Blue cheese crumble

This is so good and so easy.

It’s awesome with apple slices and crackers, and even better on steaks or burgers.

Speaking of burgers, that’s how we served it last weekend. As a bonus, hubs got to use his new toy, a charcoal chimney.

He’s been a gas grill man, but has recently been branching out to charcoal.

He dabbled with a smoker a few years ago, but smoking stuff takes for-ever (like 5-10 hours?!). We’re kind of too last-minute for that. We’d decide at maybe 2 in the afternoon to smoke something, then end up eating at around 10pm. We’d have filled up on a million chips and dips waiting around for the magical smoking to complete, and then no one was even hungry any more. ?!?

But anyway – grill your steaks or your burgers whatever way you like (I’d avoid smoking them), then spoon gobs of this blue cheese crumble all over them. You will not be sorry.

Blue Cheese Crumble

  • 4 ounces blue cheese
  • 3 T lemon juice
  • 3 T nice olive oil (I like Olive Orchard’s Sicilian for this)
  • 1/4 C finely chopped parsley (I like flat leaf parsley, but the store was out of that and the curly was just as good)
  • 1/4 C finely chopped red onion
  • pepper, to taste

Crumble the blue cheese onto a serving plate (dinner plate-sized is good). Sprinkle the lemon juice, olive oil, parsley, red onion, and pepper over evenly. Serve as an appetizer on crackers or apples, or as an accompaniment to steaks/burgers.
