There are so many recipes over the years that I have tried. A lot are from before my blogging life, but I must admit I have experimented with a lot of new recipes during the past year. There are so many recipes we enjoy, but they get forgotten when new recipes come into play.
Today’s dill and cheese puffs come from a time long ago. My husband (to-be at the time) and myself had just moved into our first apartment, and I found this recipe while browsing the internet. The basic recipe called for just cheese, and that is how I made them. However, as delightful as they were, I knew when I made them again that they needed more. Who would have though that would be 6+ years later and I would be using fresh dill. FRESH DILL?! Yeah, still trying to make sense of that but I love dill now and love to include it in all my recipes.
The addition of the garlic clove helped greatly as well. Not too overpowering, but just enough to add character. I want to make these again with rosemary and sage! Maybe some fried onions and garlic for even more depth. Whatever flavour combination you come up with, you will be sure to fall in love with the soft, moist texture of these dill and cheese puffs.
You can easily add more dill here! It is just a matter of taste 🙂
