Blue-cheese pinwheels

Yield: 36 servings

Measure Ingredient
¼ pounds Blue cheese (room temp)
½ cup Minced parsley
4 tablespoons Buter, softened
6 slices Soft white bread

In small bowl, mix blue cheese, ¼ c minced parsley, and 2 tbsp butter until well blended.

Trim crusts from bread slices; reserve bread trimmings for making crumbs another day. With rolling pin, roll bread slices flat. Evenly spread about 1 rounded tablespoonful cheese mixture on each bread slice; roll up, jelly-roll fashion.

On waxed paper, place remaining ¼ cup minced parsley. Spread outside of cheese rolls with remaining butter; coat lightly with parsley. Wrap rolls tightly in plastic wrap; refigerate at least 30 minutes for easier slicing.

To serve, slice each parsley-coated cheese roll crosswise into six slices. Place slices, cut-side up, on platter. Makes 3 dozen hors d'oeuvres.
