FFwD6: Pumpkin-Feta Flans

Pumpkin and Feta Flan

Hey! It’s post number six of French Fridays with Dorie. This is actually more than the sixth week, but I missed a couple. For November, there’s not a definite schedule, just four recipes to do on the Friday of your choosing. This Friday Thursday PM, I chose to post about Pumpkin-Gorgonzola Flans, but since I am not a huge blue cheese fan, I substituted feta cheese.

Again, the cookbook is Around My French Table by Dorie Greenspan and you should go buy it!

Here are a few notes from my flan-making experience:

1. Since there are only two of us, I halved the recipe. This required a little futzing with the egg yolk vs. whole egg combo. I went with two full eggs, instead of 1 1/2 whole eggs and one yolk. So, I think I had a tiny bit more egg white, but this way I didn’t waste any egg.

2. I added 1 minced garlic clove because it is impossible for me to make anything savory without garlic. It can’t be done, I tell you.

3. I also added about a 1/2 teaspoon of dried, rubbed sage.

4. These would be a great addition to Thanksgiving and I’m very tempted to make them again but there’s only two of us this year and I’m already cooking enough for a family of six ten 14….!

Assembling the ingredients in my processor.


Ready to go in the oven (in their hot water bath).


Thanks again to the FFwD team for hosting a great event!
