Downunder Cheese Puffs

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Missy Wombat

These are not popovers and have nothing to do with bread. These are very quick snacks that you can whip up during commercial breaks when you are watching TV and you feel like something cheesy. Vary the taste with different types of cheeses.

My God Donna! do you realize what you have here? This is a basic recipe that can be taken into 100 directions! I followed your recipe exactly, used mild cheddar, they were okay, but the cheese I selected was too mild. Next time I'm using sharp cheddar. You could also throw in a little onion, dill, green peppers, etc. Or you could use swiss cheese instead of cheddar, maybe with chopped almonds. (just ideas) Make them a tad smaller and you have an excellent fast, easy appetiser. This recipe is a definite keeper and it's going in my recipe box immediately. BTW I made 30 appetiser sized puffs out of this recipe and only had to grease the pan once.
