The baked gougères can be cooled completely and frozen in airtight containers for up to 1 month. Reheat them in a 325° oven for 6 to 7 minutes. Do not let them get crisp.
Champagne or sparkling wine, with its appetite-stimulating effervescence, is the ideal aperitif for a celebratory dinner. The bubbles complement these rich and salty gougères. Serve a French Champagne or an Australian sparkling wine.
