Cheese Puffs

Recipe from

Southern Living


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


Trim crust from bread; discard. Cut bread into 2-inch cubes; place in a large bowl, and set aside.

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

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.

Bake at 400° for 12 minutes or until golden.
