"I am posting this recipe in memory of my dear friend, Dot, who died in 2008. Dot was a wonderful lady and matriarch of a large and fascinating family. She was also an avid and excellent cook. It didn't matter when you arrived at Dot's home, there was always some freshly made goodie for you to sample. These puffs were just one of her offerings. The yield is a guess, as I forgot to write down what she said. Love you, Dot, and miss you!"

"I just finished making these delish puffs. After reading the reviews of flattening, I decidedd to experiment and I think I have got it. I added 3 tablespoons additional flour which help it to stay together, ( the look like bon bons). I used a small ice cream scoop and used a silpad. After taking them out of the oven, I immediately had one and found that it was bland and was missing something.I had some leftover bacon grease from breakfast and decided to brush the tops with bacon grease and sprinkled with coarse sea salt and coarse pepper. It made them perfect. Next time I make them I will add the salt and pepper in the batter, plus more cheese and maybe a dash of hot sauce. Yummo I hope this helps.
Sorry, I forgot to mention that I halved the recipe on everything except the egg."
"Hey MissMaggie, how come you got this recipe and not the rest of us? Sounds great and I will try it to take on the boat this weekend. . What others do you have up your sleeve? Dotsdaughter"
"This was a wonderful after school snack that could be whipped up in just a few mins. I did as other reviewers suggested and added extra flour(3 Tbsp) as well a using an ice cream scoop . They puffed up beautifully. They were gone in half an hour . I used regular cheddar cheese and thought they needed a bit of salt but that's subjective. Next time I'm going to add chopped chives . Thanks for sharing."
"I made these for new years, doubling the recipe.They were a hit! I'm planning on making them a bit smaller next time, and adding both salt and pepper. They did flattened out, so I'll use more flour next time. Otherwise, they were perfect!"
"What can I say that has'nt been said,,,DELICIOUS!!!,,sorry that's already been said,,I know, but they are!
I used gluten free flour mix and a teaspoon of baking powder instead of self raising (for obvious reasons) and they were perfect. Great for an on the go snack. Thank you MissMaggie, and thank you Dot."
"These are very good and easy to make. Mine also flattned out, but went great with the soup we had for dinner tonight. Thank You. Made for ZWT6 Zingo. No-Nonsense Nibblers."
"Wow, these are so good! Mine also spread out, they were more like little mini-biscuits. I think these would be great with soup or a salad. A new family favorite! Made for ZWT6 Zingo."
"These are a mouthful of cheesy, smokey goodness and everyone loved them. As you can see by the picture for some reason, mine did not stay in nice little balls like everyone elses photo so don't know what I did wrong there. Next time I think I'll use my mini cupcake pan so that the shape is retained. That little problem (and it's mine I know) didn't take away one iota from the great taste. Made for ZWT6 ZINGO"
"I wish I would of known Dot! Adored these and I agree with the other reviewers, the aroma from the oven despite being almost 100 degrees here on the farm, still brought everyone coming home and banging the front door. I followed this exactly and even used wonderful grainy mustard that I saved for a special occasion. Made for ZWT 6 2010"
"Yummy and so easy! I just ate the first one right out of the oven because they smelled so good I couldn't wait! I used recipe #29318 as I didn't have any at home. Oh and I made a little boo boo - I used grainy honey dijon mustard by mistake, but they're still fantastic! Now where to hide them so my BF doesn't eat them all himself... Made for ZWT #6!"
"WOW these are great and addictive! They were gobbled up and everyone wants them again so I think I will be making this recipe again this week. Thank you for posting. It went straight into my favorites folder!! ZWT6"
"These are really good, couldn't stop eating them!! I did put in less onion (about 1/2 of a large onion) since I have to DS's that do not like onions (so they think). There was still enough onions to give these a wonderful flavor. Made for ZWT6 Zingo."
"These were wonderful! My family gobbled these up in no time flat. Great flavor and very easy to make. Made for X-tra Hot Dishes ZWT"
"These are REALLY good. I wasn't sure if I should cook the bacon first... I didn't and it cooked just fine in puffs. I HATE cutting onions, so like always... I used dried onion flakes (about 1/4 cup). I also had no self-rising flour, so I added 1/2 tsp of salt and 1 tsp of baking powder and they rose just fine. I love these! Very easy to put together. Made for ZWT6 - zingo"
"Great appy, MissMaggie! I loved the fact that they were baked instead of fried. I have nothing personal against frying, mind you, but I do like to lighten up when I can. I think I would, also, like to add a little bit of jalapeno. Thnx for sharing your recipe. Made for the Voracious Vagabonds of ZWT 6."
"I thought this might be a little too much onion, so I decreased it....but the onions around here are large! Otherwise, I made as posted. They were oniony enough, so I didn't decrease the onion too much. A really good appetizer. I'll add jalapenos next time...I felt it needed some heat. Thanks for sharing!"
"This is my kind of snack/appy! I did cut the recipe in half and also used finely chopped green onions (with the green tops too.) I wonder how well they would freeze? Thanks for posting MissMaggie. Made for ZWT 6."
"These were great! I used a mix of gouda and cheddar cheese and a little less onion. The result was delicious. They would be a hit at any party. I could see adding some chopped jalapeno next time. Thank you for sharing! Made for Swizzle Chicks and ZWT6."
"Lovely little morsels of oniony-cheesy-bacon goodness. Easy to make, too. Thanks."
"I thought the amount of onion in this recipe might be a bit off. I used one medium-small onion finely chopped and it measured 3/4 cup. As it was, it was very oniony. I may try it again with 2 scallions instead. Pretty little puffs though."
