Blue cheese substitute?

Making a pork loin with cranberries and blue cheese is listed in the ingredients. What other cheeses can I substitute for blue since it's not one of my favorites? Thanks and hope everyone had a great holiday.

There really is no substitution for blue cheese. You could possibly leave it out altogether, but subbing another cheese probably would not work. To give us a better idea though, post the recipe and we will be better suited to give you some suggestions.

It depends where you are and whats available to you.

I'm in England and I would use a Lancashire or Cheshire, as they are quite crumbly and fairly strong without being as an acquired taste as blue.

I think feta is a good replacement for the blue cheese.

Goat cheese might work too.

Hello and welcome to DC. I am afraid that there is no subsitute for Blue Cheese. Why not make something else that doesn't have Blue Cheese in it.

Have a great New Year.

Bleu cheese is a little hard to handle in some instances (like snacking) ... but it really mellows and blends to add a new flavor profile in some recipes when it is cooked - adding just that little "something" to make a dish special.

I don't necessarily like cilantro on it's own or when over used - but there are dishes that use it that don't taste right without it when the flavors all meld together.

I agree - there is no real substitute .... but if you're not willing to give the recipe a try with it ... the best would be a good strong Feta.
