Heat oven to 400°F. Line baking sheets with parchment paper or lightly spray baking sheets with no-stick cooking spray.
Combine water and butter in 2-quart saucepan. Cook over medium heat 5-7 minutes until mixture comes to a boil. Add flour, Italian seasoning and garlic salt. Stir vigorously until mixture forms a ball. Remove from heat. Add 1 egg at a time, beating after each addition until smooth. Stir in 1 cup cheese and chives.
Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls onto prepared baking sheets. Top each with about 1/2 teaspoon remaining cheese. Bake 18-22 minutes or until puffed and browned. Serve warm.
*Substitute 1/8 teaspoon each dried basil leaves, dried marjoram leaves and dried oregano leaves, and a dash of rubbed sage.
- To make ahead, bake as directed. When completely cooled, place baking sheets in freezer until puffs are frozen. Place frozen puffs in resealable plastic freezer bags or containers; return to freezer. To reheat, place puffs onto baking sheet; bake at 350°F, 8-10 minutes or until heated through.
