Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C). Lightly butter the ramekins and line the bottoms with circles of parchment paper.
  2. Melt the butter in a medium saucepan over medium-low heat. Whisk in the flour and cook for 1 minute. Whisk in the milk. Cook, whisking often, until the sauce comes to a boil and thickens. Let cool slightly.
  3. Beat in the egg yolks and goat cheese. Season generously with salt and pepper. Beat the egg whites until soft peaks form. Stir about one-fourth of the whites into the cheese mixture, then fold in the remainder. Spoon into ramekins.
  4. Place the ramekins in a roasting pan and add enough hot water to come halfway up the sides of the ramekins. Bake for 15 minutes, or until firm to the touch. Remove from the pan and let cool. Run a dinner knife around the edge of each soufflé and turn out onto an oiled baking sheet; remove the paper.
  5. Increase the oven temperature to 400°F (200°C). Bring the cream, mustard, and pepper to a boil in a saucepan. Simmer over medium heat about 12 minutes, until reduced by half. Top the soufflés with equal amounts of the cream mixture and sprinkle with the Parmesan. Bake for 20-25 minutes, until golden. Serve immediately.
