Ideal dish to start a nice dinner and open your appetite. Gougères is a french dish that could remind one cheese puffs. They are typically made of pâte à choux dough which is often used in french desserts like profiteroles. However, this dish is rather an appetizer than a dessert due to its savory taste.
Top few Gougères with Poppy seeds or cheese. Optionally, add smoked ham or small cubes of pork fat (lardons) into a portion of the dough.
Serve hot and accompanied with olives or skewer with cherry tomatoes and mozzarella.
