Cheese Gougères

Catégorie : SavoryUncategorized
Here is my recipe for cheese gougères. They have an extremely tasty   texture. Crispy on the outside, they reveal a melting heart on the inside. You can make them any size, but I like them smaller because that way they crisp up even more with the cheese on top. A small wonder very simple to carry out.

Recipe for gougères:

-250ml of water
-250ml of eggs (you need a volume for the choux pastry to succeed! that’s about 5 eggs)
-140g of flour
-110g of butter
-5g of salt
-pepper, nutmeg
-150g of grated cheese (Emmental is not as good!!) + a little for sprinkling

Preheat the oven to 180°C.
Put water, butter and salt in a saucepan.

Bring to a boil over low heat.

 Add the flour all at once off the heat.

 Stir well (even quite briskly!!) then put back on low heat for 1 minute to dry out the dough. It is necessary to mix constantly. The dough will come off the bottom of the pan.

  Pour the dough into a bowl.


Add the 250ml of beaten eggs little by little to the dough (stirring well each time).


Stir vigorously to blend.


Add grated cheese. 

Add pepper and grated nutmeg.

With a piping bag, make small piles. Never mind the shape, they will swell.

Sprinkle grated cheese on top. 

Bake for 18-20 minutes at 180°C. Enjoy it hot! The gougères will be crispy on top and melt in the mouth. 

They are perfect for a sunny aperitif!
