FFWD: Pumpkin Gorgonzola Flan

Anyone getting tired of pumpkin yet? I'm not. Just tonight I made pumpkin granola and pumpkin muffins. Keep a look out for those posts soon - this one is about the Pumpkin Gorgonzola Flans, which I chose to make for this weeks French Fridays with Dorie. I had no idea what to expect. I just couldn't reconcile pumpkin, eggs, cream, gorgonzola and walnuts all together in my mind. This is what it's all about, though, this group. Trying new things, learning new techniques, eating new food.

The combination of the smooth, creaminess of the flan, the subtle sweetness of the pumpkin, the saltiness of the gorganzola and the earthy crunch of the walnuts, came together perfectly.

Now I have to decide which November recipe to choose next!

To check out the group, head over to French Fridays With Dorie. And to buy the book (which you should!) head over to amazon. Do it!!


  1. I had the same reservation about these ingredients, but figure Dorie knows what she's doing! I'll be trying this soon...yours looks lovely!

  2. This is so good! It was so easy,too. Love your pictures.

  3. These look wonderful! I made the chicken and he P.G. tonight. Both were winners! I can't wait to make this recipe and the cake! Im looking fwd to see what you decide to make!

  4. I love all of the cheese on yours- I'll put more on mine next time. I had the same reservations about this dish, but it surprised me!
