Blue Cheese Compound Butter to Top Steaks

This is one of my favorite ways to enjoy a great steak!  

We love Blue Cheese so it makes sense to top our steaks with Blue Cheese Compound Butter.  
Compound butter is typically butter rolled into cylinders and chilled (can be frozen) and then sliced into pats that are served on steaks, fish or vegetables.  

1 pound (4 sticks) unsalted butter
6 ounces blue cheese

In a large bowl, blend the butter with your (clean) hands.  You can cream the butter using the paddle attachment of your stand mixer - but you want the butter really soft to incorporate the blue cheese.

Add the blue cheese and continue blending the butter until fully blended.

Spread out a large square of plastic wrap across your work area, the place the butter onto the plastic.  You now roll the butter into a cylinder inside the plastic wrap.

Tie each end into a knot. 

Chill or freeze until needed and serve in thick slices on top of each hot, freshly grilled steak.  

~Happy grilling~
