How to make it
- Take eggs from fridge and separate. Place whites in mixing bowl and let come to room temperature. (Note eggs are easier to separate when cold and have less of a chance to break the egg yolk than when they are at room temperature.)
- Beat up egg yolks by hand and set aside for a moment.
- To start on your white sauce, melt butter, add salt and pepper(s) in your sauce pan over medium heat. Once melted add flour.
- Whisk till combined, then slowly add milk.
- Add 1/4 of the milk at a time, whisking it in at every step - this ensures a lump-free sauce.
- Up the heat, stirring constantly (hey this is exercise - I know) continue cooking till bubbles form and sauce is thick and creamy.
- Turn off heat and let cool slightly.
- To white sauce in pan, add both cans of corn, lemon juice, grated/minced onion and beaten egg yolks and the couple of shakes of worcestershire sauce along with the dash of crushed red pepper (optional) . Set aside to cool.
- Now onto those egg whites, no need for fear here peeps! Put down that mix-master beaters onto the bowl of egg whites, and beat egg whites till frothy (2 minutes) then add cream of tarter.
- Continue beating egg whites till stiff (they hold their peaks if you took a spoon and stirred them up) not dry.
- Fold egg whites using a spatula into white sauce corn mixture.
- Butter up your casserole dish, tell the dish it's beautiful and it will do a fantastic job now on your corn soufflé.
- Put the completed mixture into your buttered casserole dish which is feeling confident now that you've buttered it up a little.
- Place casserole into oven and bake one hour.
- Call troops to dinner table.
- Once they are all seated, (make sure that trivet is handy now) take out from the oven, your corn soufflé and relish all the ooh and ahhs.
- Scoop out servings to your guests and enjoy this great dish, perfect when serving along baked ham.
