STEP 1 Preheat oven to 450° F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. Lightly coat with cooking spray.
STEP 2 Separate egg whites from the yolks, placing each yolk in an individual small bowl. Beat all of the egg whites and salt in a mixing bowl with an electric mixer on high speed until stiff.
STEP 3 Gently fold Parmesan and scallions into the beaten whites with a rubber spatula. Make 4 mounds (about 3/4 cup each) of egg-cheese mixture on the prepared baking sheet. Make a well in the middle of each mound with the back of a spoon.
STEP 4 Bake the egg whites until starting to lightly brown, about 3 minutes. Remove from oven. If the well has filled in during baking, use the spoon to recreate it. Gently slip a yolk into each well. Bake until the yolks are cooked but still runny, 3 to 5 minutes more. Sprinkle with pepper. Serve immediately.
