Today, I had the opportunity to purchase 5# of Gorgonzola Cheese (Athenos brand) for $1 at my favorite playground, 99 Only.

Any good ideas for using Gorgonzola??

Use a fork to mash some of it plus some rice wine vinegar into a thin dressing.

Pour into half an avocado.

Eat with spoon.

Yummy, yum! Lucky you!
I put a dab on top of a broiled NY strip steak or grilled burger.
You could make a spinach dip with it in it. Crumble in into a greens salad. Crumble it on a white pizza with bacon....

We make a Fig and Prosciutto pizza that uses gorgonzola. It is really good. Gorgonzola souffle. I'll have to give it more thought as those are off the top of my head.

A bruschetta with pinot noir braised onions, arugula and optional prosciutto.



Obviously as part of a cheese board.

That's where I usually see it, and I'm happy when I do.

It never lasts long enough for me to use it in a recipe it gets devoured on toast. I will have to check my 99 cent place see if they have any. But dressing is always good. Or on pasta.

Salad - mixed spring greens, candied walnuts or pecans, grapefruit or very ripe pear, and gorgonzola chunks. Use a mild vinaigrette, slightly on The sweet side.

Stuff or too a hambuger.

Anything with arugula. They go together perfectly. I'm also fond of gorgonzola with mushrooms and shallots. A little goes nicely with a chicken breast or broccoli.

Sauce for a steak If you like to sauce (aka ruin) a good steak.

I've had gorgonzola Mac n cheese and gorgonzola pasta dishes (like an Alfredo sauce) or gnochi. Very rich, but if you REALLY like gorgonzola, it's worth looking for recipes.

I was going to say Mac n Cheese. Mix with some other dryer Italian cheese if it's too rich. Or asiago.
