Stilton and Bacon Puffs

Stilton and Bacon Puffs
Recipe type: Hors d Oeuvres
Serves: 30 pieces
  • 1/2 Cup water
  • 1/4 Cup unsalted butter (1/2 stick); cut into bits
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1/2 Cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/4 pound Stilton cheese; crumbled
  • 4 slices bacon; cooked crisp, and crumbled fine
  • 1/4 Cup minced scallion
  1. In a small heavy saucepan combine the water, the butter, and a pinch of salt and bring the mixture to a boil over high heat.
  2. Reduce the heat to moderate, add the flour all at once, and with a wooden spoon beat the mixture until it pulls away from the sides of the pan and forms a ball.
  3. Remove the pan from the heat, add the eggs, 1 at a time, beating well after each addition, and stir in the Stilton, the bacon, the scallion, and salt and pepper to taste.
  4. Drop rounded teaspoons of the batter 2 inches apart onto lightly-buttered baking sheets and bake the puffs in the middle of a preheated 425 degree oven for 15 to 20 minutes, or until they are crisp and golden.
  5. This recipe yields approximately 30 hors d'oeuvres.

You may substitute blue cheese for Stilton, which is not commonly available outside Britain.
