Heat oven to 400°F.

Add eggs, 1 at a time, stirring after each until blended. Stir in remaining ingredients. Drop dough by level tablespoons, about 2 inches apart, into 17 mounds on baking sheets sprayed with cooking spray.
Bake 20 min. or until puffed and golden brown. Turn oven off. Leave gougeres in oven 5 min. Serve warm.
Balance out your food choices throughout the day so you can make room for these cheddary treats.
Gougeres can be made ahead of time. Cool completely. Freeze in single layer in shallow pans. Once frozen, store in airtight container up to 1 month. When ready to serve, reheat in 375°F oven 8 to 10 min. or until gougeres are heated through. No need to thaw first.
For faster prep and equal-size gougeres, use small tablespoon-size ice cream scoop to portion the dough for each gougere.
