gouda in puff pastry appetizerYou are going to have to trust me here.  This is not the most beautiful dish that I have ever made for you.  It is monochromatic and looks pretty boring.  It is also one of the things that I make and people immediately ask for the recipe.  It is Gouda cheese, mustard and puff pastry.  That is it.  It is where I think that Gouda wants to go when it dies.  It’s that Gouda.  I could not help myself.  I am a dork.

My best friend in the entire world lives in Ohio and I miss her terribly.  We talk a few times a week, but I missing being around her.  She is awesome.  She also makes awesome appetizers.  She is kind of famous for them.  I have never met anyone that can whip up a dip, or something wrapped in something else delicious, like she can.  This is one of her infamous appetizers that I have eaten at her house countless times.  It is so easy and so good.  As good as it is when I make it, it is even better when she makes it because that means that she and I are together and not on opposite sides of the country.

I should also mention that she makes hers with Crescent Roll dough, I had puff pastry that I needed to use. Either way delicious.

  1. this looks amazing!!!! I love Gouda and have never had it in a puff pastry. I have had Brie Cheese in puff pastry and I know that’s amazing!

  2. yummm. i have a bit of gouda leftover from an adventure in fondue, can’t wait to try!

    Oh my gosh! Your site is making me hungry. Move over Food Network! I am now a subscriber. My daughter’s name is Briana, Bri for short and she is always being called “cheese”. I have a thing of Gouda in the fridge and some puffed pasrty in the freezer. Guess what I’ll be making this weekend? Thanks for stopping by my site :).

    You and Wes need to come visit me in NL, and I’ll take you to the Gouda market to watch the cheesemarket in action and worship at the alter of delicious Dutch cheeses. I’ll never be able to eat American cheeses again! And how do you pronounce Gouda? The Dutch say it like “How-da”, which was confusing to my California ears at first.

  5. I love Gouda. I’m going to make it for my Dutch friend who continues to insist on pronouncing Gouda the proper dutch way. Silly girl.

    • bakedbree says:

      I did not know until yesterday that we Americans pronounce Gouda the wrong way. I hope that you like i as much as we do.

  6. I am glad you use store-bought puff pastry. This is such a delightful after school snack. I think I have some pastry lying around. Which other cheeses will it work well with?

    • bakedbree says:

      Yes, brie is what I usually wrap in puff pastry, but any good melting cheese would work. You could change it up for the seasons. Like a caprese for summer….

  7. Lisa says:

    What a great pairing of flavors. It looks impressive.

  8. Aimee says:

    Amazing recipe! Have made it once before for a party and will be making it again tonight for a Christmas potluck… but now I know to make two ;)

    Love you blog!

    Looks very good. You could sprinkle it with poppy seeds before baking to pretty it up a bit.

    Is this still good served room temperature? Thanks!

  15. SaraVi says:

    I loved this!! Instead of serving it with apples, I actually sliced up some granny smith and baked it inside the pastry. Just a pinch of sugar on top and it was a whole new experience haha! Either way, it’s amazing and everyone at my work is going to love it. They get all my experiments.

    Can this be frozen just before baking and then taken out and baked when needed? I would like to make as an appetizer for Thanksgiving day. Sounds yummy, thanks.

    • bakedbree says:

      really don’t know. But in all honesty, it takes no time to make. I would get it ready earlier in the day and keep it in the fridge and then bake it off.

    Can we substitute the mustard? If so, what would you recommend? My partner does not like mustard so I really hope there is something else we can use. Thank you!!
