Burgundians relish a little snack with a glass of wine, and many variations on these choux puffs flavored with cheese are sold in local pastry shops. Gougères sometimes come stuffed with goat cheese or a creamy filling, and in one inventive version, Gougère Plate au Fromage de Chèvre, the dough is spread flat and topped like pizza with sliced tomato and herbs.
