Reviews for Cheese Puffs
"not a lot of flavor"
"Loved these! Made them for a tailgate party. They were gone in no time."
"I made these and I used grated cheddar and you can substitute with any cheese really (my sister in law used some blue cheese) They were a hit many asking "What are these?" in between bites and then helping themselves to more. They couldn't believe they were so simple to make!!"
"Love these. Perfect for a potluck appetizer."
"These were so bland! No one touched them."
