A gougère, in French cuisine, is a savory choux pastry primarily made of milk, cheese, flour and egg. Traditionally, the gougère features Gruyère cheese, which is a specialty of the Burgundy region, though other cheeses may be used.
Gougères can be made as small, finger-sized pastries, or filled with ingredients such as nutmeg, mushrooms, beef, or ham. In the latter case, the gougère is usually made using a ring or pie tin.
Gougères may be accompanied by a variety of wines such as Champagne, Côte Chalonnaise, Saint-Bris and some others.
