These cheesy puffs are really tasty! Use any filling you wish if these don't suit your needs.

Hi Barbara, these were 1 of 3 appetizers I made for a dinner party on Saturday night. They were a big hit. I found them easy to make. I doubled the recipe and never changed a thing. I made the seafood filling, next time I will try the chicken or as you suggested both. Thanks so much for posting, its a keeper.
