1 cup water1/2 cup butter
1 cup flour
1/2 tsp Italian seasoning
1/4 tsp garlic salt
1 1/2 cup sharp cheddar cheese, shredded (or use Pepper-Jack cheese)
2 TBS chopped fresh chives
Heat oven to 400. Line baking sheets with parchment paper or lightly spray baking sheets with no-stick cooking spray.
Combine water and butter in a 2-quart saucepan. Cook over medium heat until mixture comes to a boil (5-7 min.). Add flour, Italian seasoning and garlic salt. Stir vigorously until mixture forms a ball. Remove from heat. Beat in eggs, one at a time, until smooth. Stir in 1 cup cheese and chives.
Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls onto baking sheets. Top each with about 1/2 tsp. of the remaining cheese. Bake for 18-22 minutes or until puffed and browned. Serve warm or at room temperature.
*To make ahead and freeze, bake as directed. When completely cooled, place baking sheets in freezer until puffs are frozen. Then place puffs in a Ziploc freezer bag or container; return to freezer. To reheat, place puffs on baking sheet; bake at 350 for 8-10 minutes or until heated through.
