Light and almost ethereal, taking a bite of a still-warm gougère is a magical experience. I served them recently at my book club dinner as an appetizer, and people went absolutely crazy for them. “You made these?” I felt like a celebrity chef for a few minutes as they all clustered around the tray. Someone requested I make them for her company’s upcoming cocktail party. I declined, saying, “You can make them yourself, they don’t take long at all.” A dubious stare ensued.
Armed with a wooden spoon, you can make these impressive, savory French cheese puffs. The recipe starts in a saucepan, simple and straightforward. Boil water and butter, add flour all at once, and stir, stir, stir. The mixture will become thick and glossy. Let it cool slightly, and then add eggs one at a time, thoroughly stirring after each addition. Not quite a full upper body workout, but you will be moving the spoon for a while. You can also put the mixture into the stand mixer if you prefer.
Served warm, they are over-the-top amazing. Room temp they make an excellent, fancy substitute for dinner rolls or even made up into little sandwiches. Once you see how easy they are to prepare, you will put them on your go-to recipe list.
