This spread is also delicious served on apple or pear wedges. Rub them first with lemon juice to prevent discoloration.

Everyone I had for dinner loved this. It is simple to make. I would take it out of the frig about an hour ahead to let it come to room tep. Cold it is a hard to spread.

Really loved it as did my guests.I added the Stilton at room temp. Served the spread at room temp. It was spreadable and allowed the blue cheese aroma to add to the experience. A quick and easy hit for entertaining.

I doubled the recipe "except" for the Blue Cheese. I also added sour cream until it was the spreadable consistency I wanted. This worked well, and everyone liked it, and some asked for the recipe.

It was okay, but next time I would add more blue cheese and pepper. It seemed too mild to my taste.

So easy and really good! A nice alternative to just plain cheese and crackers.

This was incredibly easy, but hard to spread on crackers. I would try toasted French baguette slices or sourdough for a little flexibility.

I would think about a half a cup of chopped apples or firm pears added in , or perhaps paper thin slices layered with the spread and the crackers would give a nice representation of all of these flavors. Peppery arugula shredded into the spread might not be bad either.

i liked the flavors but i think next time i will use less blue cheese. it seemed kind of heavy. it was better with the pears than the crackers. the sweet and savory off set each other

I added about 1 tsp. of honey as well when I stirred in the walnuts and then drizzled a bit over the top - delicious! Served with crackers and grapes.

You can also stuff mushrooms with this mixture and bake until the cheese is bubbly and lightly browned. Delish!
