Step 1

In small pot on low heat melt butter, stir in the flour, salt, and cayenne until well blended and smooth. Increase heat to medium, add milk and keep stirring until mixture thickens and bubbles. Remove from heat and add cheese and stir until it's melted and well mixed in.

Step 2

Beat egg yolks until very thick and lemon coloured. If in doubt beat a couple minutes longer. Slowly add cheese mixture, stirring constantly until well blended.

Step 3

Beat egg whites to stiff peaks. Gradually pour cheese mixture over while gently folding it in until it's just barely blended in.

Step 4

Pour into UNGREASED 2 quart souffle dish or round casserole. Bake at 300* for 1 1/4 hours. A knife inserted off- centre should come out clean. Enjoy!
