This week’s French Fridays with Dorie recipe was for this quick, simple puff pastry treat. It can be served as an appetizer, or as a side, like bread. We served it as a side with Risotto. I’m not including the Risotto because it was a clean-out-the-fridge meal with Chicken, Mushrooms, and Brie that was delicious, but does not lend itself to repetition – aren’t those the most surprising meals sometimes?
Dorie mentioned using mustard with a strong flavor, so we used this Vineyard Pantry Blue Cheese Dijon. I added Sesame Seeds and Poppy Seeds. This snack is as quick to throw together as it is impressive!

Those look really great! I’m sure it was wonderful as a side.
Sounds like a great side to risotto! & that mustard sounds interesting.

I’ve been seeing lots of blue cheese mustards in the FFwD posts this week – I need to get myself to a gourmet shop ASAP! Your batons look perfect!

They MAKE BLUE CHEESE DIJON????!!! Why hasn’t anyone told me of this?!! Wow. I must find me some!
I’ve never heard of blue cheese mustard, but it sounds interesting. We ate the batons as a snack and along with a salad for lunch. Yum!

We used the Maille blue cheese dijon and loved it. Nana and I are big mustard fans so this was a huge hit in our homes – we would have liked it even if it was more complicated to prepare (but were thrilled that is was so easy đź™‚ And your risotto sounded great – fridge cleaner or not !
Nice choices! They look beautiful and the pastry puffed beautifully.
