Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

Does this need to be baked or can I make a cheese sauce by adding some flour. It would probably be creamier without baking

I wouldn't think you'd want to eat raw egg whites however. It seems to me that baking would be necessary so that they're cooked.
