Bob's Red Mill makes some of the best flours out there to bake with. I love these savory little puffs that are made with Bob's Dark Rye Flour.
Savory Rye Gougeres
Yields 24 smallish puffs
1 cup water
1 Tablespoon buttermilk powder
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup bread flour
1/2 cup Bob's Red Mill Dark Rye Flour
1 teaspoon caraway seeds
1 Tablespoon dried onion flakes
1 1/2 ounces grated Asiago cheese
Preheat oven to 425°F degrees. Line a couple of baking sheets with parchment paper.
Bring the water, buttermilk powder and butter to a simmer in a medium sauce pot. Add the flours and reduce the heat to low while stirring constantly for 2-3 minutes. The mixture should form a ball. Take off the heat and let the flour mixture cool to room temperature.
Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add the remaining ingredients.
Drop by the heaping tablespoon onto parchment paper lined baking sheets. Place in 425°F degree oven for 15 minutes and then reduce the oven temperature to 375°F degrees and continue baking for 7-10 minutes, until lightly puffed, cracked and golden brown. Remove from the oven and place on a cooling rack. Pierce each puff with a knife to release the steam.
Serve warm on their own or with your favorite soup, or split and fill with spinach dip, warm pastrami, Swiss cheese and mustard, roast turkey, onion and provolone cheese or whatever else tickles your fancy.
