Gouda in Puff Pastry

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!

    1. This is just as amazing. The mustard takes it over the top.

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

    1. How was the fondue adventure? I have not made that in years.

  3. 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 :).

    1. Thank you Tanya! I was called cheese my entire life. I have another friend that calls me Cheddar.

  4. 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.

    1. We would love too!!! We pronounce it the wrong American way. Goo-da.

  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.

    1. 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?

    1. 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. What a great pairing of flavors. It looks impressive.

    1. It looks impressive, but is ridiculously easy to make.

  8. 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!

    1. This makes me happy Aimee!

  9. I made this for my Dutch friends last night at a dinner party – it was a HUGE hit. Thanks for sharing a new way to serve Gouda, we’ve got lots of it here!

    1. Yeah Jeanelle! Jealous of your gouda!

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

    1. Sure, why not?

  11. Is this still good served room temperature? Thanks!

    1. It is okay at room temp, but much better warm.

      1. I know this is an older post, but I am hoping you will be able to tell me how to keep it warm during a party?

        1. It usually is eaten before it gets cold, but you could always stick in a warm oven for a few minutes if you needed to.

  12. 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.

    1. That sounds like a great way to make it! I am going to have to try that next time.

  13. 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.

    1. 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.

  14. 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!!

    1. Jelly or jam, apple butter would be good too.

  15. If I make it for someone as a gift, should I bake it before and then have them heat it up when they want to eat it? How long and what temp.?
    Thanks.

    1. I think so, I would add the recipe. This needs to be eaten when its made.
