"A huge success! This cheese ball featuring the sharp flavors of Gorgonzola and white wine is very popular with my Italian family. You can substitute chopped parsley or mixed herbs for the paprika."

1 (8 ounce) package
cream cheese, softened
crumbled Gorgonzola cheese
shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
chopped pistachio nuts
I thought this appetizer was simple and extremely tasty. I decided to double the gorgonzola (and leave out the cheddar and paprika)...I thought the level of blue cheese taste was just right (not overpowering). I served this with slices of toasted baguette, and with slices of pears (soaked in lemon juice to prevent browning). I was able to make everything hours in advance, and everyone loved it. Thanks Sandra.
This recipe is good, but nothing fantastic. I used more gorgonzola cheese as recommended and was glad I did, but still the cheeseball lacked something. I used pecans rather than pistachios and that worked out well and are easier to find already chopped at the store. Overall good, but would not make it again.
It was a big hit!! Half the people at the party requested the recipe.
This recipe was devoured at a recent Christmas party. It has been requested that I make this for every family get-together from now on. I had a bottle of Reisling on hand, so that's what I used for the white wine. Delicious!! Even those who weren't crazy about bleu cheese loved it.
Not bad. Everyone seemed to like it, at our family christmas get together. I think next time, I will add more gongorzola cheese and a dash more wine.
Rolled it in crushed almonds and pistachios.
I added twice the amount of bleu cheese to the recipe and it turned out fantastic. The presentation is very pretty and looks like a lot of time went into it.
We enjoyed this very much. My company loved it!!! Perfect blend of cheeses. Will be making this one again!
I changed it a bit - I added dried cranberries, pecans and a splash of lemon juice - I put it in a small crock and let it sit in the fridge for about 5 hours then served - it was delicious!
