How to Make Cheese Puffs

Go through the list of ingredients required and proper instructions which will help you to make cheese puffs quickly.


  • An adequately sized pot
  • Large glass or ceramic bowls
  • Heavy cream
  • Coldwater
  • A stirring stick
  • Cheese-cheddar
  • Eggs
  • A cheese grinder
  • Your favorite dried herbs
  • Flour
  • Salt
  • Butter
  • Black pepper


  • To prepare this recipe, determine how much cheese to use and decide the amount of butter.
  • Next, it would be better to determine the temperature needed to cook the cheese.
  • Mix the flour, milk, egg, and salt together to make a dough.
    Mix the wet ingredients together and allow the rough mixing to do its thing while you wait for the bread to rise. 
    You can either shape the dough into balls or put them on a floured surface and flatten them out with your hands; it keeps them from getting too soft and mushy in the middle.
  • Heating and Baking.
    In this step, you have to make sure that when the water comes to a boil, but before the flour begins to brown, remove it from the heat. 
    This is also when you have to put flour in a separate bowl because using just water will lead to too much air in the puffed objects and not enough moisture.
  • You are done. Now serve it hot.

Tips For Making Cheese Puffs

The optional garnish of fresh rosemary leaves is always nice on a puffed cheese bed. A few sprigs of lavender would be lovely too. You can even serve them with crackers on the side if you would like.

Some other flavors which can be used as the best toppings are bacon, nuts, chocolate, or strawberries.

The key to making really tasty cheese puffs is heating the milk until it lightly coats the back of a spoon, but not enough to coat the sides. The more water that gets into the milk, the harder it is for the curd to set.

Another key to making puff pieces is timing. It is important to set some ground rules early in the game not to be curious about what ingredients can go into what package. If things take a little time, the result will be worth it!
