Souffle? Suuuure.

Everything on the Kraft Foods website is easy to make.  Sometimes TOO easy.  I've grown weary of some of their multiple choice dinners.  Been there, done that. I made Enchiladas darnit, from scratch darnit, with two children awake at the Witching hour [I love you Rants from Mommyland] darnit and BY MYSELF DARNIT. I was abandoned by the male species. Grumble.
Ok so I was looking for a breakfasty idea on the kraft site because I just couldn't get creative with scrambled eggs for breakfast AGAIN.  I stumbled on this recipe for Cheese Souffle.

Suuuuure, why not.  I'm hungry now. I can wait another hour to eat.  *tummy grumbles loudly*
Everything from the Kraft website is E.A.S.Y.  as long as you have an electric mixer.
I cut the recipe in half. The Monkey will have some for lunch and I only have 4 eggs left anyway. Plus it says serve immediately.  I only have myself to serve really.  I never really get hot meals these days anyhow.  What a treat!

That looks like 1/2 of a 1/3 of a cup, right??

Have I mentioned that I have NO natural light in my kitchen 98% of the day.

This is pretty easy so far. What exactly is the big 'to-do' about Souffles anyhow?

DISCLAIMER: Foul Language ahead.

Screw-you EGG WHITES.  Never again.

Oh yeah. An electric mixer. [See P.S. at bottom of post] I haven't need one yet for any of my recipes.  I just put a little extra elbow grease into it, its like EXTREME CHEF SCHOOL OF HARD KNOX. Hahahaha
Ok so I freaking made those egg whites my bitch. This ONE time. And don't you FORGET IT.

I can't say that I was particularly impressed.  I put way too much work into them and they just tasted like eggs.  Not nearly enough Cayenne to even taste and where the hell was the cheese? I used Colby Jack instead of cheddar but apparently not enough. Baaaah. Oh well. I suppose I'll call it a success due to the fact that they did in fact appear to be Souffles.  The flavor was unimpressive, I really anticipated something else I guess. I'd go look for a new recipe elsewhere but not until I get that electric mixer.

I clearly did not focus properly.

Quick get another shot before they deflate. Darn you auto-focus. Great shot of the glass bowl. 
*Shakes head in shame*

P.S.     Oh wait don't have an electric mixer.  I have a single gal's electric mixer, you know the kind of single gal that doesn't actually USE her kitchen.  Yes that was me, um I got it as a gift? um, ten years ago.  Huuuuuubs... I know what I want for my biirrrrrrrrthdaaaaaaay......
