    4. In a saucepan over a medium heat, melt the butter. Stir in the flour and mustard powder and cook for 2 to 3 minutes until straw coloured. Whisking constantly, gradually add the milk and cook until thickened. Reduce the heat to low and add the cheese, stirring until melted.

In a separate bowl, whisk the egg whites until soft peaks form then gently fold into the mixture. Divide equally among the four ramekins.
