RECIPE: looking for: baked cheese puff on bread

Posted by prettyinpinkandgrey (My Page) on

My grandmother used to make this delicious appetizer that was a puff of cheese baked on to a 1.5 cm square of bread. This wasn't exactly a "cheese puff" because there was no flour in the cheese puff itself, it was just placed on a piece of bread. The cheese puff was very light and I remember it being white-light yellow in color. The bread underneath the puff became crisp as a result of being being baked.

I really appreciate any help you can offer. I'd love to pass this recipe down.

Does this one sound familiar? I think these were very popular for appetizers in the 50's or 60's?

Printed from COOKS.COM

12 slices enriched white bread
4 tbsp. butter
1/4 lb. grated Cheddar cheese
1/4 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
1 egg, separated

Cut 2 inch rounds from bread and toast lightly on one side. Spread the untoasted side with butter. Mix cheese, baking powder, salt and beaten egg yolk; fold in stiffly beaten egg white. Spread mixture thickly over buttered sides of bread and place close together on a cookie sheet. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and place cookie sheet close to broiler (the top rack in the oven should be at it's highest point) until puffed and light brown. Makes 12 puffs.

Best made at least 2 hours before, I do it previous day, cover with foil and refrigerate.

1 pint Hellman's Mayonaise

1 bunch green onions, totally chopped

1 cup grated sharp cheddar

3 cloves of garlic, crushed

Mix above stuff. Spread on thinly (about 1/4") sliced (by the bakery) french bread/baquette and place on cookie sheet. Sprinkle on 1 bunch of fresh, chopped parsley.

Just before you serve, remove foil, place in preheated 400 degree oven until puffed up (not brown), about 12 minutes.
