In a thick and deep pot, heat the milk. When boiling, add the butter cut in pieces and 1 teaspoon of salt.

Remove from the heat and add the flour all at once.

Mix quickly and let it dry for one minute at low heat.

Let it cool a bit, then add the eggs one by one, mixing well between each egg. Add the grated cheese, nutmeg, salt and pepper.

To make the sauce, melt the butter in a pan, add the chopped shallot and cook for 1 minute. Add the paprika and the cream and set aside.

Place the mixture in a piping bag with a straight nozzle and gently squeeze. With a knife, cut little half-inch dumplings and place in boiling, salted water. Cook until they float then strain with a spider and place in the baking dishes you previously buttered.

Pour the sauce and sprinkle with the grated cheese. Bake at 190C for 3-4 minutes.
