Blue Cheese Butter

This decadent flavored butter recipe is outstanding; the flavors complement one another beautifully. It's terrific to top off steak. Next, I'm going to try using it in hamburger meat for a cookout.

Blue Cheese Butter
1 shallot, minced
1 garlic clove, minced
Olive oil
1/2 cup butter, softened
Zest and juice of 1/2 lemon
4 oz. blue cheese, crumbled
Pepper to taste
1 tsp. chopped fresh parsley (optional)

1. Sauté shallot and garlic in hot oil until softened. Stir shallot mixture in softened butter; stir in lemon zest and juice. Stir in blue cheese, pepper, and, if desired, parsley. Spoon mixture into a piece of wax paper; roll butter mixture into a log, and refrigerate for 30 minutes before serving.
