It's as easy as 1, 2, 3 to make these puffs! Just measure, mix and bake. A few spoonfuls of Parmesan adds a big boost of flavour, so no one will ever guess you've cut back on the fat.
Parmesan cheese is not truly vegetarian, as it contains animal rennet. To make this dish 100% vegetarian, omit the cheese or find a suitable vegetarian substitute made without animal rennet. In supermarkets look for the 'parmesan style hard cheeses' which are suitable for vegetarians.
*Replace the Parmesan with another grating cheese such as pecorino.
*Add a few dried herbs such as dried thyme or oregano to the batter.
*By using a strong cheese in small amounts, you can have lots of flavour while keeping the fat and sodium content to a minimum.
*Spring onions, like other members of the onion family, contain allium compounds that may help relieve high blood pressure.
Altered ingredient amounts. Followed the receipe except for the tray. I only had oven proof cup cakes so I used them. - 21 Mar 2009
