Turns out beautifully and I usually serve this with melon balls or wedges drizzled with honey!
Original recipe makes 6 servings
3 egg yolks
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground dry mustard
freshly ground black pepper to taste
ground cayenne pepper to taste
1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
1 egg white

2 tablespoons butter, softened
- Preheat broiler. Separate eggs and beat yolks lightly. Add salt, mustard, black pepper, and cayenne pepper, and beat until thick and pale color. Stir in Cheddar cheese. In a separate bowl, beat egg whites until soft peaks form; fold into cheese mixture.
