Where’s the full recipe - why can I only see the ingredients?

Always check the publication for a full list of ingredients. An Eat Your Books index lists the main ingredients and does not include 'store-cupboard ingredients' (salt, pepper, oil, flour, etc.) - unless called for in significant quantity.

Notes about this recipe

    As the recipe headnotes promise, these puffed well and have a nice crisp exterior. I used gruyere instead of cheddar and reduced the garlic to a quarter of the amount called for in the recipe. These changes made for mildly flavored puffs which would have been fine with a filling, but since we ate them on their own, were a bit too mellow. Next time I'll follow the recipe! Recipe says you can use foil-lined cookie sheets for baking but doesn't mention greasing/flouring the foil so I didn't bother. Most of the puffs unfortunately stuck fast to the foil and lost their bottoms as I tried to remove them. Next time I'll grease/flour the foil - or perhaps the puffs will behave better with the cheddar cheese called for in the recipe...
