  • 2 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 2 tbsp all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup milk*
  • 1 1/3 cup shredded smoked gouda cheese


  1. Place butter in a saucepan set over low-medium heat. Once melted, whisk in the flour until combined.
  2. Add milk and whisk to evenly mix. Keep whisking as the mixture begins to thicken, about 10 or so minutes, or until it's to a point where it can thickly coat the whisk (or a spoon).
  3. Once the mixture has begun to thicken, add the cheese. Stir or whisk frequently as the cheese melts and the dip becomes smooth and creamy. Serve immediately.

Recipe Notes

*I used 1% milk, but use your preferred variety.

This smoked gouda dip sets up as it cools, so it is best served immediately. Reheat leftover portions on the stovetop over low heat, stirring until it becomes creamy and warm again.
