    Nyteglori's Note:

    There are a number of other Brazilian Cheese Puff Recipes out there but most of them use a starch and Parmesan cheese. This is a great variation that is a bit easier to make than the traditional puffs.

      Having no experience with making traditional cheese puffs I have nothing to compare to, they are easy but rather time consuming. Not sure if I perhaps I didn't beat the egg whites enough maybe but I had trouble getting it to handle like dough with the cheese so added a couple tablespoons white flour and that did the trick. I mixed old cheddar and swiss together and used corn flake crumbs instead of bread crumbs as that's what I had on hand. Two thumbs up all around once we had them served up with dinner and will definitely be making again for finger food night. I don't think I'll ever buy cheese sticks again. Thanks for the yummy recipe Nyteglori! Made and enjoyed for team Mischief Makers - ZWT #7.
