Pepper Cheese & Chive Gougère
Get started!


1 cup water

1/2 cup Land O Lakes® Butter

1 cup all-purpose flour

1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning  

1/4 teaspoon garlic salt

4 large Land O Lakes® Eggs

1 1/2 cups shredded hot pepper jack cheese

2 tablespoons chopped fresh chives

 *Substitute 1/8 teaspoon each dried basil leaves, dried marjoram leaves and dried oregano leaves, and a dash of rubbed sage.

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Heat oven to 400°F. Line baking sheets with parchment paper or lightly spray baking sheets with no-stick cooking spray.

  2. STEP 2

    Combine water and butter in 2-quart saucepan. Cook over medium heat 5-7 minutes until mixture comes to a boil. Add flour, Italian seasoning and garlic salt. Stir vigorously until mixture forms a ball. Remove from heat. Add 1 egg at a time, beating after each addition until smooth. Stir in 1 cup cheese and chives.

  3. STEP 3

    Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls onto prepared baking sheets. Top each with about 1/2 teaspoon remaining cheese. Bake 18-22 minutes or until puffed and browned. Serve warm.

Tip #1

To make ahead, bake as directed. When completely cooled, place baking sheets in freezer until puffs are frozen. Place frozen puffs in resealable plastic freezer bags or containers; return to freezer. To reheat, place puffs onto baking sheet; bake in 350°F oven 8-10 minutes or until heated through.
