1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup milk
1/8 teaspoon paprika
3/4 teaspoon dry mustard
1-1/2 cups grated sharp cheddar cheese
6 eggs, separated
Preheat oven to 400°F. Melt the butter in a medium-size saucepan. Blend in the flour and stir over low heat until smooth. Add the milk, paprika, and mustard. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Add the grated cheese and stir until the cheese is melted. Remove from the heat. Add the unbeaten egg yolks, one at a time, beating after each addition. Let cool to room temperature. Beat the egg whites until stiff and fold into the mixture. Pour into a greased 1-1/2- to 2-quart soufflé dish or four 6-ounce ramekins. Put the soufflé in the oven, reduce the temperature to 375°F., and bake 30-35 minutes or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean.
