Cheese Puffs
Recipe type: Appetizer
Cuisine: American
  • 1 cup water
  • 5 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into tablespoons
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¾ cup Gluten-Free Prairie Oat Flour Blend
  • 3 large eggs
  • 3 ounces Gruyère cheese, cut into ¼-inch dice (about ⅔ cup)
  • ½ teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • ½ cup bacon bits (optional)
  1. Preheat oven to 400. Line two large, rimmed baking sheets with parchment.
  2. In a medium saucepan, combine the water with the butter and salt and bring to a boil over moderate heat.
  3. Reduce the heat to low, add the flour all at once, and beat with a wooden spoon until the batter is smooth and pulls away from the side of the pan. Beat for 1 minute longer over the heat to dry out the batter.
  4. Remove from the heat and let the batter cool for 5 minutes. Beat in 1 egg at a time, beating well between additions. Stir in the cheese and pepper.
  5. Drop tablespoons of the batter onto the prepared baking sheets and bake for about 20 minutes, or until puffed and golden. Transfer to a rack to cool.
  6. Serve warm or at room temperature.
  7. The baked puffs can be frozen for up to 1 month. Thaw and reheat in a 350° oven for 5 minutes.
