With only 4 ingredients, you can easily whip up a batch of these Cheddar Cheese Bites! They are perfect for a quick and easy appetizer, snack or accompaniment to soup!
TGIF, y’all. TGIF. This week has been crazy long and I am more than ready to take some time to just chill out with the family! I’m even thinking about taking a night off from cooking and going out for dinner – which is a rare treat for us! It’s been that kinda week.
Last night I made a slow cooker pasta dish (it will be on the blog soon!) and in my haste, I forgot the bread again. It happens every time these days. Thankfully, I have a few quick and easy recipes in my arsenal to help me out. I was digging through one of my (many) recipe boxes and found this recipe. I haven’t made it in such a long time. As a matter of fact, I remember the last time I made it was at my parent’s house …. my dad thought these little Cheddar Cheese Bites were “the bomb.” I had to ask him if he even knew what that term, “the bomb,” meant since he’s kinda un-hip and not up with the modern lingo. He actually knew!! LOL.
My kiddos think these Cheddar Cheese Bites taste like Cheez-It® crackers with the texture being a cross between a cracker and biscuit. To some extent, I actually agree with them. These little bites are super easy to mix up – I find using my hands the easiest. They’re perfect for parties, tailgating, appetizers, snacks, with soup … or if you’re like me – anytime you forget the bread (AGAIN).
You can easily add some crumbled bacon or finely chopped green onions for a change of pace. Although I have never tried other cheeses, I’m sure it can easily be changed out as well. Enjoy, y’all!
- 1 cup (4 oz.) Cheddar cheese, shredded
- 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/4 cup (half of a stick) butter, softened
- 1/2 tsp. ground mustard
- Preheat oven to 400°F.
- In a medium bowl, combine all of the ingredients until well mixed. Roll or scoop the mixture into 1-inch balls. Place at least 1-inch apart on an ungreased baking sheet.
- Bake 12-15 minutes or until the puffs are lightly browned. Serve warm.
*NOTE - I find it easiest to mix this with my hands.
