Smoky Gouda Cheese Soup

Smoky Gouda Cheese Soup is delicious. Cheesy with a wonderful but subtle smoky flavor. The smokiness comes not only from the cheese but also from the bacon. If you can’t find smoked Gouda cheese, use regular Gouda. Living in America’s Dairyland, I have access to some of the best cheese made. Smoky Gouda cheese is one of the specialty cheeses that we have recently discovered and fallen in love with. Gouda cheese is one of those overlooked cheeses that needs to be brought into the spotlight. Serve Smoky Gouda Cheese Soup with Cheese and Chive Sourdough Biscuits Nothing tastes better on a sourdough biscuit than cheesy, smoky, hot soup. Perfection!

Gouda Cheese

Hot cheesy soup is perfect on a cold winters day or in my book, any day is a good day for soup. Gouda Cheese is often used when making fondue. Why? Because it melts beautifully, making it the perfect cheese to use in soups, dips and fondue. Gouda cheese has a mild flavor which is another reason why Gouda works so well in soup. With it’s mild flavor all of the ingredients blend together well and the vegetables and bacon seem to shine through. We hope you try Smoky Gouda Cheese Soup and love it as much as we do.
