Measure Ingredient
7 tablespoons Butter
2 tablespoons Fine dry bread crumbs
6 tablespoons Flour
1½ cup Milk
Salt
6 Egg yolks
¾ cup Roquefort; crumbled
⅓ cup Cream cheese
7 Egg whites

Grease souffle dish with 1 tablespoon butter and sprinkle with bread crumbs as if dusting with flour. Invert dish to release excess crumbs.

Add to flour-butter mixture. When fully incorporated and very thick, beat in egg yolks 1 at a time. Add crumbled Roquefort and cream cheese, stirring over low heat to incorporate well. Set aside. Whip egg whites and cornstarch until stiff peaks form. Fold ¼ of whites into cheese mixture. Fold in remaining whites. Spoon into prepared souffle dish.

Bake at 375 degrees 45 minutes to 1 hour or until thin metal tester or toothpick comes out clean. Yields 6 to 8 servings.
