submitted by: sgjg6566@... (Julie, Michigan, USA) Hi everyone--here's another appetizer I serve on special occasions! This recipe is from "The Junior League" of Pasadena, California.

Brush bottom and side of a 9 inch springform pan with butter; sprinkle with ¼ cup breadcrumbs. Beat cream cheese and Roquefort in large mixing bowl until creamy. Add Parmesan cheese and next 3 ingredients beating until blended. Add eggs, one at a time, beating until yellow disappears. Pour mixture into prepared pan; sprinkle with remaining ¼ cup bread crumbs.

Sprinkle with chopped cilantro and parsley. Bake at 300 degrees for 1 hour and 5 minutes or until almost set. Turn oven off. Partially open oven door, and let cheesecake cool in oven for 1 hour. Let cool completely in pan on wire rack. Carefully remove sides of springform pan. Serve at room temperature, or cover and chill thoroughly. Garnish, if desired. Serve with assorted crackers.
