There's no need to get bored with eggs, especially with this homemade egg soufflé recipe. It comes out so fluffy and delicious. Create a tasty brunch dish by adding variations of ham, cheese, spinach ... all of your favorite ingredients. I've adapted this recipe from Williams Sonoma Breakfast Cookbook.

Egg Souffle in a dish.

Eggs for breakfast, eggs for dinner, eggs for lunch … we definitely eat our fair share of eggs around here. And how can you blame us when eggs can so easily be reinvented a hundred times over whether you’re frying, boiling, scrambling, baking or poaching them.

So here’s yet another way to make eggs and, if you haven’t already tried this, definitely add it to your list the next time you’re entertaining guests. This dish will take a little extra time since you have to whip the egg whites, but the end result is oh-so-fluffy and delicious. And feel free to make this soufflé your own by adding bits of ham, cheese, herbs or even veggies. It’s the prefect weekend brunch treat!

    This turned out amazing!! We have chickens so I am always looking for new ways to make eggs more tasty. This recipe did not disappoint!! I did not have anything for filling so i just did the recipe without chees or ham…next time definitely going to try it with. It came out so fluffy!!

      1. Sorry to hear that you didn’t like it. What do you think could have been better? We are always up for revisiting recipes. – Nicole

    Thanks! This recipe made me appear as if I can cook. Made it for Mother’s Day breakfast and everyone loved it including my wife.

  3. This was so yummy and super easy to make! I added crumbled sharp cheese and dill to mine and it was delish! Thanks for the recipe!

  4. I am very new to true cooking. I tried this recipe and the souffle came out GREAT! I added shredded cheddar cheese and ham. As long as you beat the egg whites long enough and are gentle enough when you blend everything together (thoroughly!) this is an easy recipe to follow!

  5. I was searching for something to make for Christmas day brunch. Yep,I’m trying to get a jump start. I think I will try this but would like some suggestions for ‘herbs’ to add. I don’t want to add any ham as will have some organic bacon as a side, but cheese and possibly some herbs for flavor and would like some suggestions that would complement the eggs well.

      Hi Brenda. I would probably suggest herbs such as parsley, tarragon, chervil, or chives. You could also add some chili powder if you want to spice it up. Hope it works out well. Jill

  6. I just made this for dinner, so good! I put it into several ramekins vs one large dish, then reduced the cook time to 15 min. Thanks for the recipe!

  7. My 6 yrs old doesn’t like eggs but just started eating frittatas. So I’ll just this a try and see if she will eat this too. I’m tried so hard to reduce our beef consumption. Thanks as always!

  8. What other pan can I use if I don’t have a 9″ round? I have other round baking dishes but none are very tall.

      I get it at Earth Fare…it comes in a gold wrapper and is made by Organic Valley (and says “pastured” on the label, which means grass-fed).

  9. Woohoo! Made my first souffle tonight. Never even tasted one so wasn’t sure what to expect. The kids loved it. Definitely will do that again. Thanks!

  10. I did mix in the yolk mixture but perhaps not enough because this was my first souffle; I didn’t want to push the air out of the whites. The top was brown and very crusty after I did end up cooking it for an additional 5 minutes. This is just my first experience and didn’t know what the texture was supposed to look like cooked. I would say my whites were just still moist looking, but for sure not soupy.

      It should be light and fluffy but firm/set (not runny) once it is done and slightly cooled.

  11. I had the same experience as Katie. The top was brown and delicious looking and then when I broke into it… it was like raw egg soup. I ended up cooking it for an additional 20 min before the eggs were completely cooked. Maybe next time I’ll cook it in a 9×13 pan instead of a 9″ round. Any other ideas where I might have messed it up?

      I have made this recipe dozens of times and not experienced that same issue. Are you sure your oven temperature is calibrated correctly?

        I’ve never had trouble with my oven in baking other things. I will give it another try :-)

  12. I made this for breakfast today, and it seemed like at even 20 minutes, the egg white was not quite cooked at 20 minutes. How does the egg white look and feel on a cooked souffle?

  13. Love this recipe! Have made it twice this week since ham was our meat for the week & eggs are on sale. It even did well when I forgot to spoon it into the baking dish & poured it. My husband was impressed.

  14. I have a question about butter and ghee. Are these two things the same? Are they interchangable? Is ghee a healthier form of lard? Basically when would I use butter and when would I use ghee?


    1. Glee is clarified butter. Since all the milk solids and water is removed it has a much higher smoke point and is much better then using butter when used at a high temp.
