Moxie's Mozzarella & Gorgonzola Rolls

Total Time
2hrs 30mins
Prep 30 mins
Cook 2 hrs

I am honored to have adopted this recipe from Moxie. Here is her original description: This is one of my favorite party appetizers. Serve it on a plate with marinated cherry tomatoes in the center. The 2 hour cook time is really the time it takes to chill before slicing.


  1. Put a piece of plastic wrap on a flat counter.
  2. Cut mozzarella into 1/4-inch-thick slices and arrange in rows on the plastic wrap, overlapping by 1 inch.
  3. Place another sheet of plastic wrap on top, and with a rolling pin, carefully flatten the cheese into a sheet about 1/4-inch thick (you're shooting for a rectangle about 10x13 inches).
  4. Take the top sheet of plastic off, and spread the mascarpone cheese over mozzarella.
  5. Crumble Gorgonzola on top and sprinkle the basil on top.
  6. Using the plastic wrap to help you lift the cheese, carefully roll the cheese into a log.
  7. Wrap tightly in plastic wrap.
  8. Refrigerate log at least 2 hours.
  9. To serve, cut into slices about 3/4 inch thick.

Ah, synastry. I found the cheeses I needed the day after you won the football pool! This was delicious, moxie. I also found some proscuitto ham and added a layer of that when I rolled the cheeses up. We really enjoyed this, thanks for posting!

I could not get the nice mozzarella sheet. Perhaps slice deli cheese would have worked better. A waste of expensive ingredients.

So rich and delicious! The ingredients are expensive if you're on a budget, but these are very much worth it! I also added proscuitto, and doubled the recipe for a dinner party I'm attending this evening. I halfed the amount of mascarpone because it just seemed a little too rich to use all of it, but they came out wonderfully, displayed on a serving tray with a decoratively cut orange. Hope they're a big hit tonight...the boyfriend and I certainly loved them!
