Cook one cup of macaroni until tender; drain. Saute 1 small chopped onion in margarine until tender. Add 2 Tbs. cornstarch and 2 cups nonfat milk; cook and stir until thick and bubbly. Reduce heat and cook 2 to 3 minutes longer.
Add 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese and 2 cups frozen corn to the onion mixture, stirring until the cheese melts. Remove from heat. Separate 4 eggs. Beat egg yolks and slowly add the cheese mixture. Stir constantly. Fold in drained macaroni.
In a separate bowl, beat egg whites and 1/4 tsp. cream of tartar until stiff peaks form. Fill 8 oven proof mugs (coffee mugs work well), 1/4 full with the cheese and macaroni mixture. Top with a heaping spoonful of egg white to form clouds. Place mugs on a baking sheet and bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes, or until golden brown.
