1 - Preheat the oven to 190°C (170° fan) | 375F | gas 5. Grease and line a large baking tray with greaseproof paper.
2 - Stir together flour, salt, Cheddar, and chives in a large mixing bowl.
3 - Make a well in the middle and add the eggs, milk, and melted butter. Mix to a soft dough, adding a little more milk as needed if too dry.
4 - Turn out the dough and divide into 12 portions. Shape into rough balls and arrange on the lined tray, spaced apart.
5 - Brush the tops with a little milk before baking for 30-40 minutes until golden and risen.
