We’re kicking off the new year with some easy canapé recipes for our DRY January Pairing Party and these Gorgonzola, Grape and Honey Canapés are one of our favorites! We’re also sharing a Rosemary Pineapple Mozzarella Canapé recipe, a Smoked Salmon & Cream Cheese Canapé recipe, and a Blueberry-Ricotta Tartlet Canapé recipe that pair perfectly with our handpicked zero-proof cocktails from our pairing party or are just as delicious to serve on their own.

Gorgonzola, Grape and Honey Canapés
The Secret to Serving This Recipe
The secret to serving this Gorgonzola, Grape and Honey Canapé recipe is how you crumble the cheese. You can either mash the cheese with the tines of a fork to break it up into crumbs, or you can break off large pieces of cheese from the main wedge and rub it between your fingers to crumble. Alternatively, for a mess-free way, break off chunks and crumble them inside a plastic bag with your fingers. Then, you can store any extra cheese in the same bag.
How to Serve Gorgonzola, Grape and Honey Canapés
While any traditional serving platter works perfectly to serve these canapés, we love serving them on tiered dessert stands to add visual interest to the overall food display. The stands can feature this recipe alone or several you may be preparing. They can be incorporated into your tablescape design or arranged on a self-service station.
The Perfect Pairing
There’s no doubt, these Gorgonzola, Grape and Honey Canapés taste great on their own, but they also pair perfectly with DRY Botanical Bubbly’s Sour Apple Spritz Recipe. The sour flavors provided by the Sour Apple Spritz are complemented by a rich and creamy, slightly tart and sweet flavor of the canapés.

What You’ll Need
To create this simple recipe, you’ll need the following:
How to Prepare
Preheat oven to 450°F and slice the baguette into 1/2 inch slices. Bake the slices for about 3 minutes until they are golden brown. Crumble the Gorgonzola cheese, if needed, and divide between the baguettes. Return the baguettes to the oven for another three minutes until the cheese is slightly melted. Meanwhile, slice the grapes and divide evenly between the baguettes once the cheese is slightly melted. Drizzle honey over each baguette and serve. To make it extra delicious and special, you may use tupelo honey.
