Ingredients

1 cup water

1/2 cup Land O Lakes® Butter

1 cup all-purpose flour

1/2 teaspoon garlic salt

4 large Land O Lakes® Eggs

1 cup (4 ounces) finely shredded Asiago or Parmesan cheese

1/2 cup finely chopped red bell pepper

2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh basil  

 

 *Substitute 1 1/2 teaspoons dried basil leaves.

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Heat oven to 400°F. Line baking sheets with parchment paper. Set aside.

  2. STEP 2

    Place water and butter in heavy 2-quart saucepan. Cook over medium heat 6-8 minutes or until mixture comes to a full boil. Reduce heat to low; stir in flour and garlic salt vigorously until mixture leaves sides of pan and forms a ball. Remove from heat. Add 1 egg at a time, beating well after each addition, until mixture is smooth. Stir in cheese, bell pepper and basil.

  3. STEP 3

    Immediately drop dough by rounded teaspoonfuls onto prepared baking sheets. Bake 18-22 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm.

Tip #1

To make ahead, bake as directed. Cool completely. Place cooled bites onto baking sheets; place into freezer until firm. Place frozen bites into resealable plastic freezer bags. Freeze up to 2 months. To reheat, heat oven to 350°F. Place frozen bites in single layer onto ungreased baking sheets. Bake 8-10 minutes or until heated through.

    Container Cuisine - Make Lunch Ahead

At the office or on the road, they can be reheated easily in a microwave for a perked-up packed lunch and a definite change from the same old, midday routine.
