Open breast and pound with meat mallet to a uniform thickness of 1/2 inch, working toward a rectangular shape. Season with salt and pepper. Place six Gouda slices on breast. Spread 1/2 of stuffing atop Gouda. Roll up like a pinwheel, ending with skin on top. Tie with butcher’s twine. Repeat with remaining breast. Place meat thermometer in center of one breast. Roast at 325º for about 45 minutes or until meat thermometer reaches 165º. Allow to stand for 15 minutes and slice. Serve with warmed supreme sauce.
