What could be better than combining Bacon and Cheddar Cheese for an appetizer, game day snack or as a bread replacement for dinner.
Bacon and Cheddar Cheese Puffs
The combination of bacon and cheddar cheese in my little pastry puffs is almost the perfect little appetizer. This is a small batch recipe and makes a great side to compliment plain old chicken. Definitely will perk up dinner.
These little bacon and cheddar cheese puffs cheered me up. The recipe is actually a basic puff pastry so it’s not low in calories but it is BIG on flavor.
When planning a gathering, perhaps a bridal or baby shower, these make a terrific appetizer or finger food to add to the buffet. This puff pastry recipe is definitely worth a try, they are very quick and easy to make.
These delicious little puffs are also great for game day. When planning a brunch these bacon and cheddar cheese puffs are a great paring to serve with quiche or omelets.
This recipe is very easy to make. I made them in the afternoon and since it was a new combination of flavors we decided that it was important to taste – we had to be sure they were good!
Bacon Cheddar Puffs
Recipe adapted from Family Circle Magazine. This entire recipe can be completed within an hour or less. It yields about 18-22 small puff pastries.
- 2/3 cups water
- 2 TBLS. shortening (I've also used butter in this recipe, your choice)
- 3/4 cup flour
- 2 eggs
- 5 strips of cooked crispy bacon, chopped
- 1/3 cup shredded cheddar cheese
- 2 TBLS. chopped fresh parsley
They were so good we ate the entire dish in the blink of an eye. I had to make another batch. This recipe yields about 18-22 small puffs. It was enough for our family of 6 as a side but for appetizers or game day I’d make several batches.
Since it was still mid-afternoon and supper was a few hours away, I made another batch and I left the puffs in a dish uncovered. When we were ready to eat I put them in a hot oven for 5 minutes and they were awesome!
