Gougeres - FFWD

The first recipe for FFWD is for these Gougeres (cheese puffs) from Around My French Table by Dorie Greenspan.
Great & easy recipe! Mine were mild in flavor, made with Parano cheese. I got 66 gougeres out of the recipe by using a scoop equal to 1 tablespoon. 

We ate the warm Gougeres while cooking dinner which was Haddock & Carrots in Burnt Orange Oil and plain Wehani Rice (rice is not in the picture :)).

The fish was great, too. Light & fresh with a lot of orange sauce for the rice. The recipe is actually for red snapper but the fish market did not have it & the haddock was a good substitute. It is from Recipes 1-2-3 by Rozanne Gold.


  1. Your Gougeres look great! I think I must have made mine too big because I only got about 20 and they deflated as soon as I took them out of the oven.

  2. Thanks, Debbie! The tablespoon size makes for a one-bite gougere :). Thanks for posting about yours...I was going to make some larger ones tonight (my DD & a friend will be here for dinner) & will have to be careful they are not too big.

  3. Outside of the fact that I think I have that same tablecloth, your gougeres looks smashing on it! So glad you (and I) are a part of FFwD. I, like others, made them too small - have a TON in the freezer!

  4. Thanks, mikejdunlap! Nice tablecloth you have :). Plus, I love your blog!

    I looked but cannot find what you mean about the NAME/URL - what exactly do I do? I can click on your name but it brings me to an unused blog and not So, I don't know if that is something that Blogger is linking wrong?

  5. Love that plate of gougeres! I made half a batch and got 19 of them. They quickly disappeared.

  6. Beautiful gougeres. I think next time I'll make mine smaller.

  7. Hey!! Thank you for stopping by my blog :)
    Your gougères look delicious! I've never tried parano before, but I'll be sure to look for it next time at the grocery store!
