This recipe is adapted from Delia's Happy Christmas
Begin by heating the butter in a small saucepan, then stir in the chopped spring onion and cook gently for 5 minutes. Then remove from the heat and stir in the soured cream and yoghurt.
Now beat the egg yolks into the sauce and add the potatoes. Lastly stir in all but 1 dessertspoon of each of the cheeses then season with a little salt and about ¼ teaspoon of cayenne pepper and the nutmeg then transfer to a large bowl.
In a separate (grease-free) bowl, whisk the egg whites until soft peaks (see Video Techniques: Perfect Egg Whites) and stir one large spoonful into the cheese mixture to slacken it and make it easier to fold in the rest using a large kitchen spoon.
Taste for seasoning before carefully folding in the remaining egg white.
Pour the whole lot into the soufflé dish with the help of a rubber spatula and sprinkle the top with the extra Cheddar and Parmesan and a sprinkling of cayenne pepper.
Place on the pre-heated baking tray and bake near the centre on the oven for 30 minutes or until well risen and golden brown.
Serve as soon as possible (it will shrink a bit on the way to the table but even when shrunken and cold it still tastes good!).
