- 2 eggs separated

- 1 tablespoon minced fresh chive

MethodIn skillet, heat 1 tbsp (15 mL) of the butter over medium-high heat; sauté mushrooms with half each of the salt and pepper until golden and no liquid remains, about 5 minutes. Set aside.
In saucepan, melt remaining butter over medium heat; stir in flour and cook, whisking, for 2 minutes. Slowly whisk in milk and remaining salt and pepper; cook, whisking, until boiling and thickened, about 3 minutes.
In large bowl, whisk egg yolks; slowly whisk in milk mixture and let stand for 10 minutes.
In separate bowl, beat egg whites until soft peaks form. Gently fold half into cooled egg yolk mixture; fold in remaining egg whites. Fold in mushrooms, cheese and chives. Divide between two greased 10 oz (300 mL) ramekins.
