3-Cheese Gourgeres

I am so blessed to have 2 amazing mothers, an incredible grandmother, and several aunties that treat me like their own child. I am praising the Lord this mother's day for all the love that is showered on me from these women. One day when I am a mother I hope to be just like them. PS: only 3 days until I meet up with my momma in NYC!!
Here is one of my favorite photos of me with my mom and my mommasita.

I made these to try and imitate the incredible cheese rolls I had when we visited  The Montage Resort in Laguna. If you remember their rolls were so amazing, that I stuffed several in my purse for later, haha! These gourgeres were more like a popover texture than a roll. They are delicious and soooo good made into a tomato sandwich, but I will have to continue my search for the Montage's cheese roll recipe.

Three Cheese Gourgeres

1/2 cup dry white wine
1/4 cup water
1 stick butter
1 tsp sugar
kosher salt
1 cup flour
4 eggs, plus 1 egg yolk 
1 cup grated sharp cheddar cheese
1/2 cup crumbled blue cheese
3/4 cup grated Gruyere cheese

Preheat oven to 400.
Grate cheeses
Melt butter in a sauce pan.
Add wine, water, sugar and 3/4 tsp salt. Heat until butter is completely melted.
Add flour and stir constantly until mixture begins to pull away from sides of the pan and a film forms on the bottom.

Transform dough to your electric mixer. Beat on medium heat until slightly cooled.
Add 4 eggs, 1 at a time.

Add blue cheese and cheddar to the dough.

Spoon about 26 mounds of dough onto parchment line baking sheets.

Top each mound with Gruyere cheese.
Bake for 10 minutes. Remove and lower temp to 350 degrees.
Beat 1 egg yolk with 1 Tbsp of water for egg wash.
Brush each Gourgere with the egg wash. Place back in the oven for 20 minutes.

These were soooo delicious with a slice of tomato and fresh dill between them. YUM! 
Would be pretty served this way for a brunch or shower.

This Week's Bible Verse:
2 Peter 3:8-9
But do not forget this one thing, dear friends: With the Lord a day is like a thousand years and a thousand years are like a day. The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. Instead he is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance.
