Thursday Thirteen - 8th Edition

Thirteen Ways I Love Blue Cheese

1. On a salad. Any salad.

2. Filet Mignon with blue cheese sauce . . . yuuummmm

3. I love a homemade pizza with basil or sun dried tomato pesto mixed with red sauce, mozzarella, pepperoni and then the blue cheese; baked until the cheese starts to turn a little brown.

4. There is a divine recipe for Blue Cheese Potato Salad that I could eat for breakfast, lunch and dinner (I reduce the amount of oil). It's also great if you saute the potatoes with sweet onions in olive oil (or bacon grease: )and serve warm. It's even better the next day warmed up again.

5. A burger with both creamy and crumbled blue cheese and crisp bacon on top is to die for.

6. Blue Cheese Burgers where the goodness in mixed inside is equally delightful.

7. I add blue cheese to this Cheesy Potato recipe, even though it's not called for. I don't put the chips on top though.

8. I add it to Buffalo Chicken Dip. I also add more hot sauce.

9. Grilled Pesto Marinated Flank Steak with Blue Cheese Fondue. I made this for a party once using filet instead of flank steak and it was decadent.

Less refined ways I've been know to eat blue cheese . .

10. With a spoon right out of the container

11. Sometimes I put the entire container in the microwave and use it as a dip for whatever chips I have on hand.

12. Melted over Nacho Cheese Doritos. Man, did that make the entire house stink! I had to put a candle in the microwave.

13. Rolled in a slice of pepperoni with a Frito on top.

Wow- I've never thought of that many uses with bleu cheese! I'll have to try it on some of your suggestions!
I'm hungry now :OP!
Have great week!

Some of those sound really delicious.

I can't believe you've never melted it on a vegetable--I mean a real vegetable, not a potato--I mean are you a cheese head or what?

I honestly am not sure how blue cheese tastes. I think I've tried only a blue cheese salad dressing once. I may have liked that. I should try again. Your list got me interested. :)

Nice TT :)


The last one is particularly original. :-)

Does an olive count as a vegetable? I admittedly have a problem with eating enough of them. Vegetables, not olives. I'm going to try it: )

Well they all look good, but #1....yum!

I mix it with greek yogurt, add some celery seeds and have a blue cheese dressing I can eat ALMOST guilt free!

It's always great to find another bleu cheese lover! Sometimes I crave it!!!

You are one of the only people I have ever met who actually likes bleu cheese. :)

Jenny said...

I totally heart blue cheese!

I saved the blue cheese potato salad to my recipe box...yum!

I agree, there's nothing better than blue cheese on top of steak!
And combine it with bacon on a burger...heaven!
