Picked up a 4 lb wheel of Maytag at RD yesterday. Any great blue cheese uses? how about a good salad dressing reciepe to share?
I like to make burgers with the Blue tucked inside so I don't loose a drop of that tangy goodness. I also add some to a BLT.MMMMmmm.
dude, mouth watering...and it's almost lunchtime!
i went through a phase i kinda refused to each chicken breasts, and they only way i ate them was with a blue cheese sauce.
nothing complicated, some type of sofrito, maybe just sauteed shallots and garlic (or roasted garlic), heavy cream, blue cheese nutmeg and season to taste. and frankly, i like leaving it a little 'chunky'. those semi-melted pieces of cheese are awesome
and i totally second the burgers.
Try it with some pear granita. Fabulous.
I love blue cheese. One of my favorites, very simple if you get the honey: take a piece of blue cheese, mash it up with a fork, maybe add a bit of cream to thin it out if you want, fold in very fine diced ripe pear cubes. Spread on freshly toasted baguette and drizzle with truffle-honey. I love this as a little snack while guests are coming in. It only gets better with a glas of Sauternes, but what doesn't? ;)
Blue cheese demands nuts! Nuts and blue are just too good to separate. Some Texas Pecans and blue cheese on any old green, some olive oil and lemon...I'll eat myself stupid.
Maytag is my favorite!!!
I have a crazy beet and maytag timbale recipe I can share later. Basically a modern take on the beet and cheese salad. Awesome!
I have some of that in my fridge.
sour cream and butter milk ,green onion ,tarragon, a bit of mayo and garlic very little.
vinegar and olive oil s&p.
Use tarragon vinegar. :)
