Olive oil
1 package (3 ounces) Wisconsin cream cheese
1/3 cup (1 ounce) grated Wisconsin parmesan cheese
1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
1 15-ounce can cannellini or other white beans, drained and crushed
1 1/2 cups (about 8 ounces) Wisconsin gorgonzola cheese
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil
Peanut or olive oil

Cooking Directions:

Brush eggplant slices with olive oil; set aside.

Whip cream cheese until smooth; add parmesan and garlic, blending well. Fold in crushed white beans; stir to combine. Gently stir gorgonzola. Blend gorgonzola, parsley and basil into cream cheese mixture; set aside.

In a large skillet, brown eggplant slices in a small amount of peanut or olive oil.
