Where is the EGG?

ONION SOUFFLE                                                               

8-12 servings


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).
