There is nothing better than a warm summer night on the porch, good friends and an icy cold beer. And maybe a juicy steak. Okay, a juicy steak with Blue Cheese butter melting down the sides. It is truly heavenly, and on heavy rotation at my house in the summer months. The butter hits the hot steak and melts all over, creating moisture and flavor. It makes a sauce that drips all over the plate, it oozes on the vegetables that are served on the side, and soaks into the crisp skin of the baked potato. A perfect meal for a summer barbecue with family and friends.
If you should happen to have any leftover Blue Cheese butter, it is wonderful tossed into pasta with some asparagus and bread crumbs. Or slathered onto crusty Italian bread and toasted to golden brown perfection.
