This Chive Gorgonzola Cheese Spread is an easy-to-make appetizer that everyone loves.
Necessity is the mother of invention.Plato
Several weeks ago, our neighbors stopped by for cocktails before we all went to dinner. It struck me mid-afternoon that I didn’t have anything to nibble while we sipped. Before I jumped in the car to head to the store, I decided to shop my fridge first, and BINGO!
A tub of whipped cream cheese in the refrigerator was purchased for bagels several weeks prior. I had a partial log of goat cheese and two partial containers of gorgonzola crumbles in the freezer. I was hoping for a larger variety of cheeses, as well as some harder cheeses so that I could whip up some Fromage Fort, but alas!
And actually, my dearth of cheeses was quite fortuitous. While I love Fromage Fort, I was forced to figure out something to do with what I had, and thus, this Chive Gorgonzola Cheese Spread was born.
Earthy gorgonzola and tangy goat cheese combine with mild, onion-y chives for this delicious spread.
After we enjoyed it so much with our neighbors and then polished off the rest during the week, I made it again to take with us for our Family Gathering last week. And suffice it to say, it was QUICKLY devoured!
And not for nothing, it’s a great way to use up some of those chives from your garden!
- 8 ounces cream cheese
- 5 ounces goat cheese
- 3 ounces gorgonzola cheese, crumbled or brick
- 2 tablespoons chopped chives
- Combine the three cheeses in a food processor and blend until smooth.
- Add the chives and pulse a few times, just to mix them in You don't want to over-process the chives.

The ones in blue are very quick and easy to make:

- Dump some olives and large caperberries on a baking sheet, sprinkle some garlic, herbs, and oil and BAM…you have a Roasted Olives Appetizer worthy of any gathering.
- While hummus takes a little longer preparation time, you can make a BIG BATCH and freeze it! It defrosts perfectly.
- It doesn’t get much easier than Toasted Rosemary Walnuts.
- This Jalapeño Cheese Spread is barely more time intensive than these others, but only because you need to grate cheese and chop jalapeños.
