This simple soufflé is tasty and durable, and it brings a warm spot of color to the table, making it a constant at our fall feasts. Thanksgiving, in fact, marks the annual debut of this homey family favorite. Use the sweetest carrots you can find.
Recipe from The Blackberry Farm Cookbook by Sam Beall/Clarkson Potter, 2009.
|2 pounds carrots, peeled and cut into -inch-thick rounds||1 tablespoon unsalted butter, at room temperature|
|1 cup whole milk||1 teaspoon kosher salt|
|1 cup saltine cracker crumbs||1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper|
|3/4 cup grated sharp cheddar cheese||1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper|
|1/3 cup minced onion||3 large eggs|
Preheat the oven to 350°F. Butter a 2-quart soufflé dish or baking dish and set it aside.
Put the carrots into a large pot and cover with about an inch of salted water. Bring to a boil over high heat, reduce the heat, and simmer the carrots for about 10 minutes, until tender when pierced with the tip of a sharp knife.
Strain the carrots, puree in a food processor, and transfer to a large bowl. Stir in the milk, cracker crumbs, cheese, onion, butter, salt, cayenne, and black pepper.
In a large bowl, use an electric mixer or wire whisk to beat the eggs until they are foamy, and then whisk them into the carrot mixture.
Transfer the carrot mixture into the prepared soufflé dish and bake for 40 to 45 minutes, until puffed and light golden brown on top. Serve warm.
