What could go wrong with savoury pastry made of choux dough that’s mixed with cheese, crispy bits of fried shallots and chives all of which are baked in the oven?
Especially not with crispy outer shells with an eggy, cheesy and soft centre when you pull each of those puffs apart.
The crispy shallots is my add-on to a typical Gougère (French-style Puff Pastry) that gives the flavour a different twist. The inside is hollow and I like that despite all the cheeses used, the texture turns out to be very light.
Crispy Fried Shallots Cheese Puffs (Gougère)
Light, savoury and addictive balls of cheese puffs with a twist!
As you can see from the recipe above, it is pretty straight-forward with hardly any tricks required. More importantly, this is perfect for appetizers before a meal or served as snacks for tea-time of afternoon coffee!
