Easy Parmesan Cheese Bread

This article may contain affiliate links which support this site at no cost to you.

Cheese bread is one of my favorite forms of carbs.  This cheese bread is basically a savory version of a cream puff.  The batter comes together quickly with just butter, water, flour and eggs.  Stir in cheese and bake for an easy cheese bread perfect for any night!

Cheese Bread

I didn’t set out to make cheese bread for this month’s Secret Recipe Club.  In fact, On The Move – In the Galley made it very difficult to choose a recipe.  What an amazing collection of recipes there are on this blog!  I really didn’t have anything in mind when I went searching.  The crepes with Lemon Parsley Sauce look amazing.  When I saw the Parmesan Puff recipe and realized that it is basically a savory rendition of a cream puff, I knew I had to try it.

What I love about this recipe is that you can make it your own very easily.  I just used Parmesan cheese, but any cheese would work.  Then add your favorite herbs – straight from your garden, perhaps.  We ate these with all sorts of meals – salmon, pasta with clam sauce, at breakfast with eggs and they were delicious with each one.  This would also be a fun cheese bread to make in to small puffs to serve as an appetizer.

    They look so perfect! I have some thyme I need to use and this would be a great way to use that with some sharp cheddar cheese. Thanks for the inspiration. Great SRC choice!

    Camille, you chose one of my favorites, Parmesan Puffs, for SRC this month. Your suggestion of fresh herbs sounds even more delicious.
