blue cheese or strong cheddar and change the herb to chives. I like to add dijon to the recipe to bring out the flavour of the cheeses.

10g butter
70g grated parmesan
2 eggs separated (Place the whites in a large bowl and the yolks in a smaller one)
120g goats cheese log
50ml  cream or creme fraiche

10ml dijon mustard
10g thyme leaves finely chopped
Salt and pepper to taste

Preheat the oven to 190c (fan) 200c (Normal)
Butter 4 small 150ml ramekins
Mash the goats cheese and parmesan into the egg yolks, then stir in the cream, dijon and chopped thyme
Season with salt and pepper
Whisk the egg whites until they are almost stiff, then fold gently into the cheese mixture
Pour the mixture into the ramekins filling about three quarters full
Put the dishes onto a baking sheet and bake for 10-15 minutes, until the are lightly risen and have a slight wobble
Serve immediately
