Manchego Cheese Puffs


Yummy cheese puffs don’t have to come out of a bag to be delicious! Make these at home and surprise your family.


  • 1-1/2 cups whole milk
  • 8 tablespoons butter
  • 1 tablespoon sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 5 large eggs
  • 1 cup shredded, aged (3 to 6 months) Manchego cheese
  • 1/2 cup finely grated parmesan cheese


  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. In a medium saucepan, combine milk, butter, salt, and pepper and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, add the flour and stir vigorously until well incorporated.
  3. Stirring constantly, cook the dough until it begins to feel dry to the touch and forms a ball that does not stick to the bottom of your saucepan. Remove from heat.
  4. Using a rubber spatula, begin to beat in eggs one at a time, thoroughly blending in the last before adding the next.
  5. Set aside 3 tablespoons of the Manchego, and add the remaining Manchego and all of the parmesan cheese to the dough. Mix gently and consistently until thoroughly incorporated.
  6. Using a tablespoon or large dinner spoon, begin dropping rounds of dough onto the lined baking sheets about 1/2 inch apart. Evenly sprinkle the set-aside Manchego cheese over the top of the dollops.
  7. Bake until puffed and golden brown, about 30 to 35 minutes.

Serve hot, cold or at room temperature. Store in a plastic container with a lid in the refrigerator.
