    These are really scrummy and this recipe makes so many just to hand round when people are having a drink.

    75g full fat cheese
    150g butter
    150g grated cheddar
    2 large egg whites
    5 thick slices from a white tin loaf (maybe more), needs to be at least a day old or so and crusts removed
    salt and pepper

    Turn oven onto 220c/fan 200c/gas 7.

    1. Melt cream cheese, butter and cheddar in a pan over a low heat until completely melted. It will look completely curdled but that's fine.

    2. Whisk the egg whites and fold into the cheese mixture and season.

    3. Cut each slice of bread into four down, five across to give 20 x 2.5cm cubes.

    4. Using 2 forks, dip each cube into the cheese mixture and place on a baking sheet (non stick, or oiled, or covered in grease proof paper).

    5. Bake in oven for about 10 mins until golden brown and puffed up. Turn over and check after 6 mins. Serve at once.

    These can be frozen after stage 4 and are good cooked from frozen, adding 5 mins to cooking time.

    That's fine. It's not compulsory. If I were you, I'd give this a miss. :Laughing:

    Nip over to Chester and get some sticky toffee cheese from the indoor market. Does'nt smell of cheese, in fact it does'nt taste of cheese either, just sticky toffee pudding. I loved it.:thumb:

    You're so right Rob. They're very high in calcium so you'd have bones like scaffolding which is long and thin - move over weightwatchers! :rollonfloor::rollonfloor::rollonfloor:
