    2 Tbsp. unsalted butter
    3 Tbsp. all-purpose flour
    3/4 cup skim milk
    1 1/2 cups shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
    4 large eggs, separated, plus 1 large egg white
    1/4 tsp. salt
    1 1/4 tsp. paprika
    1 1/2 cups cooked white rice
    1/4 tsp. cream of tarter


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Butter or spray with cooking spray a 3-quart round souffle` or other baking dish.
In a saucepan over medium heat, melt butter. Whisk in flour until smooth. Whisking constantly, slowly pour in milk and cook until thick and bubbling, about 3 minutes.
Reduce heat to low and stir in cheese until melted; remove from heat.
In a bowl, stir together egg yolks, salt and 1 tsp. paprika. Whisk in cheese sauce and rice. In another bowl, with an electric mixer on high speed, beat egg whites with cream of tarter until stiff but still glossy. Stir 1/4 of beaten egg whites into rice mixture to lighten, then gently fold in remaining egg whites. Spoon into prepared dish and dust with remaining 1/4 tsp. paprika. Bake until puffy, golden brown and just set in the center, 45 to 50 minutes. Serve immediately.
