We had this for our supper club gathering and it was a HIT! I will make it again, but maybe with a little less garlic. We sliced the apples thinly and served on top of the cheese...so good!!
Bruschetta Gorgonzola and Apples
Becky Luigart-Stayner; Melanie J. Clarke and Lydia DeGaris-Pursell
For this classic Italian appetizer, I chose Gorgonzola for its sweet creaminess, but any quality blue cheese will do. A slice of tart apple is a nice foil to the garlic and cheese.
Yield: 12 servings (serving size: 1 bruschetta and 2 apple wedges)
