Grape Clusters with Brie, Gorgonzola, and Honey

Scott Phillips

Servings: 4 as an appetizer

This messy-to-eat-but-totally-worth-it appetizer is a fabulous combination of sweet, salty, herby, and nutty flavors. Use scissors to cut the clusters into individual portions, and serve with plenty of napkins.


  • 6 oz. brie, rind removed, at room temperature
  • 4 oz. Gorgonzola, at room temperature
  • 1-1/2 lb. seedless grape clusters, preferably red
  • 1 Tbs. honey
  • 2 Tbs. coarsely chopped toasted walnuts
  • 1/2 tsp. finely chopped fresh rosemary

  • Position a rack in the center of the oven and heat the oven to 400°F.
  • Mash the cheeses together in a small bowl; there should still be clumps of Gorgonzola visible. Put the grapes on a foil-lined rimmed baking sheet, and using your fingers, put dollops of the cheese mixture on the grapes, spreading the grapes apart in places to get cheese inside and underneath.
  • Bake until the cheese is almost melted but still clinging to the grapes, 4 to 5 minutes. Transfer to a serving plate or cheese board. Drizzle with the honey, sprinkle with the walnuts and rosemary, and serve.

    Why wouldn't you just remove the stems and plop the stuff onto some bread or cracker?

    Really yummy, but not for everyone. Gorgonzola isn't everyone's favorite, but for those who like it this is a big hit!

    An easy and tasty appetizer. I read the reviews but left the grapes in clusters on the stems and we didn't find it hard to eat or too messy. A little hand wash before dinner is all you need!

    Great taste and was a huge hit. Next time we will take grapes off the stems and may try "cooking" grapes slightly before putting cheese on them and then melting it. A definite keeper.
