Blue cheese lovers

Post by rick o'shea » Sun Jul 13, 2014 11:33 am

I go through phases where i can't get enough of it! Usually with bacon, rocket and balsamic on rye, but currently it has to be with a poached egg (runny yolk) on a white bun.

Anyone got any good recipes using it?
Funnily enough the Khmers I've asked to try it are quite disgusted by it! Go figure.

I use it to make a tasty macaroni cheese.

Makes 4 good portions in 30 mins for about $5 depending on cheesiness

1 lrg onion
1 lrg leek
half a garlic

chop all very fine and fry VERY GENTLY until translucent - you want no colour

In a saucepan gently melt 50g of butter and add a heaped dessertspoonful of flour. Mix to a thick paste and continually stir.
Heat VERY gently to cook the flour but stop as soon as it starts to gain any colour as this will make the sauce look 'muddy'
Slowly add about half a litre milk over 5 mins continually stirring and raising to a gentle boil to make a thick sauce with no lumps
Add the BLUE CHEESE - 100-200g depending on taste and budget :)

Cook 250g of macaroni and mix with sauce and veg

Season with (white if possible) pepper and salt if needed

The local Khmer dish (pork-stuffed tomatoes) is very good with blue cheese added after the steaming.

Your recipe sounds scrumptious, Indigo!

As for me, just blue cheese on a baguette toast under the broiler or in a salad.

If you have an oven, Rick, there's something I liked to make back in France. In a cup or mug (that can go in the oven), drop a spoonful of thick cream, minced onion, ham or smoked bacon, a whole egg, then cover with cheese of your choice and hop it in the oven until the egg is cooked to your liking. Season with salt, pepper, soy sauce or anything that you fancy and dip toasted pieces of bread in the mug.

Something soft (Gorgonzola, Cambezola, or Castello) with roasted garlic on small baguette slices toasted in olive oil. * this appetizer requires a big-assed red to cut through all the fat.

How much are raspberries, OD?

And can you repel Cambodian guests by offering them blue cheese? Is it like fragrant Barang prahoc to them?

Simply Stilton or another good blue cheese and a nice 'fresh' bottle of port.

Here? Outrageously expensive and bad about 12 hours from when you buy them. I don't really eat it much here because of that... though one of my Khmer friends in PP has a raspberry bush fruiting this year, I'm going to see about getting a starter off of him and growing my own... that may change things a bit.
