Gorgonzola and Steak

Just for you, Pam. I'm sorry I can't tell you what dairy this came from because hubby threw out the wrapper before I could write down the name. But I did get some nice photos of the cheese itself, so thought I would share them with you. This cheese is Gorgonzola Dolce, which is a Northern Italian cheese. A young blue as opposed to the regular, aged Gorgonzola. It was rather creamy of texture with not so pungent of an aroma as the usual blue we get, which is most always Maytag.
I think you would like this one, my friend. I put it on my steak and on my baked potato and it was truly yummy. Here's the pics.

What a pretty cheese. I really liked this one.

After the melting:

Can't you just smell it??? That was a super supper. Too bad I only got a little bit. There was just enough for both of us to have some on our steak and tater and then it was all gone. Boohoo... will be getting more of this stuff. Really terrific. I recommend this type cheese to anyone who likes blue cheese. I think even the casual eater of blue cheese would love this one. For one thing, it isn't quite as over-powering as the more aged varieties. Those with a sensitive nose will appreciate this one. It was well worth the cost.

I love gorgonzola paired with steak. And it's only 7:30 here and you've made me so hungry!

OMG- that looks so wonderful!!!
I made a steak salad the other day in response to my taste buds craving this dish. Oh, shut up, stomach- it's 9 o'clock in the morning! :D

This was just not nice. And at lunch time with no steak in my house. I have eaten steak with blue cheese butter but this looks so much better...all cheese. Oh well back to my salad.
