Potato and Rosemary Souffle

Why have the same old side dish when you can make this lovely Potato and Rosemary Souffle recipe to add an extra kick to any dinner or party.

Hi Bold Bakers!

When you think of side dishes, some people always think of the same potatoes and vegetables. But did you ever think of a soufflé to go alongside your meal? Well I’m about to jazz things up for you with my easy Potato and Rosemary Soufflé.

Being Irish, I have eaten my fair share of potatoes alongside my dinner. I have seen them prepared every single way you can possibly imagine, stuffed, gratin, Saint Ann and piped. They are all delicious in their own right but a Potato Soufflé really stands out from the crowd where side dishes are concerned.

Although you don’t always think savory when you think souffles, prepare to see it in a different light. Soufflés make delicious desserts so why wouldn’t they make tasty savory dishes? This light and fluffy soufflé is loaded with cheddar cheese and rosemary. It is the perfect match to be paired with meat at dinner time or even as a snack by itself.

I created this recipe for The Inspired Home website. It’s a place where I go to find out what new products are coming out along with tips and fantastic recipes. The Inspired Home’s mission is to inspire, inform and encourage you to make your house into a home, lead a balanced and healthy lifestyle and to create moments to celebrate and connect with your friends and family.

I made these Potato and Rosemary Soufflés using some new pieces of kitchen equipment. One of the best pieces of equipment you can have in your kitchen is a hand mixer. Invest in one and you will have it for a lifetime. I chose the KitchenAid Hand Mixer because they stand the test of time.

And my gorgeous Staub Mini Cocottes  make for beautiful presentation and are perfect for single servings.

I hope this Potato and Rosemary Soufflé becomes your new go-to side dish for dinner or for any special event.

Hi Gemma ,
These look amazing and I’d like to get them right. So I’m wondering, does the mashed potato need to be cold when making these soufflés?
Thanks for all the cooking tips and inspiration ????

Gemma, I love your recipes and how you make baking so easy! I have a request. I recently went to furrs fresh buffet with my in laws. They have this dish that they call (sweet) carrot casserole which is amazing!! It’s so good, you could put it in a pie! I have looked up the recipe, which it is actually a souffle, but I trust your cooking and hoped you could recreate the dish?

I’ve started baking many of your recipes and love, love, love them. Your crazy bread is amazing and I’ve added so many different variations of my own. You make everything so quick and easy. Going to make your pumpkin pie recipe tomorrow. Thank you so much for sharing your great talent.

I don’t know if it’s just me or if perhaps everyone else experiencing issues with your website.
It appears as though some of the text on your content are running off the screen. Can somebody else please comment and let me know if this is happening to them
too? This could be a problem with my web browser because I’ve had
this happen previously. Cheers

your recipes look delicious but when I print them it is hard to read them….especially the soufflés….print is much to light

I love the idea of individual servings, but if you don’t have these or similar containers, could you bake this in one casserole dish?
