Parmesan Puffs

Despite not having a photo, I wanted to share with you a recipe for Parmesan Puffs. A puff is has a layer of bread soaked in egg mixture in the middle with the surrounding layers rolled in melted butter and parmesan cheese. My mom and I absolutely LOVE these, but the rest of our family won’t eat them…my dad hates all cheese, my sister is extremely health conscious, and my husband is not a big bread eater. Whether you make these or not is completely up to you…I strongly recommend it. They freeze well and when I want one, I just pop it into the oven for 20 minutes.


Parmesan Puffs
  • 1 egg
  • ½ cup milk
  • 9 slices firm white bread, crusts removed (I like Pepperidge Farm)
  • ½ cup (1 stick) butter, melted
  • 1½ cups grated parmesan cheese
  1. Beat egg and milk together in a small dish. Soak 3 slices of bread in milk mixture, then place each between 2 slices of fresh bread. (This creates 3 "sandwiches" with the soaked bread in the center of each).
  2. Press gently on the top of each sandwich to be sure slices stick together.
  3. Cut each sandwich into 3-4 pieces.
  4. Roll each piece in melted butter, then in parmesan.
  5. Place on cookie sheet and chill at least 4 hours. (Can be frozen at this point. Leave on cookie sheet until frozen, then store in plastic bags).
  6. Bake at 350 degrees for 10-15 minutes or until very lightly browned. Roll the puffs every 5 minutes so they brown more evenly. Add 5 minutes if frozen.
