- 16 oz

1Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit . Spray small muffin tin with non-stick spray.
2In a large blender add eggs, oil and milk. Blend well.
3Add salt, flour and cheese. Sometimes it helps to add a little flour and mix then a little more and mix, until everything is moving well in the blender. If it is too thick just add a few tablespoons of milk until it is a thick liquid consistency.
4Next pour enough in each small muffin tin till it is about 1/2 full. These will puff very high in the oven. Place them in the oven with at least 3 " of space above the pan.
6Turn them out immediately into a big bowl lined with a clean cloth. Enjoy right away.there should be big air pockets in the middle and these should be chewy and delicious. I make sure to use a good cheese.
7You can also substitute lots of other cheeses just make sure they are grated.
