Eggs in a Puff

Submitted by: Nick Scherf

Serving Size: 6

butter or margarine
1/2 cups
boiling water
1 cups
all-purpose flour
1 cups
1/4 teaspoons
eggs, beaten
milk or light cream
1/3 cups
1/4 teaspoons
frozen cut broccoli, cooked, drained
5 ounces
butter or margarine
2 tablespoons
pepper jack cheese, shredded
1/2 cups


½ cup butter or margarine
1 cup boiling water
1 cup all purpose flour
¼ teaspoon salt
4 eggs

8 eggs, beaten
1/3 cup milk or light cream
¼ teaspoon salt
dash pepper
5 ounces frozen cut broccoli, cooked and drained (1/2 of a 10 oz pkg.)
2 tablespoons butter or margarine
½ cup shredded pepper jack cheese


To make the puff; melt ½ cup butter or margarine in boiling water, add flour and ¼ teaspoon salt all at once and stir vigorously. Cook and stir until mixture forms a ball that doesn't separate. Remove from heat, cool slightly (about 5 minutes). Add the 4 eggs, one at a time, beating after each until smooth. Spread batter over the bottom and up the sides of a greased 9-inch glass pie plate. Bake in 400°F oven about 25 minutes or until golden brown and puffy.

Meanwhile, beat together the 8 eggs, milk, salt and pepper. Stir in broccoli. Melt the 2 tablespoons of butter or margarine in a skillet just until hot enough to sizzle a drop of water. Pour in the egg-broccoli mixture. Reduce heat to low, move mixture around to cook, add shredded cheese, and continue cooking until no runny egg remains. Spoon egg mixture into baked puff.
