  Grated parmesan cheese 1 Tablespoon
  Dried chives 1 Tablespoon

2. In medium bowl, with electric mixer on high speed, beat egg whites until stiff but not dry.
3. In another medium bowl, with electric mixer on medium speed, beat egg yolks until thick and lemon-colored. Using rubber spatula, gently fold yolks, and remaining ingredients, into egg whites, until completely blended. Pour into prepared plate; smooth top to distribute mixture evenly.
