Over the past year or two, I have fallen in love with a few different cheeses, cheeses I never tried as a kid, including gorgonzola. I think I stayed away from it when I was younger because after reading "Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs" as a child, I had it in my head that it was the gross, stinky cheese that nobody wanted to eat. I'm so happy to know that while gorgonzola might have a bit of a smell to it, it's a nice, strong, creamy blue that I could eat on pizza, in sauces, and sometimes just straight as a little snack as I'm standing in front of the open fridge...
So when I saw this recipe for Bruschetta with Gorgonzola and Honey on the blog, The Piggly-Wiggly, my mouth started to water and I HAD to have it. Luckily my friend Jenny was coming to visit that weekend, so I had a good excuse to try a few new recipes.
(the original recipe had amounts, so if you want them, see the link above. But I don't think they are really necessary for this recipe - but that's the "just wing it" cooking attitude in me I guess!)
- 1 baguette
- Olive oil
- Crumbled gorgonzola cheese
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
- Slice the baguette into 1/2 inch thick slices and place on a baking sheet Brush the top of each slice with some olive oil. Bake until each slice is slightly golden and crisp, about 7-8 minutes.
- Top each slice with a spoonful of gorgonzola cheese. Return to oven and bake until the cheese is melted, about 3 minutes.
- Place the slices onto a serving dish and drizzle with honey.
