Blue Cheese Butter
Recipe by Brandon McDearis
This simple blue cheese butter is a great accompaniment to many meals. It is classically melted over steak, but it is also a great topper to other proteins, such as chicken, fish and pork. It can even be a delicious addition when mixed in with vegetables or added to soups and stews.
- ½ cup butter, softened
- ½ cup blue cheese (or gorgonzola), crumbled
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 tablespoon chopped parsley (optional)
- pinch of salt and pepper
- Combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix together until thoroughly incorporated. This can be done with an electric mixer at low speed.
- Scoops of the butter can be served as is, but you can also scoop tablespoons of the butter onto a greased/sprayed sheet pan or plate and put the pan/plate in the freezer. Once frozen, place the frozen tablespoons of butter into a storage container for future use and keep frozen until serving.
