Cheese Puffs

Yield 2 dozen

Ingredients

  • 1 (16-ounce) loaf French bread
  • 1/2 cup butter or margarine
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
  • 1 (3-ounce) package cream cheese
  • 2 egg whites

How to Make It

  1. Trim crust from bread; discard. Cut bread into 2-inch cubes; place in a large bowl.

  2. Melt butter and cheeses in a saucepan over low heat; stir occasionally.

  3. Beat whites at high speed with an electric mixer until stiff peaks form; fold one-quarter of whites into cheese mixture. Fold into remaining whites. Pour over bread cubes, tossing to coat. Place bread cubes in a single layer on an ungreased cookie sheet.

  4. Bake at 400° for 12 minutes or until golden.
