“I am always looking for new twists on appetizers or new additions. Here is one recipe that comes from Cooking with Patty. It is an italian recipe using soft gorgonzola cheese not to be confused with American gorgonzola. However if you only can find the crumbled American gargonzola it can work see the tweeks below. Patty writes,"I’m a Gongonzola cheese lover, but if you’ve never tasted it I suggest you to try it before preparing this recipe. Gorgonzola has a characteristic taste and a distinctive flavor and for some of you it could be too strong. The best way to taste it is to leave it out of the fridge for at least 30 minutes before serving. Don’t substitute Gorgonzola with blue cheese, Rockford or Stilton because they seem similar but they’re not. The cheese used in this recipe is the sweet variety which is creamy and slightly spicy, not the spicy and hard type which resembles the above mentioned cheeses." See below for ways to make Patty's or the Americanized version. Both are a nice addition to any buffet. My guests enjoyed them. You only wish it made more. So if you like Gorgonzola double it. Enjoy.

  5. use same ingredients but use 1/2 cup CRUMBLED Gorgonzola cheese and
  6. 1 Tbsp finely chopped GLAZED walnuts. The Americanized Gorgonzola is the spicier taste and the glazed walnuts counteract that with sweetness. The perfect match. You will need to mash the Gorgonzola with the back of a spoon and stir in the nuts. The mixture will be a thick paste to spread on the celery. Spread and Chill before serving.
