Note: This recipe comes from Better Homes and Gardens’ “Cream Puffs” recipe, but rather than filling with sweet fillings, I instead change it to have cheddar. It ends up tasting like a pastry dish, good for any time of the day even breakfast.
1 cup water
1/2 cup butter
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 1/2 cups of grated sharp cheddar cheese
Step 1 – Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Grease a baking sheet 9 x 15in.
Step 1 – In a medium saucepan, stir together water, butter and salt until they boil.
Step 2 – Add flour all at once, stirring vigorously until it forms a ball.
Step 3 – Remove from heat, then add 1 1/2 cups cheddar cheese. Cool for 10 minutes.
Step 4 – Add eggs, one at a time, beating well with a wooden spoon after each.
Step 1 – Drop 12 evenly formed heapings of the dough onto the baking sheet.
Step 2 – Bake for 25 minutes, then pull out and sprinkle cheddar cheese on top of each. Cook 5 minutes more until the cheese is melted.
Step 3 – Remove from the dish and cool for 10-15 minutes.
Can chill and reheat for up to 3 days. Serves 3-6.
