Warm Gorgonzola Dip & Garlic Cheese Bread
This pair of recipes was shared by Corinne Gross of Tigard, Oregon and they couldn't pair better together. She writes, "I received this recipe from a dear friend and whenever I serve this dip I’m always asked for the recipe."
1-1/4 c. whipping cream
1/4 t. garlic, minced
1/4 t. dried thyme
1/3 c. crumbled Gorgonzola cheese
Combine cream, garlic and thyme in a small saucepan; bring to a boil over medium-low heat. Add cheese and whisk until cheese melts. Reduce heat to low, stirring occasionally. Simmer gently, until it is reduced by half. Sauce will thicken as it reduces. Serve with warm Garlic Cheese Bread. Serves 6.
