I know, I have done it again. Pancetta. It’s that porky, tasty yumminess, that I love so very much. Now these cheesy numbers are made from choux pastry which for me is the easiest pastry on the block. A positive word of warning: these are incredibly moreish. A just cooked bowl of them with disappear in literally minutes.
