Serves 2


4 eggs, separated

3/4 tsp salt

1/4 tsp freshly ground pepper

1/8 tsp freshly ground nutmeg

2 tbsp butter, softened

2 tbsp flour, for dusting


Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Brush the inside of a medium sized soufflé baking dish with softened butter and lightly dust with flour.

Separate the eggs. Whisk the whites until stiff.

Whisk the yolks until creamy and add seasonings.

Fold in eggs whites to yolk mixture and transfer to the prepared baking dish.

Bake at 375 degrees for six minutes until golden.


You can add minced fresh herbs such as chives, chervil, parsley or tarragon to the yolk mixture. You can also add gruyere cheese finely grated or your cheese of choice. A red wine butter sauce (see recipe below) with shaved fresh truffles is the ultimate option!

Red Wine Butter Sauce

1/4 ounce red wine vinegar

2 tbsp minced shallots

4 tbsp butter, unsalted and softened

In a medium sauce pan over medium high heat, place red wine, red wine vinegar and minced shallots. Reduce this mixture until almost dry.

Season to taste.

Spoon into the center of the omelette souffle and serve immediately.


Shave thinly sliced black perigord or white alba truffles over the souffle when serving
