Gouda Stuffed Crusty Loaves: Hearty crusty bread with a gooey aged gouda center. Perfect for soups and for sharing.
I’ll admit this bread takes some time to make.
I will also admit that it’s the most requested bread that I make.
The first time I tried the recipe I was a tad nervous as the starter doesn’t really look like most starters.
Most starters are a little wet and bubble up.
This starts is more like dough and you sit it out overnight.
It does form little bubbles but not like what you get out of a normal starter.
But when it all came together it was glorious.
You can turn this into two larger loaves or four smaller ones.
I like the smaller ones best but I tend to use them as breads for soup and I like they everyone gets their own mini loaf of bread.
Definitely splurge on some decent cheese for these.
If you are going to take the time to make them then make them right.
Lucky enough to live near a Trader Joes? They have a great cheese selection for decent prices.
Same with Costco and Sam’s Club…you just might end up with a lot of cheese…which really isn’t a bad thing.
