An Old Standby

Last week I remembered a VERY old do-ahead appetizer recipe I haven't made in at least 10 years. i know I haven't made them since I moved to the desert 9 years ago, but I used to always have some in my freezer. Maybe I got tired of them? They are fun to make, and delicious. Kind of like if a marshmallow were made out of cheese...
This was one of those recipes you never wrote down, because it was so simple to remember. I always called them "Cheese Puffs"

Cube a large loaf of french or sour dough bread into 1/2 inch cubes. I use my electric knife to do this quickly and make perfect little cubes.
In a double boiler, melt 8 oz. cream cheese, 1 cup of butter, and 2 cups grated sharp cheddar. Beat 4 egg whites until stiff, and fold into warm cheese mixture.
Coat each bread cube, (I just use a fork), and place them on a parchment or waxed paper lined baking sheet. Leave them in the freezer overnight, then store them, unbaked in ziplock bags. When ready to use, bake them at 400 for 15-18 minutes. YUM!
One batch makes 120 cheese puffs. Of course I made two batches yesterday. They are quite addictive.

Yum! Sounds good! Of course, I am like you, and anything with cheese sounds good to me!
