 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
      1/2   c            Water
      1/2   c            Unsalted butter,
                         Cut into bits
      1/2   c            All purpose flour
    2       lg           Eggs
      1/4   lb           Stilton, crumbled
                         (about 1 cup)
    4       sl           Bacon, cooked crisp
                         And crumbled fine
    3       tb           Minced scallions
 
   In a small heavy saucepan combine the water, the butter, and a pinch
   of salt and bring the mixture to a boil over high heat. Reduce the
   heat to moderate, add the flour all at once, and with a wooden spoon,
   beat the mixture until it pulls away and forms a ball. Remove the pan
   from the heat, add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each
   addition, and stir in the Stilton, the bacon, the scallion, and salt
   and pepper to taste. Drop rounded teaspoons of the batter two inches
   apart onto lightly buttered baking sheets and bake the puffs in the
   middle of a preheated 425 degree oven for 15 to 20 minutes, or until
   they are crisp and golden. Makes 36 hors d'oeuvres.
