Directions

  • 1. Preheat oven to 200ºC/180ºC fan-forced. Grease 4 x 300ml, deep ramekins with melted butter. Place on a baking tray.
  • 2. Melt chopped butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add flour. Cook, stirring constantly, for 1 minute or until smooth and bubbling. Remove from heat. Gradually whisk in milk. Return to heat. Stir over medium-low heat until mixture is smooth and comes to the boil. Boil for 1 minute. Remove from heat. Set aside to cool for 5 minutes. Transfer mixture to a large bowl.
  • 3. Whisk cheese, mustard and egg yolks into milk mixture. Season with salt and pepper. Using an electric mixer, beat egg whites in a separate bowl until soft peaks form. Using a large metal spoon, stir 1/4 egg white through cheese mixture. Gently fold in remaining egg white. Spoon into prepared dishes. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes until risen and golden. Serve immediately.
