Then, on medium speed on a stand mixer beat the egg whites and salt until the mixture turns fully glossy and firm.

Next, stir a small amount of the whites into the bowl with the cheese mixture to lighten the cheese mixture overall. Then fold in remaining whites gently but thoroughly.

Now, divide soufflé mixture among ramekins and smooth tops with a knife or spatula. Bake the soufflés on a baking sheet until puffed and golden about 16-18 minutes.

Remove from oven top with extra cheese and chives if you have them. Devour immediately.
