Cheese Puff Buns

I’ve found a new food blog that I’m enjoying lately…..Weelicious! It features kid friendly food recipes. This is the first recipe I have tried but it was a big hit so I will definitely be making more!

Cheese Puffs
Adapted from

1 cup milk
1/2 cup butter (I used salted)
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup cheddar cheese
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
6 large eggs (5 for recipe + 1 for eggwash)


Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

Mix milk, butter and salt in a medium saucepan. Heat over low heat until butter is melted and milk is warm.

Add flour to the pot and continuously stir with a spatula until combined & a light golden color (about 3 minutes).

Dump dough into a mixer (with paddle attachment) or a food processor with the cheese. Mix until cheese is incorporated and melted.


Add the 5 eggs one at a time, mixing between each addition.


Spoon onto a silpat or parchment paper lined cookie sheet. Brush with egg wash for a shiny crust. I did part of my puffs in my Pampered Chef mini muffin pan.

Recipe Notes: The puffs I made on a cookie sheet were a little flat. I think next time I will up the flour content but this may be a high altitude problem so maybe try them with the ingredients above one time.

Don’t forget to see what else is cooking over at Shan’s!

I think a regular hand mixer would work. Just make sure to have the cheese shredded and ready to go so that the dough is still hot when you mix the cheese with the dough.
