Definitely 5 Star. Gotta like bleu cheese though. Much better at room temp than cold. Although, if you get the munchies late at night, this is terrific spread on the end piece of plain white homemade bread. Even cold. With a glass of sauvignon blanc. Mmmm. Many thanks for posting. UPDATE: 2/9/09. Soften 4 oz. of goat cheese and add all the other ingredients for a creamier spread with essentially the same flavors. The goat cheese does cut the strong bleu cheese taste though, without changing the basic flavor. Take it out of the fridge an hour before if you want it spreadable. That may or may not be what you're looking for! Very good!
This recipe is a WINNER!! I made exactly "as is", use a good Danish Blue and everyone raved! Super quick to throw together ahead of time and left it in the fridge until 2 hrs before the party. It's screams for a good glass of red wine. I would recommend this to any blue cheese lover!
If you love blue cheese and blue cheese dips this is the best. With the Christmas season on top of us this will be the star or the dips. Thanks for this wonderful recipe!
Wow! If you like blue cheese, you'll like this. I made it for a family potluck and served it with water crackers as suggested. There wasn't much left and the lucky ones spread it over their steaks. It's an odd combination but it works!
I am a blue cheese lover and this was just a wonderful combination of flavors, predominantly blue cheese. If you don't care for it, you will hate this. DH doesn't care for it, but I knew that before I made it so he doesn't count. Everything went so well together. Served on social crackers as a snack. Thanks Kathy for all the wonderful work you do here.
Very interesting flavor served on a plain soda cracker. I chopped the onion quite fine so it had a smoother consistency. Served as my Thanksgiving appetizer Thanks Kathy for all you do and posting neat recipes
I served this as the appetizer at a family dinner and everyone loved it. My dad and brother even thought it would be tasty on top of a steak. I will definitely make this again...I love blue cheese!
Tasty! I took it to a Christmas gathering and everyone pronounced it wonderful -- well, everyone except the blue cheese haters, but who cares what they think! The hostess pointed out that the dip really does need to be served on water crackers because the dip has such a strong taste that you don't want any other flavors competing with it. I agree, so in the future I'll remember to resist the temptation to substitute a different kind of cracker.
I have had this recipe saved for the longest time... dying to try it with a glass of red wine and I finally go to enjoy this fantastic dip! I only got to let mine stand for about an hour, (Hey.. I was hungry!) but it was absolutely fantastic over peppered water crackers. Thank you!!
Really good & easy. I mnade it for company and the blue-cheese lovers raved about it. It also looks very nice.
