Here is another recipe that you can share on New Year's Eve ~ not alot of people have massive dinners on this evening but like to munch on hors d'oeuvres all throughout the night.
So here is another perfect little recipe that is super simple to make for your big bash. ;)
Bon Appetit!

Prosciutto & Cheddar Puffs
These puffs are filled with prosciutto and cheese, perfect with pre-dinner drinks.

Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cooking Time: 30 minutes
Yield: 45

1/2 cup butter, cubed
1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper
Pinch cayenne pepper
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
4 eggs
1 cup shredded extra-old Cheddar cheese {I will go with medium}
1/2 cup finely diced prosciutto or crumbled cooked bacon
1 1/2 teaspoons caraway seeds {note: okay, I HATE caraway seeds, so I will sub on this one}

1. In a saucepan, bring 1 cup water, butter, salt, pepper and cayenne just to boil. Remove from heat and add flour all at once; using wooden spoon, stir until dough firms ball. Return to heat; cook stirring constantly, until slightly dry and film appears on bottom of pan, about 3 minutes.
Transfer to bowl; let cool for 5 minutes.
2. Beat in eggs, 1 at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in cheese, prosciutto and carraway {bleh!} seeds. Drop by scant tablespoonfuls, 2 inches apart, on parchment paper-lined rimmed baking sheets.
3. Bake in top and bottom thirds of 400°F oven, rotating and switching pans halfway through, until puffed and golden, 20 to 25 minutes. (Make-ahead: Let cool. Store in airtight container for up to 2 days. Reheat in 375°F oven until warm and crisp, about 5 minutes.)

Another super-quick and easy recipe.
This one sounds super delicious. What do you guys think I should substitute the caraway seeds with?
