Ingredients

These puffs can be baked ahead, frozen, and reheated in a 350° oven until crisp.

Instructions

Preheat oven to 425° with rack in the lower third.

Sauté bacon in a small skillet over medium-high heat until crisp. Drain on paper towel-lined plate.

Bring milk, water, butter, and seasonings to a boil in a medium saucepan over medium heat.

Add flour and stir mixture with a wooden spoon until dough forms a ball around the spoon. Cook mixture until it starts to stick slightly on bottom and sides of pan. Remove from heat and cool slightly.

Beat eggs into mixture, one at a time, until completely incorporated.

Stir in both cheeses, scallions, and reserved bacon. Using a #100 scoop or a 1-teaspoon measure, drop dough 2-inches apart onto parchment-lined baking sheets. Bake 20–25 minutes, or until puffs are browned and crisp. Serve puffs warm or at room temperature.
