Ingredients

Directions

  1. 1 of 6 Bring large pot of water to a boil. Add spinach and scallions, stirring and submerging until wilted, about 2 minutes. Drain well. When cool enough to handle, squeeze out excess water. Finely chop.
  2. 2 of 6 Melt butter in medium-size saucepan over medium heat. Sprinkle with 3 tablespoons flour; whisk until blended and cooked slightly, about 1 minute. Add milk, whisking to prevent lumps. Bring to a low boil over medium heat, about 3 minutes, whisking in 1 teaspoon salt, the nutmeg and cayenne. Remove saucepan from heat. Whisk in cheese; let cool slightly.
  3. 3 of 6 Heat oven to 375 degrees F. Lightly coat eight (7-ounce) oval baking dishes or 10-cup oval or souffle dish with nonstick cooking spray. Sprinkle with bread crumbs, tilting dish to coat.
  4. 4 of 6 Whisk half the cheese mixture into egg yolks in large bowl. With wooden spoon, vigorously stir in remaining cheese mixture and the spinach and scallions.
  5. 5 of 6 With clean beaters, beat together egg whites, remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt and the lemon juice in large clean bowl until stiff peaks form. Sift remaining 3 tablespoons flour over egg whites and gently fold in. Stir a quarter of beaten egg whites into spinach mixture to lighten. Gently fold in remaining whites. Spoon about 1 cup into each individual dish or scrape whole amount into souffle dish. Place individual dishes on baking sheet.
  6. 6 of 6 Bake individual souffles in 375 degree F oven until golden brown and puffed, 20 to 25 minutes, or 35 to 40 minutes for souffle dish. Serve immediately. Makes 8 individual souffles or 1 large souffle.
