3. Steak with Gorgonzola Sauce  

You can’t go wrong with a perfectly cooked steak. But you know what’ll make it even more irresistible? A generous smothering of gorgonzola sauce on top.

I know what you’re thinking: fatty steak plus cheese on top? Won’t that be overwhelmingly rich?

Absolutely not. That’s because the cheese sauce is also flavored with rosemary, garlic, and lemon juice. 

Instead of adding more richness, the sauce balances out the fattiness of the steak with its wonderful combination of tang and citrus taste.

4. Pear, Prosciutto, and Gorgonzola Pizza 

If unique pizza is what you’re craving, look no further. This pizza has a wide array of toppings and is beyond amazing.

The combination of sweet and crunchy pears, salty and smoky prosciutto, and crumbly, salty, and piquant gorgonzola is delicious.   

Plus, look how stunning this pizza is! It’s as tasty as it is beautiful.

5. Caramelized Apple Gorgonzola Pizza  

If you’re a fan of the sweet and salty flavor combo, here’s another pizza flavor you’ll surely fall in love with.

Pizza dough is topped generously with caramelized apples and creamy gorgonzola and baked to melted perfection.

Rosemary adds a layer of earthiness to the pizza, while a drizzling of honey gives it sweetness.

You’d think these elements would clash with each other, but nope! They actually work well together in creating harmonious flavors.

6. Parma Ham Canapés 

Appetizers are a great way to set the tone of your party. If you want to impress your guests, be sure these canapes are on the menu.

Think ham and cheese sandwiches, but upscale.

Instead of regular ham, you’ll use parma ham. And instead of cheddar, you’ll use gorgonzola. Stuff them in canape cases, pop them in the oven, and voila. 

7. Autumn Avocado Toast 

Avocado toast has increased in popularity over the past few years, and for good reason.

Avocados are rich, creamy, delicious, and a good source of healthy fat, too!

But instead of having the usual mashed avos on toast, how about you level it up with gorgonzola, walnuts, honey, and cinnamon?

These are simple additions that’ll make your humble toast restaurant-quality.

8. Rigatoni with Caramelized Onions and Gorgonzola

There’s pretty much no bad pasta in my book. Pasta in all shapes and sauces are always welcome in my belly.

This one, though, is in a league of its own. Rigatoni noodles are bathed in a glorious mix of creamy gorgonzola and sweet caramelized onions.

Even without a red, white, or green sauce, this pasta will surely knock your socks off!

9. Gorgonzola and Honey Bruschetta 

This appetizer of gorgonzola and honey bruschetta will impress even your snootiest party guests.

First of all, they look amazing. I’m not drooling, you’re drooling! 

It’s crunchy baguette slices topped with sharp gorgonzola and drizzled with sweet and sticky honey. Three simple ingredients = one stunning appetizer.

You can’t say no to it, even if you tried. 

10. Mini Mushroom & Gorgonzola Bites 

Here’s another appetizer recipe that’ll surely be the talk of the party.

Meaty and woodsy mushrooms are paired with sharp gorgonzola to create the perfect bite.

Bite-sized phyllo cups are used as the crispy and flaky vessel that carries the amazing filling.

The bites are finished off with a sprinkling of parsley to add a lovely pop of color.

11. Pear Gorgonzola Bites

These pear gorgonzola bites are such heavenly delights!

The balls are from a simple muffin batter that’s amped up with chunks of sweet pears and creamy gorgonzola.

These two additions provide a wonderful balance of sweet and salty, making these balls ridiculously addictive.

Don’t be surprised if you pop one ball into your mouth after another.

12. Homemade Potato Chips with Gorgonzola Cheese Sauce

Homemade chips are a lot easier to make than you think! Plus, they taste fresher and so much better than store-bought.

They’re crispy and crunchy, and delicious on their own. But we all know chips are more fun when there’s some type of dip or sauce involved.

Enter, cheese sauce.

Made with gorgonzola, mozzarella, milk, and chives, this cheese sauce is so good you’ll want to bathe in it.

13. Strawberry Salad with Gorgonzola, Walnuts, and Mint 

Make your basic salad 10 times more exciting with gorgonzola!

The addition of blue cheese crumbs to any green salad gives it so much more personality.

It’s even better when you throw in fresh strawberries, walnuts, and mint into the mix.

This salad has them all, plus a tangy vinaigrette, to boot. Don’t just imagine how delicious it is. Try it and see for yourself!

14. Bruschetta with Tomato and Basil 

This bruschetta is made of toasted garlic bread topped with tomatoes, basil, and gorgonzola.

It’s a wonderfully refreshing bite perfect for your next summer get-together.

This appetizer proves that you don’t need too many ingredients to make a sophisticated appetizer. Sometimes, the simpler, the better.

15. Potato and Zucchini Chips with Bacon, Gorgonzola, and Thyme 

If you’re looking for a healthier alternative to a bag of chips, this recipe is exactly what you need.

This is a combination of potato and zucchini chips topped with melted gorgonzola, bacon crumbles, and fresh thyme.

I’ll bet you’ll love it even more than your favorite snack!

16. Quick 30-Minute Spaghetti with Spinach and Gorgonzola 

Let’s be honest, no one else can stomach eating spinach on its own other than Popeye.

For us, non-comic strip characters, the only way to enjoy the veggie is to incorporate it with something creamy.

In this pasta dish, the spinach leaves are cooked with olive oil, butter, Parmigiano Reggiano, and gorgonzola to make a sensational sauce.

It’s so good, even the kids will ask for seconds.

17. Honey Roasted Hasselback Butternut Squash with Gorgonzola and Walnuts 

This next dish is an absolute show-stopper!

Hasselback potatoes are great, but Hasselback butternut squash is a hundred times better.

What makes it so outrageously good? Well, maybe it’s the unique way the vegetable is sliced, or maybe the fact that it’s roasted.

Or perhaps, it’s the gorgonzola, honey, toasted walnuts, and, sage drizzled on top.

Whatever it is, one thing’s for sure: this dish is one you won’t want to miss.

18. Arugula Salad with Beets, Brown Sugar Pecans, and Gorgonzola Cheese 

As someone who doesn’t delight in green salads, I can honestly say this one’s an exception.

I mean, just check out the list of ingredients.

Beets, brown sugar pecans, oranges, and gorgonzola cheese? Come on! If those elements don’t excite you, I don’t know what will.

This salad is so packed with flavor, I’m surprised it’s also nutritious.

Cooking for your SO for date night? This filet mignon with mashed potatoes on the side is guaranteed to impress.

What’s not to love? There’s perfectly flavored, melt-in-your-mouth steak on one side, and silky and creamy gorgonzola-infused mashed potatoes on the other.

It’s the best way to show your partner how much they matter to you.

20. Apricot Gorgonzola Cheese Spread 

This cheese spread combines sweet apricots with cream cheese, bacon, green onion, and gorgonzola. 

While technically a spread, I won’t mind just eating it with a spoon.

21. Gorgonzola Chicken with Mushrooms and Sage 

Chicken and mushrooms are a match made in heaven. Honestly, this classic combination is perfect as it is.

But this recipe is all about making a great dish even greater, hence, the addition of a scrumptious wine and gorgonzola sauce.

22. Warm Honey Fig Dip with Blue Cheese and Garlic Pitas 

With the combined goodness of fig, honey, mascarpone, gorgonzola, and cream cheese, this is a dip you want to eat on its own. 

You’ll be tempted to forget about the pitas, but fight the urge with all your might! They really do taste phenomenal together.

Pesto has a wonderfully complex combination of rich and creamy yet refreshing.
