Your guests will simply love this cheese soufflé as a starter or side dish with a fresh salad or a meat menu. The mix of potatoes and real cheese make it a wholesome and satisfying meal.


Wash potatoes. Crack eggs open and separate. Grate Oldenburger Gouda coarsely. Wash herbs, pat dry and chop finely. Butter portion-sized ramekins and dust with breadcrumbs. Heat oven to 200 °C.

The Potatoes

Boil potatoes in their skin until well cooked, drain and peel. While still hot, press potatoes through a potato press into a large bowl. Season with salt. Add egg yolks one by one and mix under the potatoes. Add 60 g Oldenburger Butter, grated Oldenburger Gouda and chopped herbs. Season with salt and pepper.

Preparing the Soufflé

Next, whisk egg whites until stiff and fold under the potato mixture. Fill mixture into ramekins and bake in the oven for 30-35 minutes until golden brown.

The Final Touch

Place ramekins on a serving dish with some lingonberry jam and serve.
