“I found this recipe in an old egg cookbook. Great as an appetizer or a snack. I could eat it all fresh out of the oven it's so good. Hard to describe but it's a light, cheesy, airy, doughy delicious bread. Sort of a cream puff with cheese. I generally use a little extra cheese, since I love cheese.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat the oven to 425.
  2. Butter a cookie sheet and cover with a fine layer of flour.
  3. In a saucepan, combine water, butter, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly, until the butter has completely melted. Reduce heat to medium. Add in flour and stir continuously until the mixture has formed a ball and cleared the sides of the pan.
  4. Remove from heat.
  5. Beat the eggs in one at a time, beating well each time.
  6. Stir in all but 2 tablespoons of the cheese.
  7. Drop the dough by tablespoon onto the cookie sheet, forming a ring. It should be about 8 inches in diameter with a 2-inch space in the middle. So each individual piece is about 3 inches long.
  8. Sprinkle the ring with leftover cheese.
  9. Bake for 40 to 50 minutes, until puffed and golden brown.
