Mushroom And Spinach Breakfast Puffs

These easy soufflé-like puffs make a great breakfast or brunch for guests. Like soufflés, they’ll begin to sink quickly after baking, but they will still be delicious. You can sprinkle them with grated parmesan before serving if you like.

Prep
Cook
Serves 4people
Ingredients
4
large eggs, separated, plus 1 egg white
1/2
tsp fine sea salt
1/2
tsp ground black pepper
1/4
tsp grated nutmeg
1
cup milk
1/2
lb cremini mushrooms, trimmed
1
tbs unsalted butter, plus extra for the ramekins
1/2
cup thawed frozen chopped spinach, squeezed dry
Directions
1.
Place egg yolks, salt, pepper and nutmeg in a large bowl and whisk until smooth. Heat milk in a medium saucepan until bubbles form around edges. Slowly whisk hot milk into yolks. Pour the mixture back into the saucepan, place over medium-low heat, and cook, stirring with a wooden spoon, until it thickens slightly, 3 to 4 minutes. Immediately pour back into the bowl in which you whisked the egg yolks.
2.
Place mushrooms in a food processor and pulse until very finely chopped. Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add mushrooms and cook, stirring frequently, until very soft and most of the liquid has been released and evaporated, about 8 minutes. Remove from heat and add spinach. Stir into yolk mixture.
3.
Preheat the oven to 375°F. Butter 6 (6-ounce) or 4 (10-ounce) ramekins or mini soufflé dishes and place on a baking sheet. Beat egg whites in a clean bowl until they form stiff (but not dry) peaks. Stir a dollop of whites into yolk mixture, then gently fold in remaining whites. Spoon mixture into ramekins, filling them completely and leveling the tops. Bake until puffed and nicely browned on top, about 25 minutes for smaller puffs and 30 minutes for larger ones. Serve immediately.
