    Chef Jean's Note:

    I was trying to come up with something easy to serve at a cocktail party and this is what I came up with. They were a huge hit, even for people who normally don't like Gorgonzola cheese. The balsamic glaze can be made well in advance, I usually have some in the refrigerator waiting for me to use it. The yield is an estimation.

      This made for a wonderful mid morning snack. I reduced it down to just 1/4 baguette using regular bleu cheese. I also added some garlic powder to the sauce. With the minor changes, it really made wonderful 'mini-pizzas'. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

      Made for the *Best of 2008* tag game, this was great & loved the glaze! I used blue cheese + garlic (like Nimz), did not use the grill (Feb in Iceland) & used crusty rolls vs baguette. We try to eat light on Tues & Thurs nite when DH has a main-meal at noon & blue cheese was the theme as I paired this w/55 House Salad (another *Best of 2008* tag). The combo made a great meal for us. Thx for sharing this recipe w/us. *Yum* :-)
