French Fridays with Dorie: Pumpkin-Gorgonzola Flans

They can’t all be gems. We didn’t care for these pumpkin flans, but they sure were easy and pretty.

I suppose it’s no big thing that there will be a few FFwD recipes that we don’t care for. It niggles a little at me, because I like Dorie so much, but really, some foods just aren’t to our tastes.

This is one of them.

It’s pretty, and super-easy to make, and if it’s to your taste, you’ll like it. We just didn’t.

My changes: I used toasted chopped pecans instead of walnuts. I left the gorgonzola out of some of them, on request. I do love gorgonzola, but I’m alone in that around here.

I made my own pumpkin puree from a Sugar Pie pumpkin, but they didn’t taste at all of pumpkin to us, and had very little flan-like consistency. They’re passable little egg cups.

Oh, well. Once in a while, I guess we’re just gonna hit one we don’t want to gobble up. When that happens, I’ll just make one of the others!

  1. I’m so impressed that you took the time to make your own pumpkin puree, but, to think it didn’t even taste like pumpkin…how disappointing that must have been! They do look beautiful! My family absolutely loves flan, so it will be interesting to see the reactions when I make this recipe.

  2. Bummer it wasn’t as good as you would have liked. It sure looks good. Im going to try this one soon. I may have to add something extra to make it better!!
    I made the potatoes this week..they are so good!!

  3. I’m impressed you made your own puree! You’re right: we’re probably going to hit a recipe or two that’s not a crowd-pleaser. I will admit that when I made these, what made the dish passable was that I included Gorgonzola. Kudos for trying it anyway!

  4. Too bad they weren’t a hit for you. While I liked them at my house…my boys did not. It’s a shame, I was hoping they were going to make it on our Thanksgiving day table.

  5. I went the easy way and used the canned pumpkin, even though I had several bags of frozen pumpkin puree (saving them for pumpkin gnocchi:)
    The flan worked for me, and for the Husband, and for the whole family. But I can see how it would not please everybody (Hello, Mom!)
    At least you tried, and that’s all it counts (at least that’s my mantra for the kids).

  6. I made my own puree too, deliciously so !!
    Ur rite ,they dont taste muc like pumpkin and infact the next day they had a nice crab meat flavor which i loved!

  7. I also cook down my own pumpkin. I love using it in several fall dishes and sometimes eat it as a veggie…like butternut squash. Your flans look great too bad no one enjoyed them. I have to say this is one dish that hasn’t appealed to me, either. I’ll find out soon, this is my pick for the week.
