French Fridays - Pumpkin Gorgonzola Flan
Well, it's now official, I have made my first flan. Dorie was gentle with me and this was a really easy recipe. It was also my first flop. My husband and I both liked them, but not enough to make them again. The texture was really nice though, smooth and creamy. Also, if blue cheese scares you, it really is mellow in this dish. I served them with sour cream and some maple syrup drizzled on top, if there is a next time I would advise against the sour cream, the dish is rich and creamy already. Don't let this one scare you, it's so quick and you never know, this may be a huge hit for your taste buds.
Right out of the oven, the walnuts were perfectly toasted.
A nice simple dinner. I served the flans with a simple salad dressed with a white wine vinaigrette. It was a nice combination.
