GORGONZOLA BUTTER

Gorgonzola Butter in my opinion is the yummiest way to enjoy gorgonzola cheese. For those who love Blue Cheese would definitely appreciate gorgonzola, especially mixed up with fresh chives and homemade butter melted on top of your favorite cut of steak; which mind you is ridiculously easy to make! You should give a try at least once, here’s my simple step-by-step recipe, Homemade Butter. I stumbled upon this idea of butter when I had leftover king crab meat, little bit of gorgonzola, chives that needed to be used fast and I had just bought filets. So I made the Gorgonzola Butter, let that melt on top of the steak straight out of the oven and then piled the top of all that with the crab meat. I’ll just say that any time I eat king crab, I’m always going to purposely leave just enough leftovers to do this again.

Making decked out butters for all sorts of culinary purposes is really fun because there are so infinite flavors you can turn butter into, whether it’s breakfast, lunch, dinner, or dessert. I did a Tarragon Chive Butter for one of my recent recipe posts: Bison Filet With Tarragon Chive Butter. If you want to try a more milder profile, give that one a guy to start with. But feel free to throw in chopped sun-dried tomatoes, garlic, fresh grated horseradish, any of your favorite spices, whatever you love most and enjoy!
