Course Appetizer, Bread
Servings 4 dozen


  • 1 cup Water
  • 7 tbsp Unsalted butter
  • 1 tbsp Kosher salt
  • 1-1/4 cups All-purpose Flour
  • 4 Large Eggs
  • 6 oz Fiscalini Farm House Cheddar Grated
  • 1 tsp Freshly Ground Black Pepper


  • Preheat the oven to 450°F. Line two baking sheets with Silpats or parchment paper.
  • In a medium saucepan, combine the water, butter, and salt, bring to a boil. Add flour, reduce heat to medium, stir with a wooden spoon until mixture forms a ball and the excess moisture has evaporated.
  • Transfer to bowl of a mixer fitted with the paddle and beat for about 30 seconds at medium speed to cool slightly. Add eggs and continue to mix until completely combined and the batter has a smooth, silky texture.
  • Check the consistency of the batter. It should form a peak with a tip that falls over. If it is too stiff, beat in the white of an additional egg. Check again and, if necessary, add the yolk. Finally, mix in 3/4 cup of the Cheese and adjust the seasoning with salt and pepper.
  • Scoop gougère batter onto baking sheet, leaving about 2 inches between the gougères.
  • Bake for 7 to 8 minutes or until they puff and hold their shape. Reduce the heat to 350°F and bake for an additional 20 to 25 minutes. When the gougères are done, they should be a light golden brown color.
  • Remove the pans from the oven and serve the gougères while hot.
