Preheat the oven to 180°C.

Cut the cheese into small cubes.

Place the milk and butter into a saucepan and add two pinches of salt.

Bring to the boil, then remove from the heat and fold in the flour using a spatula.

Return the saucepan to a medium heat and stir continuously for around 5 minutes until a paste is formed.

Then remove from the heat and add the whole eggs, one by one, then the cheese.
