These bacon, goats’ cheese and onion chutney savoury pastries are absolutely delicious and such a different way to enjoy a stack of profiteroles!

Method:

  1. Place the butter in a saucepan with 250ml of water. Gently heat until the butter has melted, then bring to a boil.
  2. Remove the pan from the heat and quickly add the flour, sugar, and salt, stirring vigorously to form a paste.
  3. Whilst the paste cools slightly, whisk the eggs together in a bowl. Add the eggs to the paste, a little at a time, stirring until you have a smooth, glossy mixture.
  4. Preheat your oven to 200C/180(fan)/gas mark 6. Fill a piping bag with the choux dough and use it to pipe 20 dollops onto a lined baking sheet. Bake for 15 minutes, or until light and golden.
  5. Whilst the profiteroles are cooling, grill the bacon until crisp and cut into small pieces using a pair of scissors. Set aside whilst you make the filling.
  6. Whisk the double cream until soft peaks form. Fold in the goats cheese and season with a little black pepper. Pop the filling in a piping bag fitted with a long, slim nozzle.
  7. Pipe a generous amount of filling into each profiterole. Spread the tops with red onion chutney before dipping in the chopped bacon pieces. Serve immediately.
