Gougère is a classic French pastry that’s known for richly cheesy and savory flavors and our recipe encompasses all of that with the help of a blend of cheeses including Sargento® Shredded Swiss Cheese, some minced parsley, chopped fresh dill and chives.

  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter or margarine
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup (4 oz.) Sargento® Shredded Swiss Cheese, divided
  • 1/4 cup (1 oz.) Sargento® Shredded Parmesan Cheese
  • 1 Tbsp. minced fresh parsley
  • 1 Tbsp. chopped fresh dill or 1 tsp. dried dill weed
  • 1 Tbsp. chopped fresh chives or 1 tsp. dried chives
  1. Heat 1 cup water, butter and salt to a boil in a medium saucepan. Remove from heat and add flour all at once, beating until smooth. Return saucepan to medium heat; cook 5 minutes, stirring constantly, until dough becomes stiff and pulls away from sides of pan.
  2. Remove from heat and beat in eggs, one at a time. Stir in 2/3 cup Swiss cheese, Parmesan cheese, parsley, dill and chives.
  3. Drop heaping tablespoonsful of dough on greased baking sheet creating one 15-inch ring, with dough barely touching. Sprinkle with remaining Swiss cheese. Bake in preheated 425°F oven 25 minutes or until puffed and golden brown. Serve warm.
