I don’t think I have ever heard the word “whiffle” except in the title of this recipe. A little definition, courtesy Peg Bracken. accompanies the recipe: “A whiffle is a soufflé that any fool can make.” So if a soufflé has ever daunted you, here is where to begin.

Shrimp and Cheese Filling

Source:Whole Foods for the Whole Family
Date tried:July 6, 2017
Yield: 5 servings
Time needed: 15-20 minutes

Prior preparation needed:
Cook shrimp ahead of time

Provided the shrimp is already cooked, this is a fast, fairly easy lunch treat. I was unhappy with the colour and texture of the cheese sauce. I am doubtful about the proportions of butter, flour and white wine. The dark not-very-cheesy colour is likely due to using whole wheat rather than unbleached flour or possibly to letting the butter brown. So not the best effect this time, but worth trying again with amendments to the method.
