Recipe for butter infused blue cheeese.

This combined recipe is very simple, but does need some elapsed time to bring it to perfection.

Take 1 pound of unsalted butter, and one pound of your favorite blue cheese, Maytag Blue,Roqueforte,or Stilton perhaps.

Cut the butter into 1/4 to 1/3 inch slices and cut the blue cheese the same way.

Interleave the slices, butter-cheese-butter-cheese until all two pounds are combined.

Blue cheese butter infusion

Wrap tightly in wax paper, and leave in the refrigerator for at least a week, up to one month.

At this time, separate the butter and the blue cheese and recombine into separate 1 lb loaves. It will be a bit messy, but don't worry about it.

The blue cheese will have a lovely softened, buttery mildness.

The butter will have a tangy, salty, nutty edge - perfect for sauteeing mushrooms for steak!
