“These are good, very cheesy rolls that are delicious as a warm appetizer. My boyfriend and I make them about 2 to 4 times a month. We love them. I recommend doubling the recipe if serving more than 2 or 3 people.”

Original recipe yields 8 puffs



  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Lightly grease a medium baking sheet.
  2. In a medium saucepan, bring milk and margarine to boil over medium high heat. Stir in flour and reduce heat to low. Vigorously stir until thick enough to form into a ball. Remove from heat.
  3. Beat eggs into the mixture until smooth. Stir in Parmesan cheese.
  4. Drop the dough by rounded teaspoonfuls onto the prepared baking sheet. Bake in the preheated oven 15 minutes, or until puffed and golden brown. Serve warm with warmed marinara sauce for dipping.

Excellent! Here's my tip. Skip the marinara completely. Once out of the oven and cooled so they are firm but still warm, drizzle a creamy garlic butter/garlic paste over them. That way you get a nice garlic flavor over the base of cheesy dough. My wife and I loved them! :)



I've made these two times for my husband and they turned out great both times. The second time I added garlic salt and pepper for an added kick. If you have had problems with the milk, your heat may have been to high, try turning it down and try the recipe againg - they are really good.



Fantastic! The secret to these is keeping the balls REALLY SMALL as the recipe says; do not go above one rounded tsp. and you won't get soggy middles. I added: garlic salt, about 1 tsp. dried basil, fresh black pepper, and about 1/2 cup grated cheddar. Watch them carefully so the bottoms don't burn; if they start over-cooking just turn it down to 350 for the last while. Thank you so much for these! They're beautiful & delicious.
