Jamie’s Cheesy Puffs


  • 50 g Parmesan cheese
  • 100 g Lincolnshire Poacher or Cheddar cheese
  • 50 g unsalted butter
  • 100 g plain flour
  • 50 g fine semolina
  • 3 large free-range eggs


Finely grate all of the cheese.

Place the butter in a medium pan on a medium heat with 250ml (remember to do a 1/3….) of cold water. As soon as the mixture comes to a rolling boil, tip in the flour, semolina and a pinch of sea salt.

With a wooden spoon, work carefully, quickly and fairly vigorously to beat it all together until smooth and starting to come away from the sides of the pan.

Remove from the heat and beat for 30 seconds, then, one at a time, beat in the eggs, followed by the grated cheese.

Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.

Line a baking sheet with greaseproof paper.

With wet hands, divide the mixture into 24 pieces and roll into glorious, shiny balls, lining them up on the tray as you go.

If using remoska cook for 30-35 mins.

Preheat the oven to 200°C/400°F/gas 6. Bake uncovered for 20 minutes, or until golden. Enjoy warm with a glass of something cold and sparkling.


THE FREEZER IS YOUR FRIEND: These are fantastic cooked from frozen if you want to get super ahead. Simply bake for 35 minutes at 200°C/400°F/gas 6
