Bring the mixture to a boil, then add the tomatoes and the 3 egg yolks, stirring briskly. Remove from fire, let it cool a little and fold in the stiffly beaten egg whites. Pour into an oven-proof soufflé dish that has been well-greased with butter Put a buttered band of paper around top of dish. 30 minutes.
