Gougeres with Ham

Rated as 3 out of 5 Stars

"All you need to make gougeres, the French version of a cheese puff, is a good choux pastry recipe, add cheese and, in this case, ham and that's it! Gougeres are generally used as an aperitif, but my children love to eat them with vegetable soup!"

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Combine water, butter, and salt in a saucepan and bring to a boil. As soon as the mixture boils, remove from heat and pour in 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons flour in a single motion. Mix thoroughly with a wooden spoon until well combined. Stir in eggs, 1 at a time, beating well after each addition, until a smooth, sticky paste forms. Mix Gruyere cheese and ham into the dough until well combined.
  3. Drop large tablespoonfuls of dough onto the prepared baking sheet, leaving ample space between each dollop, as gougeres will rise during baking.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown and puffed up, about 20 minutes. Transfer gougeres to a plate and allow to cool.

Make sure you don't make this bigger than a tablespoon size otherwise the inside will taste a little raw. I missed the word tablespoon size and just saw dollop and I guess my dollop was too hug...
