GOUGèRES ALLA PECORINO ROMANO
Gougères alla Pecorino Romano
Classically Gougères are made with Gruyere cheese. A very savory cheese indeed. But since I was not going to run to the store for 1 thing, I decided to use my Pecorino Romano instead. While P. Romano is a deliciously savory cheese, it does not contain the same notes as Gruyere. I had originally thought of exchanging some of the butter for Bacon Fat, but "Chickened Out" at the last minute. Literally... I used Chicken Stock instead of plain water to give it a little more savoriness. These can be cooled and filled, or frozen on the baking sheet in the freezer and moved to a freezer bag and stored for 2 months. Simply rewarm them at 300 for 10-15 minutes.
