Bread for Valentines

February 5th, 2007 at 02:04 am

I am in the mood for this bread -- maybe
because I just had pizza.


Gougere Bread:

From Linda Larsen,Your Guide to Busy Cooks.
This fabulous recipe is simply a cream puff dough with cubed and grated cheese added. It makes a wonderful accompaniment to salads for lunch.
Prep Time : 20min
Cook Time : 40min
Type of Prep : Bake
Cuisine : French
Occasion : Party, Spring


2 cups whole milk
1/2 cup butter
1 tsp. salt
pinch of pepper
2 cups flour
8 eggs
1/2 lb. Gruyere or Swiss cheese, cut into small cubes
1/4 cup finely grated Parmesan cheese


In large saucepan, combine milk, butter, salt, and pepper and bring to a rolling boil. All at once, add the flour. Cook over low heat, stirring constantly with a wooden spoon, until the mixture forms a ball and leaves the sides of the pan clean.
Remove pan from heat and beat in the eggs, one at a time, making sure each egg is thoroughly beaten into the batter before adding the next. You can use a hand-held electric mixture or a wooden spoon for this step. Mix in the cubed cheese.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Grease two cookie sheets or line with Silpat or parchment paper. Scoop out dough, in pieces about the size of an egg, and place them on prepared cookie sheets in the shape of a ring, leaving a space in the middle 3" in diameter. Using a smaller spoon, place smaller pieces of dough on top of the first layer. Repeat on second cookie sheet to make a second ring. Brush gougeres with a little more milk and sprinkle each one with 2 Tbsp. of the grated Parmesan cheese.
Bake at 375 degrees F for about 40-50 minutes, until the breads are well puffed, firm, and golden brown. Serve immediately! 8-10 servings
