Wonderful (and EASY) appetizer

Wanted to share this delicious appetizer I made for several parties this holiday season. 
It's super yummy and can easily be prepared low-cal.


1 15-oz. carton whole milk ricotta cheese (Jinny used reduced fat...)
6 oz. Gorgonzola cheese, crumbled
1/2 tsp. snipped fresh thyme or 1/4 tsp. dried thyme, crushed
1/4 tsp. snipped fresh rosemary or 1/8 tsp. dried rosemary, crushed
1 Tbsp. honey
36 toasted baguette slices (Jinny used both white and whole grain baguette - prefered the whole grain!)

Sliced apples, more fresh thyme, and/or toasted walnuts - set aside
Honey - set aside


1. Place ricotta in a large mixing bowl. Beat with an electric mixer on medium speed for 2 minutes. Stir in Gorgonzola, 1/2 teaspoon thyme, and 1/4 teaspoon rosemary until combined. Fold in 1 tablespoon honey until just combined. Spoon mixture into a serving bowl. Cover and chill 1 to 24 hours. Makes 36 appetizer servings.

2. To serve, spread on baguette slices and top with apple slices, thyme, and/or walnuts. Drizzle with honey.
