Homemade Cheese Puffs (BBQ-Style)

These aren't exactly like their "Cheetos" cousins, but the soft inside paired with the crunchy and slightly sweet outside is a winner. These would be great served as a snack or even part of a meal for a "bread basket", similar to hush puppies with a bit of their own flavor - these are sure to please.

(Puff Dough Ingredients)

  • 1 and 3/4 cups White Corn Meal
  • 1/2 tsp of Baking Soda
  • 1 tsp of Salt
  • 2 tbl Vegetable Oil
  • 1/4 tsp of Garlic Powder
  • 1 cup of Warmed Water + 1 tsp Vinegar
  • 1/3 tsp of Whipped Agar (optional)

(BBQ Powder Ingredients)

  • 3 tsp Garlic Powder
  • 2 tsp Chili Powder
  • 2 tsp of Raw Sugar
  • 1 tsp of Stevia
  • About 1/4 cup of Veg Powdered Cheese (or Nutritional Yeast)
  • Salt to taste

  • Mix dough together until you can squeeze it without falling apart and then take a small cookie scoop to plop them out.
  • Allow to brown on all sides by pan-frying them, then bake for about 20 minutes until everything has crisped and fully cooked.
  • Quickly roll in the powder, serve and enjoy.
