I think it tastes great and nothing like a foot, although I've never eaten anybody's foot so I'm not really sure I know what compare it to... but it is a very strong flavor and I can see why some people don't enjoy it

not me, I like a good blue cheese butter on top of a nice steak... not all the time mind you, but sometimes it's a really nice combination of flavors, the key is doing a compound butter so it doesn't overwhelm the delicious natural flavor of the steak... :drool:

Absolutely. A nice Roquefort butter and some caramelized onion......sign me up.

Also dig blue cheese crumbled over a nice grilled baguette with sliced pears and a drizzle of honey

Blue cheese dressing and ranch dressing mixed together (aka "blanch" dressing) is the best for wings. Period.

i love it with wine.. roquefort and a big red is awesome. I'm also a slore for blue cheese and hot wings.

I might be able to get with a bleu cheese butter, or something, but the crumbles a top the steak thing just gets me all weird. Think Ruth's Chris style, not for me. I like a red wine with my seared bovine, and cheese in the mix just doesn't jive.

A favorite side in our house is my Smoked Bacon and Blue Cheese Potato Hash.

1/2 inch cube potatoes, season and roast them until they are extra crispy. Cook off some diced bacon in a pan. Drain off most of the bacon fat leaving just enough to cover the bottom of the pan. Add the potatoes, a good blue and just enough heavy cream to help melt the cheese. Too much cream and the potatoes and bacon lose their crisp, not enough and the cheese won't melt and it dominates the flavor too much.

my wife hates blue cheese, but absolutely loves this side.
