Makes 4 ramekins Difficulty
1/4 cup unsalted butter 1/4 cup gf flour 1-1/4 cups hot milk 1/2 cup gruyére cheese, grated 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese, grated Salt and freshly ground black pepper 2 eggs, separated
Preheat the oven to 400°F.
Melt the butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Gradually stir in the gf flour. Remove from heat and pour in the hot milk in a steady stream, stirring constantly to prevent lumps from forming. Stir in the cheeses and season to taste with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Pour mixture into a bowl and let cool. Add egg yolks to the milk and cheese mixture.
Beat the egg whites until they hold stiff peaks. Fold the egg whites into the milk and cheese mixture. Spoon into 4 greased ramekins. Place ramekins into a baking dish. Pour enough hot water into the baking dish to come about half way up the sides of the ramekins. Bake at 400°F for 30 minutes or until set. Remove from the oven and let stand for a couple of minutes. Serve immediately.
This is a light great starter to an elegant dinner.
