Ingredients

  • 1 cup extra-thick rolled oats
  • 3 cups whole milk
  • 4 Tbsp granulated sugar or turbinado
  • pinch salt
  • 3 eggs, separated
  • 1 1/2 cups mixed berries blueberries, raspberries and blackberries
  • 1/2 tsp lemon zest
  • powdered sugar for dusting optional
  • maple syrup optional
  • extra berries for garnish

Instructions

  • In a saucepan, add oats, milk, sugar and salt, and bring to a simmer over MED-HIGH heat. Once it’s simmering, reduce heat to MED/MED-LOW and cook, stirring occasionally, until mixture is thickened to an oatmeal or porridge consistency. This should take about 15-20 minutes.
  • While cooking the oats, preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Butter a 2-quart baking dish or 9-10” cast iron skillet and set aside.
  • Remove oatmeal mixture from heat and let cool slightly.
  • Quickly stir the egg yolks and lemon zest into the oatmeal. Stir in the berries.
  • In a mixing bowl, add the egg whites and beat on MED speed with a hand mixer for about 3-5 minutes, or until semi-stiff peaks form.
  • Carefully and gently fold the egg whites into the oatmeal until just combined.
  • Transfer mixture to prepared baking dish/skillet and bake 30 minutes, until golden brown and puffed up.  Souffle will sink after pan is removed from the oven, it’s okay, it’s supposed to do that.
  • If desired, sprinkle with powdered sugar, drizzle with maple syrup and garnish with additional berries.

Notes

Recipe from Food & Wine magazine (March 2016 issue)
MAKE AHEAD INSTRUCTIONS:
Go ahead and cook your oats, milk, sugar and salt to the oatmeal/porridge consistency, let cool, then refrigerate for up to 2-3 days.
When ready to bake, rewarm the oatmeal with a splash of milk to loosen the oatmeal a bit, then continue with the rest of the recipe.
