1/2 cup
Land O Lakes® Butter
1 cup
all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon
Italian seasoning*
1/4 teaspoon
garlic salt
4
large Land O Lakes® Eggs
1 1/2 cups
shredded hot pepper jack cheese
2 tablespoons
chopped fresh chives
 
*Substitute 1/8 teaspoon each dried basil leaves, dried marjoram leaves and dried oregano leaves, and a dash of rubbed sage.

Directions

  1. Heat oven to 400°F. Line baking sheets with parchment paper or lightly spray baking sheets with no-stick cooking spray.
  2. Combine water and butter in 2-quart saucepan. Cook over medium heat 5-7 minutes until mixture comes to a boil. Add flour, Italian seasoning and garlic salt. Stir vigorously until mixture forms a ball. Remove from heat. Add 1 egg at a time, beating after each addition until smooth. Stir in 1 cup cheese and chives.

Recipe Tips

- To make ahead, bake as directed. When completely cooled, place baking sheets in freezer until puffs are frozen. Place frozen puffs in resealable plastic freezer bags or containers; return to freezer. To reheat, place puffs onto baking sheet; bake at 350°F, 8-10 minutes or until heated through.

I would definately add more cheese and a touch more garlic salt, otherwise these were good and easy to make. They also sound quite impressive!

Easy to make and very tasty. I put all 6oz of cheese in the mix and topped the puffs, before baking, with another 2oz.
