This is not my first time grilling radishes. I’ve even grilled black radishes before. And golden ones too. But this is my first time serving them grilled as an appetizer. A wonderful creamy gorgonzola butter tames the heat from the radishes, which take on a slightly soft exterior but still crunchy insides. These grilled radishes with gorgonzola butter are a little different and quite good. Never would I thought that radishes would make for a great appetizer. I’m happy that I made them. Very happy.

Cheese And Radishes? Yes. Oh Yes.

You don’t want to overcook your grilled radishes with gorgonzola butter. It’s easier if you select ones that are all roughly the same size so that they all cook in about the same amount of time. You want them to still have just a bit of crunch to them. You don’t want them all soft and mushy. They don’t take long to cook. Feel free to test them as you go with a fork or a skewer.

I always use a grill basket when I make dishes like this one.

Got leftover gorgonzola butter? It’s great on burgers or grilled steaks.
