Whisk in yolks 1 at a time. Whisk in mustard and salt. Season with pepper. (Can be made 2 hours ahead. Dot top with butter and let stand at room temperature. Before continuing, rewarm over low heat until just lukewarm, stirring constantly.) Add corn, cheese and chives.

Using clean dry beaters, beat whites and pinch of salt until stiff but not dry. Stir ¼ of whites into yolk mixture to lighten. Gently fold in remaining whites. Spoon into prepared dish. Place in oven.  Reduce temperature to 375°F and bake until puffed and golden on top and soufflé still moves slightly when top is gently touched, about 30 mins. Serve hot.
