Come For Tea #34: Parmesan Puffs

A scrumptious savory for your tea tray! These little nibbles can also be made ahead and kept in the freezer until you need them.

- Recipe-

● 12 slices bread

● 1-2 T. butter, softened

● 8 oz. cream cheese

● 3 T. mayonnaise

● 3 green onions, finely chopped

● 3 drops Tobasco sauce

● 3/4 cup Parmesan cheese

1. Cut out 24 (2") circles out of bread. Butter one side of the bread. Place on baking sheet and broil the buttered side until browned. Set aside.

2. In a bowl, mix together the cream cheese, mayo, onions, Tobasco and 1/2 cup of the Parmesan cheese.

3. Turn the bread rounds over and spread with the cream cheese mixture, making sure to mound slightly. Place the last 1/4 cup of Parmesan cheese on a small plate and dip the tops of the puffs into the cheese. Place back on the baking sheet. Broil until puffy and light brown. (You may want to move the pan around so that they will brown evenly.

Note: These puffs can be made ahead and frozen. Before the final broil, take the puffs (while they are still on the baking sheet) and place them in the freezer. Once frozen, take them off the sheet and place them in a freezer-storage bag. When you're ready to serve them, place them on a baking sheet, let them thaw at room temperature for 15 minutes, then broil until puffy and light brown.
