Blue cheese spread are one of those types of items that just makes getting through the fall/winter holiday entertaining season a cinch. It tastes perfect when paired with seasonal crackers, fruit breads, fresh fruits and nuts. Plus, it may be used to whip up delicious appetizers every time friends and family decide to stop on by. Here are a few ideas:
Hot Blue Cheese Spread Biscuits
If you’ve got a can of pop-and-bake biscuits on hand, have we got an appetizer for you! Simply place the biscuits single file, inside of a non-stick casserole dish. The dish, by the way, should be just big enough to hold all of the biscuits tightly together. Then cover the tops of the biscuits with a thick layer of blue cheese spread. When you’re done, bake the biscuits in the oven until they’re cooked through. Afterward, serve them hot alongside one of your favorite beverages.
Bacon – Blue Cheese Spread Bites
For those moments when “ultra fancy” is the theme of the day, grab the ready-to-bake, mini phyllo dough cups. Fill them with the blue cheese spread, bacon bits, chopped nuts and diced scallions. Then pop them into the oven. Once the cups are brown, remove them from the oven and set them onto a pretty platter before the guests arrive. See, it really is that easy to put on a first class spread in minutes!
Blue Cheese Spread Stuffed Veggies
Blue cheese spread is also super convenient to have around if you love stuffed veggies. For example, you could stuff tomatoes with blue cheese and canned tuna, crab or chicken. The same ingredients could be used to stuff mushroom caps, green peppers, jalapeños, artichokes, avocados, roasted onions and zucchini boats. Yum!
Blue Cheese Spread Sliders
Lastly, you could always use blue cheese spread to top off a platter of sliders. To make it even more appealing, use a variety of meats for your sliders. Ones that would pair well with the tasty spread are beef, lamb, pork, duck confit, grilled chicken and salmon.
