You 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 miss 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.
