Preparation 15 minutes
Cooking time 15 to 18 minutes
Servings 4

Ingredients

  • 250 ml (1 cup) milk
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 90 g (6 tbsp) butter
  • 250 ml (1 cup) flour
  • 4 to 5 eggs
  • 250 ml (1 full cup) Gruyère or Emmenthal cheese, shredded
  • 1 pinch of nutmeg, grated
  • 1 pinch of  Cayenne pepper
  • 1 egg yolk, beaten with a bit of milk
  • Parmesan, grated

Preparation

  1. Preheat the oven to 220°C (425°F).
  2. In a saucepan, bring the milk, salt and butter to a boil.
  3. Remove from the heat.
  4. Add the flour. Stir well to dry out the dough.
  5. Add the eggs, one at a time, stirring well between each addition. 
  6. Add the cheese, nutmeg and Cayenne pepper. Stir well. 
  7. Using a tablespoon, place little balls of dough on cookie sheets covered with parchment paper or a silicone mat.
  8. Gently brush the balls of dough with the egg yolk mixture and sprinkle with some grated Parmesan.
  9. Place in the centre of the oven and bake for 15 to 18 minutes until nicely browned.
  10. Serve hot.

Note:

Unlike parchment paper, a silicon mat is reusable, resistant and sustainable. If you often bake, this is an option to be considered. It's both an eco-friendly and money-saving solution!
