FFwD: Pumpkin Gorgonzola Flan
I saved the last of the French Fridays with Dorie recipes for Thanksgiving Dinner.
That would be the Pumpkin Gorgonzola Flans. Only those loving that combination were present for dinner (all two of us), while the pumpkin-blue cheese hater was out of town. Her loss.
This is certainly an easy dish to prepare. My only alteration in the future would be to add twice as much gorgonzola. The cheese loses its strength in the flan, leaving only a soft, salty goodness, so I think more would be just fine.
As you can tell from the photo, the Potato Gratin made a reappearance at the holiday dinner table. It's wonderful that both dishes cook at the same temperature for a similar amount of time.
I'm looking forward to the December FFwD selections. One of the losers will be on the menu for tonight's dinner. Turkey sandwiches and soup -- how can you go wrong with that combination during freezing southern California evenings?
