Cooking with Raney
Where is the EGG?
This is rich so small servings are recommended. This dish is a favorite of President Judy Rogers and her husband, Glenn. The apricot onion jam is optional yet it provides a nice balance to the richness of the creamy souffle. It can be made ahead 1-2 days and just brought to room temperature before serving. The jam is also very good with grilled or roast pork.
1 cup Onion, finely chopped
1 (8oz.) pkg. Cream Cheese, softened
3/4 cup Grated Parmesan
1/3 cup Real Mayonnaise
1Egg (Just added to official recipe!)
Pat dry the chopped onion with a towel. Mix all ingredients in a bowl, stirring well to blend. Spread mixture evenly into a lightly-oiled 8"by 8" pan. Bake in a 425F preheated oven for 15 minutes or until golden brown on top. Cut into squares and top each serving with a teaspoon or so of jam (optional).
