OK, for this one you will need to spend a bit of time in a hot kitchen, but they’re amazingly fast to make. Gougères are great to have for an easy apero and it’s not every day that you can make something that looks and tastes so good, yet takes such little effort.
One of the problems that I have with a lot of food programs in the US is that the preparation is too detailed and complicated. Sure they can be tasty to eat but few people have enough time to invest in such meals. Cooking should be an enjoyable experience but it also has to fit into modern work schedules. These gougères certainly fit the bill.
What’s nice about these is that you can play around with the type of cheese (Parmesan works well, for example) or you can add other options such as a bit of chili peppers or whatever. A lot of times I run out of something in the kitchen but find something else, try it, and it just works. Go ahead, keep it simple but give it a try.
