Blue Cheese and Mushroom Gougeres

  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, plus 1 tablespoon
  • 8 ounces mushrooms, finely chopped
  • 2 shallots, finely chopped
  • 2 pinches of kosher salt
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • few grinds of black pepper
  • 1 cup flour
  • 4 eggs
  • 3/4 cup crumbled blue cheese
Cooking Directions
  1. Heat the oven to 425º Line baking sheets with parchment paper or with a silicone mat.
  2. In a large skillet, over medium-high heat, melt 1 tablespoon of butter. Add the mushrooms, shallots and a pinch of salt. Cook until tender and lightly browned, 4 to 5 minutes. Set aside.
  3. In a medium saucepan over medium heat, combine 1 stick of butter, water, milk, a pinch of salt and pepper. Bring to a simmer, then add the flour all at once. Stirring vigorously with a wooden spoon, until the mixture becomes a ball that separates from the pan, 1 to 2 minutes. Stir for an additional minute to dry out ball slightly. Transfer contents to a large bowl, with an electric mixer, beat on medium speed for 2 minutes to allow the mixture to cool slightly. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating thoroughly after each addition.
  4. Stir in the reserved mushroom mixture and the blue cheese. Scooping by the tablespoonful, place walnut-sized dollops on the prepared baking sheets, leaving 1 1/2 inches of space between each or transfer the dough into a large zip-lock plastic baggie. Snip off one of the corners and pipe the mixture into place on the prepared baking sheets. Bake for 10 minutes, turn heat down to 375º and bake an additional 20 to 25 minutes or until golden brown.
