Parmesan Bread Puffs

Looking for a new side dish to serve?  Parmesan Bread Puffs are something new and different to try. They are savory puffs perfect to serve with grilled meats or along side your favorite roast.  I have even served them as an appetizer.   These puffs are a unique version of that classic baked strata, my version is not for breakfast or brunch any more!

Parmesan Rice

I don’t know about you, when I entertain, I like to have everything prepared and ready to go.  I like to have the mess of preparation out of the kitchen and enjoy my guests when they arrive.  This side dish you can make in advance and put in the oven about one hour before serving.  This is a delicious way to serve rice and perfect for entertaining.  A friend of mine commented that after I gave her this recipe, this is her favorite way to cook rice.
