Oh holy night….make this and then put it on everything. Meat, veggies, bread (if you eat that). I considered eating it by the spoonful and then settled for scooping another spoonful onto my cauliflower and licking the spoon. I felt better about myself that way.
It’s kind of a cross between an alfredo and a macaroni and cheese sauce, nice and thick with awesome texture. Seriously, you will not be disappointed! (In the photo, it’s on some awesome roasted orange cauliflower…yes, it was orange when I bought it, it’s not bad lighting. Promise!)
1/2 cup butter
5 oz cream cheese
1 cup heavy cream
5-6 ounces of smoked gouda (not exact because I ate about 3 chunks while I was cooking)
1/4 tsp black pepper
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp smoked paprika
1 tsp parsley
1 tsp garlic powder
Melt the butter and cream cheese in the heavy cream over medium-low heat. Stir frequently, you’ll cry if it scorches! Add the shredded gouda and the spices, stirring until it’s all smooth and melty. Try not to eat the entire recipe.
