What you need
What you need
Tube of Primula Original Cheese
  • Butter – 40g
  • Flour – 55g

  • Two eggs
  • Primula Original Cheese/Cheese ‘n’ Chives/Cheese ‘n’ Ham

How you do it
How you do it
  • Pre-heat your oven at 200°C Fan
  • Combine and beat the butter and flour in a saucepan over a medium heat until it becomes dough-like
  • Add warm milk to the dough-like mix and keep beating it until it all forms together
  • Transfer the mix from the hot pan to a separate bowl to allow it to cool whilst continuing to beat the mixture
  • Once cooled, beat in two eggs one by one until the mixture is smooth and a pipeable consistency
  • Transfer into a piping bag and pipe individual balls of dough onto an oven tray lined with greaseproof paper – aim for a rough golf-ball diameter
  • Place your choux buns into the oven for 10-15 minutes until they’ve risen and are a golden-brown colour
  • Whilst your choux buns are cooking, prep your toppings of choice. We recommend the following perfect Primula pairings:

    • Cheese ‘n’ Chives: Chop a handful of fresh chives ready for sprinkling over the top
    • Cheese ‘n’ Ham: Crisp up some streaky bacon and chop finely ready for sprinkling over the top
    • Original Cheese: We like it just how it is, but this is your chance to get creative with whatever topping you might like!
  • Once your choux buns are ready, bring them out of the oven and poke a small hole into the bottom of each bun using a skewer (or similar) and allow your buns to cool slightly
  • Once cooled, take your chosen tube of Primula and squeeze the cheese into the hole on the bottom of your buns until a small amount can be seen coming out. Add an extra squeeze of Primula to the top, sprinkle with your topping of choice – and enjoy!
