I’m in the Mooda for some Gouda appetizers
                                                                             Serves around 30 guests                 
OBJ: TCW be able to satisfy her craving for Gouda in an un-entrée-like way

30-40 of your favorite larger sized crackers
½ block of Gouda cheese (around 4 oz), freshly grated
1 large tomato, sliced thin and then quartered
2 C Arugula lettuce
S & P (salt and pepper)

1.      Preheat your oven to 400 degrees
2.      On a large baking sheet covered with foil, lay out all of your crackers about 1 in apart
3.      On top of each cracker, place about 1-2 TBS of arugula (or grab lettuce with thumb and pointer fingers  and put on all you can hold)
4.      On top of arugula, place one piece of tomato
5.      On top of tomato, sprinkle about 2 TBS of Gouda
6.      Sprinkle all crackers with S & P
7.      Place in oven for around 8 minutes, or until cheese is melted and a little golden
8.      Transfer to platter and spread the goodiesJ

** As the pictures show, I served this with more Gouda, crackers and some sliced roasted eggplant to round out the platter.**
