Moxie's Mozzarella & Gorgonzola Rolls

“I am honored to have adopted this recipe from Moxie. Here is her original description: This is one of my favorite party appetizers. Serve it on a plate with marinated cherry tomatoes in the center. The 2 hour cook time is really the time it takes to chill before slicing.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Put a piece of plastic wrap on a flat counter.
  2. Cut mozzarella into 1/4-inch-thick slices and arrange in rows on the plastic wrap, overlapping by 1 inch.
  3. Place another sheet of plastic wrap on top, and with a rolling pin, carefully flatten the cheese into a sheet about 1/4-inch thick (you're shooting for a rectangle about 10x13 inches).
  4. Take the top sheet of plastic off, and spread the mascarpone cheese over mozzarella.
  5. Crumble Gorgonzola on top and sprinkle the basil on top.
  6. Using the plastic wrap to help you lift the cheese, carefully roll the cheese into a log.
  7. Wrap tightly in plastic wrap.
  8. Refrigerate log at least 2 hours.
  9. To serve, cut into slices about 3/4 inch thick.
