Blue Cheese and Chive Butter (Cook's Illustrated)

Total Time

From Cooks Illustrated magazine, made to accompany beef tenderloin cooked in the CI method. I selected this flavored butter because the chives had just come up, harbinger of spring. It would be good on anything that you like with blue cheese.

This just explodes with flavor! I know this was designed to be served with meat, but we had it with biscuits, and it was just wonderful. I like the idea of serving it on potatoes, too. Thanks for posting!

This was really loved by all of us. We all love blue cheese. My DS even had it on his potato.
