Hot Parmesan Puffs Recipe

These scrumptious puffs come from the oven golden brown and bubbly. I make them often to serve at parties. For a change of pace, I'll use Swiss cheese instead of Parmesan.
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 25 min. YIELD:12 servings

Ingredients

  • 16 slices bread
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
