3 tablespoons of butter or margarine
3 tablespoons of all purpose flour
3/4 cup of milk
1/4 cup of half and half
1/8 teaspoon of white pepper
1/2 teaspoon of salt
1/2 teaspoon of Dijon style mustard
1/4 teaspoon of prepared horseradish
4 large eggs, separated
1/2 cup (2 oz.) shredded Swiss cheese
6 ounces of crabmeat, picked over
1/8 teaspoon of cream of tartar
