Blue Cheese and Chive Compound Butter

Using a compound butter is one of the easiest ways to pump up the flavor of a ho-hum dish. In this version, we take unsalted butter and mix in blue cheese, chives, salt, and pepper. Form it into a log and stick it in the fridge. Stir a little into steamed green beans or zucchini, or bring it along on car-camping trips to put on coal-baked potatoes, corn, or seared steak.

Game plan: The butter can be tightly wrapped in plastic wrap and frozen for up to 1 month.

This recipe was featured as part of our Make-Ahead Car Camping Recipes.

Instructions

  1. 1Place the butter in a medium bowl and mash it with a rubber spatula until it’s very spreadable. Add the remaining ingredients and mix until thoroughly combined.
  2. 2Transfer the butter mixture to a sheet of plastic wrap. Shape it into a log by rolling it up in the plastic wrap, then twist the ends to seal. Place in the refrigerator to harden before using, at least 30 minutes.
