Preheat oven to 220C/425F/Gas 7 and grease four deep ramekin dishes with butter
In a medium pan, gently melt the butter and once melted vigorously stir the flour into the butter for two minutes, until the mixture leaves the sides of the pan.
Whisk in the milk until it has a smooth consistency.
Stir in the cheese until it melts, then the egg yolks and chives until well combined and season and set aside off the heat.
In a medium, clean, grease-free bowl, whip the egg whites until stiff.
Stir half the egg whites into the egg yolk mixture then carefully fold in the remaining egg whites.
