Blue Cheese Butter

Something different we tried! Blue cheese butter on BBQ steaks. Wife and I got our blue cheese (or 'aurajuusto') obsession from our time in Finland.

The butter was pretty simple to make:

  • 100g softened butter,
  • 100g blue cheese,
  • two crushed cloves of garlic,
  • two teaspoons of chopped sage leaves.

Mash the ingredients all together and then form into a log on some grease-proof paper. Wrap the ends and put it back into the fridge to firm up.

Cook the steaks on the barbie as per normal (just some salt & pepper seasoning), and then put a couple of knobs of the butter on the steaks as soon as they come off the barbie.

Simple & delicious.
