Red Apple Smoked Gouda Cheese


Time: 30 min cook / 10 min prep
Servings: 4

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

Directions:

  1. Cook gnocchi al dente in salted, boiling water until gnocchi begins to float in water.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
