Nicole I watched that RR show last night as well. Guess what I made for dinner
There are many many different types of blue cheese. Some are more potent than others, but they are all pretty strong (IMO).
I like blue cheese, but I cant' eat it straight. My wife could just eat chunks of it on its own. When I made this dish last night I used a whole stick of butter. I am not sure, but I think RR used less than that. I also just put a small amount of my steak so it was not too overpowering. If you still have any of the compound butter left, try adding more regular butter to cut the taste. Start with a half stick and just let it (and the compound butter) get soft and then mix it together to incorporate.
What did you think of the tomatoes?
