Easy Cheese, Potato and Ham Soufflé

“Serve this as an impressive starter or a light main meal - it has an unsusual combination of cheese, ham and potatoes. Soufflés are easy to make - honestly! The only real criteria is that they are served immediately and that the bowl used for whisking the egg whites is oil and grease free.....but even that is not that essential. I sometimes add bacon instead of the ham - just brown and crisp it up first, and then crumble it before adding.”
