Wisconsin Cheese Holiday Pairing No. 4


by Wisconsin Cheese

Small bites are the perfect start to any holiday gathering and Wisconsin Gorgonzola can be the star of the show with these Bacon Polenta Bites and Red Pepper Chutney Toasts.

Serving Tips:

  1. Make a veggie version of the Bacon Polenta Bites by substituting sautéed greens, such as kale, for the bacon.
  2. If you can’t find Wisconsin Gorgonzola, a milder Wisconsin Blue cheese is a great alternative. Wisconsin Cheddar-Blues would be a tasty choice for palates a bit timid of blue-veined cheeses.
  3. Make sure you make enough bites for all of your guests to try each once at least once, or have extra ingredients on hand for quick assembly and distribution.
  4. A strong libation pairs nicely against these bold bites and the full-flavored Gorgonzola – try a spicy syrah, dark stout or fruity zinfandel.
