About the recipe

This is clearly not a traditional souffle, which is a delicate thing with egg whites at its base. This dish, rather than light and fluffy, is comforting and warm. It's no wonder it's an American classic. 

Serves: 16

Hands On Time: 10 minutes

Total Time: 1 hour and 5 minutes


2 (8-ounce) packages low-fat cream cheese

1 cup mayonnaise

1 1/2 cups grated Parmesan cheese

1 tablespoon white wine

1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce

1 teaspoon Tabasco

1 teaspoon garlic powder

1 1/2 cups chopped onions (fresh or frozen; thaw and squeeze out excess liquid)

1 tablespoon chopped chives or green onions (or dried chives)

1/2 cup of crispy fried onions (optional)


Heat oven to 350 degrees.

In a large bowl, combine the cream cheese, mayonnaise, Parmesan cheese, Worcestershire, Tabasco, garlic powder and chopped onions until well-combined.

Pour into a 2- or 3-quart casserole dish. Sprinkle with the chives and press lightly so they adhere to the mixture. Bake 50 to 55 minutes, until the middle is set. 

Serve warm topped with crispy fried onions (optional) and with crackers, pita and tortilla chips for dipping.
