My family and friends LOVE these poppers! While the Gouda adds a nice smoky dimension, I have made with other cheeses as well...still tastes great. I spray the parchment paper with olive oil spray first. Adapted from The Food Network. Hope you enjoy!

This was GREAT!! We didn't have as many guests as we expected so I figured that we would have quite a few left over. There were only two left!! I made about a third on my smoker and the rest on the grill. Each type had its own distinct appeal. No one could decide which one was better.

We tried this the other day but prepared it all on the smoker-incredible! We used farmers cheese instead of gouda and smoked it ourselves. A couple people said they were the best poppers they had ever had!
