Blue Cheese Butter
Blue cheese salad dressing has always been my favorite salad dressing. It is the only salad dressing I use at salad bars and restaurants.
Ed on the other hand, won’t touch the stuff. He ‘thinks” that he doesn’t like blue cheese.
I make Cobb salad often and use blue cheese. Ed eats them and never says a word….that is/was, until I told him that I blue cheese in the salad. He said he would prefer I not use it.
Normally, I just use a little butter on the steaks, but, after having dinner at my friend Nikola’s house, where I enjoyed a steak with crumbled blue cheese, I had an idea.
Several months ago, while playing around with steak in my air fryer (which I have perfected by the way), I decided to make a topping with butter and blue cheese.
Ed loves a touch of butter on his steaks, so adding blue cheese might just be the best of both worlds.
Well folks, we BOTH have been enjoying our rib eye steaks with my Blue Cheese Butter Topping and Ed is a convert. He loves my Air Fryer Rib Eye Steak with this Blue Cheese Butter. Gotcha!

Those who follow a low carb or keto diet, will appreciate this Savory Fat Bomb.
Tips and Tricks
- Allow butter to soften on the counter.
- Buy a block of blue cheese and crumble the amount needed. Packaged crumbled blue cheese is more expensive and generally not as good quality as a solid brick.
- If you don’t mind greasy hands, with clean hands, squish the butter and blue cheese together. It’s a bit faster than using a fork.
For another flavor profile, try adding in freshly cut herbs like parsley or thyme. Freshly ground pepper is nice to add too.
These cute little egg bite molds are perfect for making perfectly shaped compound butter.
The molds are the smaller size, not the ones used for Sous Vide or Pressure Cooker (Starbucks) Bacon and Jarlsberg Egg Bites or Pressure Cooker Mini Mushroom Quiche Bites.
You can see the size difference in my Pressure Cooker Cherry Cordial Cheesecake Bites recipe.
The Blue Cheese Butter is ready to serve now, or freeze it for another day.
Alternatively, the mixture can be rolled into a log and sealed tightly with plastic wrap.
The Blue Cheese Butter will melt on the hot steak.
Each bite is enough for two steaks!
