Helpful Tips for Making Ham and Cheese Puffs
- The dough for these puffs is made using biscuit mix. This can't be used interchangeably with all purpose flour.
- You can adapt with a different flavor of cheese for the dough using the same amount.
- If you'd like to add a little kick, along with the Creole seasoning add a pinch or two of cayenne.
- I recommend that you serve these ham and cheese puffs with sweet hot mustard for dipping. Otherwise, Creole mustard or honey mustard or, a variety of mustards to suit everyone's taste.
- A small scoop makes dividing the dough a cinch. You could also use a tablespoon to drop the dough into the wells of the muffin pan. Try to divide evenly so the puffs will be uniform in size.
- These puffs can be baked, cooled then packaged and frozen. Reheat in a 350°F oven just until heated through.
