Savory Patê à ChouSavory Patê à Chou Filled with Unsweetened Dried Tart Cherries and Blue Cheese


  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup flour
  • 3-5 large eggs


In a heavy saucepan bring the milk to a boil with the butter and salt over high heat. Reduce the heat to moderate, add the flour all at once, and beat the mixture with a wooden spoon until it pulls away from the sides of the pan and forms a ball. Transfer the mixture to a bowl and with a mixer on high, beat in 3 eggs, one at a time, beating well after each egg. (The batter should be stiff enough to just hold soft peaks) If the batter is too stiff; break 1 or 2 eggs into a small bowl, beat them lightly, and add only enough to thin the batter to the proper consistency. With a small ice cream scoop or a pastry bag, portion the batter onto a lined cookie sheet and bake in a 425° oven for 10 minutes. Reduce heat to 400° and bake an additional 15-20 minutes or until puffed and golden brown. Transfer the puffs to a rack and cool completely.



Combine all ingredients.

Assembly (optional)

Cut puffs in half horizontally, spoon the filling onto the bottom half, and replace the top.


This Savory Patê à Chou Filled with Unsweetened Dried Tart Cherries and Blue Cheese makes for the perfect appetizer. If you do decide to assemble, it is a beautiful edible centerpiece for your table. How much more functional of a centerpiece could you have than an edible one?
