Smoked Gouda Bruschetta Appetizer

Smoked Gouda Bruschetta | 2CookinMamas

A great appetizer for fall football games or your next dinner party. Quick and easy to make with a bakery sourdough baguette, jarred basil pesto, shallots and smoked Gouda cheese. You’d better make a double batch as they go really quick!

Smoked Gouda Bruschetta


  • 1 sourdough baguette
  • 1 10-oz jar basil pesto
  • 6 shallots, chopped fine
  • 1-2 cups Smoked Gouda, sliced
  • Garnish: basil (optional)


Preheat broiler. Spray a cookie sheet with nonstick cooking spray.

Cut sourdough into 1/2″ diagonal slices. Place bread slices on prepared cookie sheet. Spread each slice with basil pesto. Sprinkle shallots on top of pesto then lay a slice of smoked Gouda cheese on each slice.

Place under broiler for 2-4 minutes. Watch carefully as it will go from brown to burnt very quickly. Garnish with chopped basil.

Serves 6.

Wine/Beer Pairing: For all the beer lovers out there, pair this cheesy appetizer with a Pale Ale, Brown Ale, Lager or Stout. For wine lovers try a Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Pinto Grigio or Champagne. Red wine lovers aren’t left out either – try a Beaujolais.
