Bread And Cheese Puff Recipe

For children who enjoy macaroni cheese type meals, this is a simplified version for busy moms. It's also a great way to use up leftover bread.


Prep Time

10 minutes (excluding soaking time in step 4)

Cooking Time

30 minutes


Serves: 3 children

Recipe Ingredients

  • 4 slices SPAR sliced white bread
  • +/-80ml cheese sandwich spread - cheddar or bacon flavour
  • 2 slices sandwich ham, diced
  • 500ml SPAR full cream milk
  • 2 large SPAR eggs
  • 1ml Aromat type seasoning
  • 15ml mild mustard sauce

Recipe Method

  1. Preheat oven to 180ºC. Grease a shallow oven dish.
  2. Spread cheese spread onto each slice of bread. Sprinkle on the chopped ham.
  3. Slice the bread into quarter triangles, and arrange them in the oven dish, lying snugly in rows with each short pointed side facing up.
  4. Beat together the milk, eggs, seasoning and mustard sauce. Pour onto the bread and set aside for 30 minutes to soak.
  5. Cover the dish loosely and bake for 30 minutes. Uncover and bake a while longer until crisp and browned on top.

Hints & Tips

Experiment with alternatives to ham, such as sliced cheesy viennas, cooked bacon or savoury beef or chicken mince, or other meats your children enjoy.
