Gruyere Gougere Waffle Puffs

Author Notes:
If you have a waffle iron, this is a lot easier way to make choux puffs, and you don't need a piping bag or an oven!

Serves: 4


  • 1 cup Water
  • 4 ounces Unsalted Butter, cut into tablespoons
  • 1 cup AP flour (or a mix of white whole wheat and white flours)
  • 1/2 teaspoon Kosher Salt
  • 4 large eggs, whisked together
  • Pinch Freshly Ground Pepper
  • Pinch of Cayenne
  • 1 cup Grated Gruyere
In This Recipe


  1. In a saucepan, bring to boil water through pepper. Add butter, turn down to simmer and stir til butter melts. Dump in flour and stir quickly for a few minutes til mass leaves sides of pan. Remove from heat, cool 5-10 minutes , beat in each egg until incorporated. Mixture may seem curdled but it will come together into a smooth dough. Add gruyere. .
  2. Pre heat a non-stick waffle iron on medium high. Open and spray insides with non- stick spray. Spread 1/4 cup mound of choux pastry in each section and close lid. Cook 5-10 minutes til well browned on both sides. Make a slit in the side to check if it is cooked in the center; if it is still wet, close lid for another minute. ( If the batch of waffles cooks unevenly, change to cooking one at a time.) Serve
