Honey Chicken Souffle

Nom nom nom.
There are a couple of processes here but they are simple and the result is good. I essentially made a double batch of Cheese Souffle with Crab and Prosciutto but stuck sausage meat in it. These were helped by the fact that the butcher over the road, does awesome everything - particularly sausages. Hooray! Happy kids!

8 eggs, separated
1 small onion in small dice
2 cloves garlic minced
100 gms butter
6 tbs flour
2 cups milk
4 tbs parmesan
1 tbs blue cheese
3 tbs Tasty or other grated cheese
3 honey chicken sausages

Preheat an oven to 180C. Grease 8 ramekins with a little of the butter. Remove the skins from the sausages and fry the minced met in a frying pan, breaking them up as finely as you can as you go. Beat the egg whites to soft peaks. Make a white sauce by sautéing the onion and garlic with the remaining butter over a medium low heat until translucent. Strain the butter through a fine sieve to remove the onions then return the butter to the pan, discard the onion. Add the flour to the butter and cook, stirring for 4 or 5 minutes. Pour in the milk. Continue cooking until it thickens like thickened cream. Stir the white sauce and cheese together until the cheese melts then mix through the egg yolks and chicken. Semi-carefully stir through half of the egg white. Carefully stir though the remaining egg white then spoon into the ramekins until 3/4 full. Bake for 20 minutes or until golden on top.
Served with a salad.
