Red Apple Cheese in this recipe:
Red Apple Smoked Gouda Cheese
Time: 30 min cook / 10 min prep
Ingredients for Mornay Sauce:
- ¼ cup butter
- 2 cups milk
- ¼ cup flour
- Pinch of ground nutmeg
- ¼ white onion
- pinch of white pepper
- 6 oz Red Apple Smoked Gouda shredded
- 2 bay leaves each
- 8 Amber Beer (Lager)
Ingredients for Pasta:
- 12 oz potato gnocchi
- Cook gnocchi al dente in salted, boiling water until gnocchi begins to float in water.
- For the sauce, combine milk, onion piece, salt, pepper, and bay leaves in a saucepan. Heat on stovetop until it simmers. In a separate pan melt the butter. Once melted add the flour. Combine and cook to create a roux (thickening agent). Strain the milk to remove the solids, and return to saucepan. Combine the Roux into the milk with a whisk. Whisk thoroughly over mid/high heat until the sauce begins to thicken. Add the shredded Red Apple smoked Gouda Cheese to melt completely into the sauce and add the beer. Simmer for 10 minutes.
- Add the cooked gnocchi directly into the hot Mornay sauce. Stir to completely cover Gnocchi. Spoon Gnocchi into a deep bowl to serve. Sprinkle more finely shredded cheese on top.
