Today, we’re celebrating our Haute Hostess Girlfriend in the National Girlfriend Awards. While there are those of us who can burn frozen waffles in a toaster, the Haute Hostess Girlfriend is known for her carefully crafted and sinfully delicious culinary concoctions. But, then there are some dishes so complicated that even Betty Crocker could screw them up. Below, I’m bringing you five difficult recipes—send this post over to your Haute Hostess Girlfriend and extend the challenge, then tell us why SHE is your Haute Hostess Girlfriend in the National Girlfriend Awards.
In French, soufflé means to puff or blow up…and the perfect puffy top is exactly what’s so darn hard about this delicious but daunting dish. Alton Brown’s Cheese Souffle (on FoodNetwork.com) is rated at the “difficult” level for a reason—delectable ingredients like parmesan, butter, eggs, cheddar and more seem deceivingly easy…until you look at the directions! First off, you need a soufflé mold, and the instructions call for a lot of whisking and specific consistencies. If you can get everything just right, you’ll have an awesome savory dish to serve…so good luck!
