What to do with too much Gorgonzola?
I had a recipe that called for a little bit of gorgonzola, and my SO went out and bought a pound of the stuff. Now we have way more than we need and I'm looking for ideas...
It's the creamy, Italian kind (not the kind you can crumble), and there's only me and my SO here to eat it. I really don't want to throw it out so if you have any ideas or receipes that use a lot of this cheese please let me know!
PS - She's a pescetarian so any application sans land-meat would be doubly appreceiated. Having said that, I do eat everything so all ideas are welcome.
- stir into polenta
- salad dressing (pairs beautifully with arugula, beets & walnuts)
- pasta sauce
- spread on crostini and top with sliced pears
- ice cream!
- sweet tart with cranberries or figs or pears
- savory tart with caramelized onions & walnuts
This is called gorgozola dolce and it's one of my favorites. Mmmm. The first time I bought it was at DiPalo's in NYC a couple of years ago. I bought some of their butternut squash ravioli also and made gorgonzola cream sauce for it for our New Year's dinner. Rich and/but soooo good.
A complex, aged dessert wine (e.g., vintage port) with nuts, figs, and gorgonzola.
Polenta with butter, parmigiano reggiano, and gorgonzola. Made well, this can be extraordinary.
