  • 1/2 cup Evaporated Milk
  • 1/2 cup Water
  • 75 grams Butter, chopped
  • 3/4 teaspoon Salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon Pepper
  • 1 cup Flour
  • 3 Eggs
  • 1 cup Tasty cheese, grated
  • 2 tablespoons herb, chopped
  • A pinch of nutmeg
  • 1/4 cup Milk


  1. Turn oven onto bake and preheat to 200 degrees Celsius. Line a baking tray with non stick baking paper to stop the puffs from sticking.
  2. In a medium sized saucepan, mix the evaporated milk, water, butter, salt and pepper. Bring to a rolling boil and remove from heat.
  3. Stir in the flour all at once and keep stirring until it forms a ball of dough that pulls away from the side of the saucepan. Return to the heat and cook, stirring for 2 to 3 minutes.
  4. Remove from heat and put the dough into a clean bowl. Cool mixture 5 minutes. This is important so you don’t make scrambled eggs in the next step!
  5. Add eggs one as a time making sure you beat the egg in really well. Then stir in the cheese, chopped herbs and nutmeg and mix well again.
  6. Put tablespoon sized spoonful’s of the dough onto the baking paper and brush the puffs with milk.
  7. Bake in the hot oven for 25 to 30 minutes, or until puffed and golden brown.
  8. When cool enough to handle move to a wire rack to cool to room temperature.
    These are really good with soup!
