Three cheese souffle.

At last, after two days of being sick, I finally got to make the souffles from those beautiful eggs I had. They came out beautifully and everyone in the family loved the taste and texture.

Have you ever seen a twice-baked souffle recipe, well I think it is just a souffle recipe gone flat and someone saved the moment, by turning the souffle upside done, dress it with more cheese and voila! – a twice-baked souffle.
