These cheesy bites are a great way to get a lot of taste when you are pushed for time and pennies, which means you can make batches of these allowing more time spent with your loved ones.

Preheat the oven to gas 7, 220°C, fan 200°C. 

Line two baking trays with nonstick baking paper.

Put the milk, butter and salt into a medium pan and heat gently until the milk just begins to bubble and the butter has melted. Remove from the heat and add the flour; beat with a wooden spoon until you have a smooth dough. Return to the heat and cook for a further 2 minutes, stirring all the time. Remove from the heat and allow to cool for 3-4 minutes. 

When the dough is cool enough to handle, season with freshly ground pepper and add ¼ of the beaten egg mixture, stirring well with a spoon until fully incorporated. Stir in another ¼ of the egg mixture. Repeat until all the egg mixture is incorporated.

Mix in the pizza cheese and half the Parmesan. Spoon the mixture into a piping bag with a round medium-sized nozzle. If you don’t have one, use a freezer bag and snip off the corner.

Pipe 2½cm (1in) circles of dough onto the baking trays – ideally they should be around 2½cm (1in) tall. Sprinkle over the remaining Parmesan and cook for 15-20 minutes, or until golden brown.
