Summer Souffle...

Found an amazing recipe for d'Oeuf et de Gruyère with Sauteed Mushrooms via Sunday Suppers.

2 T butter plus
2 T for ramekins
1/3 c flour
2/3 c milk
1 c ricotta
4 egg yolks
2 T each: chopped parsley, thyme, rosemary
1/3 c grated gruyere cheese
6 egg whites
1 T butter
3 c assorted mushrooms
1 t finely chopped rosemarysalt and pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Brush the inside of 6- 3/12 inch ramekins with melted butter. Melt the rest of the butter in a sauce pan on medium-low heat. Stir in flour to make a paste. Let this cook for 2 minutes to cook out the raw flour taste. Slowly whisk in the milk and cook, whisking often, until the mixture thickens and little bubbles appear on the sides of the pan, approximately 5-7 minutes. Do not let the mixture boil. Remove from heat. Let cool for 5 minutes. Add in ricotta, yolks, herbs and gruyere. Season well with salt and pepper.Beat the egg whites in a clean bowl with an electric mixer until stiff peaks form. Gently fold the whites through the ricotta mixture. Fill the ramekins just to the top. Place in a baking dish and pour in enough boiling water to come half way up the sides.Bake for 30 minutes or until the soufflés are browned and risen.In the meantime, roughly chop the mushrooms. Melt the butter in a sautee pan. Add the rosemary to the butter and cook for 1 minute. Add the mushrooms, season with salt and pepper. Cook until the mushrooms release their juices.To finish: Remove the soufflés from the oven and spoon mushrooms over top. Serve immediately
