"As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy, and to make plans."--Ernest Hemingway

Ingredients:

Directions:
Directions:
Preheat oven to 325
Spray 9"X13" pan with Pam
Bake 45 minutes to an hour

Combine egg yolks with chilis, cheese, cream, and onion flakes.

Beat egg whites until there is a stiff peak when you lift the beater. Put a large spoonful of beaten egg whites into the egg yolk mixture, combining to make the egg mixture lighter. Then add the beaten egg whites all at once to the egg yolk mixture; start at one edge of the bowl, take the spatula all the way to the bottom of the mixture, fold. Turn and repeat until all the egg whites are gently incorporated.

Gently spread into the prepared pan; bake until lightly brown at the edges and set in the center. It can be tested by lightly sliding the tip of a sharp knife into the center. The knife tip should come out clean if the souffle is done.

Personal Notes:
Sunny Van Eaton, Godmother to both Jeff and Mark, was a singer. My mother was her first voice teacher, in Laramie, WY. Sunny taught voice at Oklahoma State University. Though quite adept at cooking she chose to have just a few "signature" dishes. This one was quick, easy, and tasty. She used it as a main dish, which was served with salad.
