Ingredients:  
6 tablespoons unsalted butter, plus more to butter a 6 cup gratin dish
6 tablespoons all purpose flour
2 cups cold whole milk
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
5 extra large eggs
2 1/3 cups grated Gruyere cheese (about 6 ounces), can substitute Swiss cheese
3 tablespoons minced fresh chives (or scallion tops)

Directions:
Directions:
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

Butter a 6-cup gratin dish and set it aside. Melt the butter in a saucepan, then add the flour and mix it well with a whisk. Cook for 10-15 seconds, and add the milk all at once, and quickly mix it well with a whisk. Keep stirring with the whisk until the mixture thickens and comes to a strong boil, which will take about 2 minutes. It should be thick and smooth. Remove from the heat and stir in the salt and pepper. Allow about 10 minutes for this white sauce to cool.

Meanwhile, break the eggs into a bowl and beat well with a fork. Check that the sauce is cool. When it is, add the eggs the cheese and the chives to the cooled sauce, and mix it well to combine. Pour into the buttered gratin dish and cook immediately, or set it aside until ready to cook.

Bake for 30-40 minutes or until the souffle is puffy and well browned on top. Although it will stay inflated for quite awhile, it is better to serve it right away.
