I haven’t made these yet, but I have a question. Is one tablespoon ground mustard correct? Is that dry mustard? Seems like a lot.

Question: How far in advance can this batter be made?

Can these be made the night before and then reheated in the microwave?

I'm rating this a 5 star cause I just made them for a tailgate party this past Sunday and the guys went CRAZY! We dipped them in my homemade chili... WOW! Fabulous-

OMG, this recipe was so good! I'm not sure where you went wrong, MaryBrehm, but my puffs turned out perfectly. I even took them to my alma mater football tailgate on Saturday. They were a hit!

Wow! Where did I go wrong? The batter was as thin as pancake batter. These never did puff up like the photo. Is this supposed to use self-rising flour or baking soda/powder? In frustration I poured the batter into a pie pan and baked it. It turned out somewhat like a quiche. It does have a wonderful flavor.
