Blintz Souffle Recipe

This classic Jewish American dish is always a crowd-pleaser.

Blintz souffle is synonymous with easy, classic Ashkenazi-Jewish-American comfort food. The ingredient list isn’t long, the steps are very simple but the result is pure, creamy indulgence. Plus, this dish calls for frozen blintzes for extra ease. Many American Jewish families serve this for Yom Kippur break fast, but I think its also a great dish for a meal train, brunch or even Passover, as there are several brands that sell kosher-for-Passover frozen blintzes.

  • Susan

    With the orange juice does it give it an orange flavor . Can I use and flavored Blintz?

  • Hj

    After running out of plain blintzes, I had no choice to use fruit filled (apple). GREAT!

  • Fern

    I make this all the time. The changes to the recipe that make to make is lower in calories are: 1. Use 4 eggs; 2. Use 1/4 cup sugar; 3. Use 1/4 cup orange juice (imparts no discernible flavor); 4. Use 1 cup fat-free Greek yogurt instead of sour cream (I use Fage); 5. Instead of using butter, just spray each blintz with olive oil/PAM. I promise that the changes make no difference in the outcome!

    I’ve been making this recipe for many, many years and it is always perfect. But I do bake it at 375 degrees for the first 15 minutes, then lower to 350 degrees. Seems to set the souffle better.

    I have made it endless times. Always a huge hit and so easy. The orange juice does not give it a noticeable flavor. I have made it with both cheese blintzes and fruit ones. All delicious, so just pick your preference.

  • Ellen

    I’ve made this for many years. When I use the cheese blintz, I make a sauce of either blueberries or raspberries as an accompaniment. That way, guests can choose to add the fruit if they’d like.

    Thank you, Fern, for the alternative, lower calorie version…I was about to pass up on this one, thinking that the serving of blintzes, alone, would be filling/caloric enough for one meal, until I saw your post. I am now more likely to make this.

Keep on Noshing
