Gorgonzola Canapes

Standard
I thought these were a bit salty on their own so I topped them with strawberry jam.  My mother loved them as is.
  • 6 ounces gorgonzola, crumbled
  • 1/4 lb butter, softened
  • 1/2 teaspoon celery salt
  • 1/3 cup pecans, finely chopped
  • paprika
  • rye bread, toasted on one side and cut into 4 dozen cut outs, or use pumpernickel party bread.
  1. Combine cheese, butter, celery salt, and pecans.
  2. Spread mixture on untoasted side of bread cut outs.
  3. Sprinkle with paprika and broil until bubbly.
