Nope, not a Minnesota Vikings fan, not even from the Midwest. This recipe was translated from a Norweigian magazine and is the creation of the Hotel Viking in Oslo, Norway. The cheese pairs very well with grapes. The butter enhances the blue cheese flavor.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 12 lb blue cheese, crumbles (Salem Blue is a good brand)
  • 12 lb butter, softened
  • 12 cup almonds, minced


  1. Knead together equal quantities of blue cheese and butter along with the minced almonds. Can use a food processor.
  2. Form into a ball, chill, and serve with whole wheat crackers.

I love cheese balls, but I never made one with blue cheese. I like the mix of amonds and blue cheese.
