Are you looking for a quick and easy cheese puffs recipe? Look no further! These cheese puffs are originally from the Burgundy region in France, where they are called gougères. You can make them with different types of cheese, depending on your liking. I made mine with Gruyère, but Emmental or Gouda are fine options as well.
Time: 30 mins (10 mins prep time, 20 mins cook time)
- 45 g butter
- 125 mL water
- ½ tsp sea salt
- 62 g flour
- 2 eggs
- 62 g Gruyère
- Preheat the oven to 200 °C. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- Add butter, water and salt to a medium saucepan on low-medium heat. Wait until the butter has melted and the water boils.
- Add flour. Stir with a wooden spoon until the mixture has formed a dough that is smooth and looks a bit ‘sweaty’.
- Transfer the mixture from the saucepan to a medium bowl away from the heat. Let it cool for a minute.
- Add the eggs 1 by 1. Stir until well combined.
- Add most of the Gruyère, mix well.
- Use 2 tablespoons to make small balls of dough and drop onto the parchment paper. Sprinkle the remaining Gruyère on top.
- Bake for 20 mins until golden brown. Serve warm.
I would recommend drinking a chardonnay from Burgundy with the cheese puffs.
