MMM, love them all, stilton, gorgonzola, roquefort, blue brie, blacksticks blue. I use all of them in a similar way to Margi.

However, I am making one of my favourite Delia Smith recipes this week, Spinach and Ricotta lasagne with pine nuts, its very indulgent and absolutely wonderful.

Nice wedge of Iceberg Lettuce, Grape Tomatoes, Cracked Black Pepper, crumbles, and red wine vinaigrette, classic wedge salad.

Pizza of thin sliced, paper thin pear, caramelized onion, and blue cheese is nothing short of magical.

Pizza with garlic butter base, mozz, fontina, ricotta, and crumbles is a GREAT quatro formagio.

Blue Cheese stuffed figs, with a little balsamic reduction.

When doing potatoes au gratin, a little blue crumbles makes for a nice, sharp salty addition, without being too over powering.

A BLT, with homemade Blue Cheese spread is awesome, imo.

Classic fondue, using the blue to finish, enough just for a sharp bite, but not over powering, great with bread, veggies, fruit, and meat.
Ooooooooooh! Tatt! Great ideas! I'm drooling.


If you can't see the bright side of life, polish the dull side.

When growing up in northern MN, one of our favorites was to make blue cheese dressing and use it as a dip for french fries...or fried green beans...ah...memories.

I love blue cheese on a burger, either crumbled with some mayo, or a nice blue cheese dressing/spread.

I love a little of it in Mac & Cheese. It's also good on a "white pizza" along with caramelized onions, walnuts, and arugula.

I did a velute sauce with Saga and Gorganzola to go with my Mushroom and Onion Manacotti.
Just because someone tells you that you can't do something doesn't mean you have to listen.

What do you do with it?
One of my favorite pairings with blue cheese is Beets.
Beets (or apples or pears), blue cheese, thinly-sliced red onion & walnuts, over spinach or mixed salad greens. If I have garbanzo beans, I add that to the salad, as well.

Blue cheese, buttermilk, butter & chive mashed potatoes.

Blue cheese & bacon pair well - in a salad, stuffed pork chops, or stuffed chicken breasts. Alternately, a pat of blue cheese compound butter for stuffing pork chops or chicken breasts.

Grilled halved peaches filled with blue cheese.

I have a recipe for blue cheese potato pancakes with a walnut crust, I had forgotten about. Might have to give that a go.

Buffalo chicken wings with celery sticks & blue cheese dressing.
