A Quartet of English and French Cheese Flavoured Butters

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by French Tart

A selection of my four favourite "cheesy" flavoured butters..... Cheddar & Garlic Butter, Camembert Butter, Roquefort Butter and Stilton & Green Peppercorn Butter. These can be prepared well ahead of time and stored in the fridge or the freezer. I then cut off rounds or slices, as and when I need them. My favourite uses for these wonderful cheese butters are as toppings for steaks, grilled fish and vegetables. They are also wonderful spread and melted on ciabatta, a baguette or good artisinal bread - a meal in themselves!! I have also popped a slice or two into pasta dishes or white and any savoury sauces, for that extra cheesy zing!

Confession: I made a trio--without the Stilton and green peppercorn...the Stilton I had--ran off with the butcher last weekl.LOL and I could find a replacement... However, the rest were TDF, FT!!!! Served them on crackers and Green Peppers--go figure, but delicious--with some wine (you woulda killed me if not. LOL) will use the left-overs on veggies and toasties this week... EXCELLENT!
