    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Yield:

    dozen

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Adjust rack in lower third of oven; preheat oven to 400 degrees. Grease and flour a large baking sheet. Cut the cheese into/4-inch cubes.
    2. 2
      Bring the water and butter to a rolling boil in a saucepan. Add the flour all at once and stir vigorously with a wooden spoon until mixture is smooth and comes together in a ball. Transfer mixture to a bowl to cool slightly. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating well after each addition. Add the bacon, parsley and cheese cubes.
    3. 3
      Spoon the batter into a pastry bag fitted with a 1/2-inch plain pastry tip and pipe out small mounds, 1-inch in diameter (about 2 teaspoons each), on the prepared baking sheet. Leave about 1-inch space between each mound to allow for expansion. (Or spoon small mounds onto prepared baking sheet.).
    4. 4
      Bake 25 to 35 minutes, or until golden. For crisper puffs, pierce sides with tip of paring knife, return to oven and bake 5 to 10 minutes longer.
    5. 5
      Serve hot. Or cool on wire rack, store in a sturdy plastic container with a tight-fitting lid and freeze up to 2 weeks.
    6. 6
      To recrisp, place frozen cheese puffs on a baking sheet in a preheated 325-degree oven until hot, about 10 minutes.

      I cut this recipe in half since my hungry group was small, & now I wish I'd made the whole thing ~ THESE ARE GREAT! Taste, prep, everything ~ JUST WONDERFUL, & I already have 3 other events this month & plan to serve these puffs at all three! Thanks for sharing your recipe! [Made & reviewed while on World Tour 4 in Germany]

      This is so funny--- I LOVED THESE! So much so I described them to my dad who laughed and reminded me how many I had scarfed down as a kid. He used to make something very similar and kept them in the freezer for guests. Just reheat them and they're great. I can't tell you about the batch I made, because they were all eaten within a few hours. (And I wish I could blame it on a HUGE party, but we just ate....and ate....)

      Hello evelyn/athens, we made these last night and they were fantastically wonderful!(How about that for a word? If there is such a thing!) We enjoyed them thoroughly and made them almost just as posted. However, I did add 2 tablespoons of fresh chives as well. They were nice and crispy and I thought we would have enough for today, but no such luck! The staff went at them as if they hadn't eaten in over a week, and those delicious morsels of dough were gone. Thanks for posting such a yummy recipe. Everyone, these will be great for the holidays! Diane :)
