Christmas Appetizer Ring
- Savory choux
- 85 g eggs
- 48 g milk
- 48 g water
- 48 g butter
- 54 g flour
- 40 g chorizo
- 50 g grated cheese
- 1 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp sugar

- 1 tbsp golden sesame seeds
- 1/2 tsp paprika

- 150 g gouda cheese cubes
- Fruits or vegetables of your choice
- Aneth, laurel or rosemary stalks
Preheat your oven at 160 C / 320 F degrees.
Heat the butter into a sauce pan with the milk, water and chorizo cut in quarters. Stop heating when the butter has melted and leave to rest for 10 minutes.
Remove the 4 chorizo pieces and heat to a boil.
Lower to medium heat and add the flour, sugar and salt. Mix vigorously with a spatula until homogeneous.
Keep on mixing while your sauce pan is still heating slowly for 2 minutes and make sure that the pastry won't stick to the bottom of your pan.
Remove the pan from the heat and add one egg and whisk until homogeneous.
Add the second egg and whisk.
Add the cheese and chorizo cut in small pieces, combine.
Pour the pastry into your pastry bag and pipe small doughs on a silicon baking mat or a baking paper.
Cook for 25 minutes (a little bit longer if you make large doughs).
When cooked, place on a cooling rack.

Make balls of cheese with a teaspoon.
Roll each cheese ball in the bowl.
Place the aneth stalks as a ring on your serving plate.
Add the savory choux, goat cheese balls, gouda cubes and your fruits.
