About this Recipe


1 cup (250 mL) Boiling water
1/2 cup (125 mL) Butter
1 cup (250 mL) All-purpose flour
1 tsp (5 mL) Dry mustard powder
1/8 tsp (.5 mL) Cayenne
4 Eggs
1 (175 g) Package Schneiders® Country Naturals® Uncured Baked Ham, diced
1/3 cup (80 mL) Grated Parmesan cheese


PREHEAT oven to 425°F (220°C).

MIX boiling water with butter in a medium saucepan. Heat until the butter melts and the water comes to a boil. Add flour, mustard powder and cayenne. Beat until mixture forms a ball and leaves the sides of the saucepan.

Add eggs, one at a time beating well after each addition. Stir in ham and cheese.

PLACE one large spoonful of the pastry on a parchment paper lined baking sheet. Bake in preheated oven for 15 minutes. Reduce heat to 350°F (180°C) and continue to bake for 5-8 minutes or until golden brown. Serve as a hot appetizer or an accompaniment to soup.


Puffs may be prepared ahead and stored, covered in the refrigerator. Reheat in a preheated 350° (180°C) oven for 8-10 minutes.
