"I needed something a little different for a party. I wanted something that was baked and not deep fried and came up with this recipe . I served these at a party and got rave reviews about these puffs. Serve them with your favourite dipping sauce. Use vegetables such as carrots, corn, parsnip and peas for your vegetables or use a frozen mix that has been thawed for convenience. A little Chili can be added for an extra kick also. I am guessing the amounts this mixture made but it did make quite a few!"
