In honor of this wonderful thread on the merits of blue cheese used in entrees http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/917925, I thought I'd inquire - what are your favorite savory blue cheese recipes?
My CHOW license might be at risk, but I love a great buttermilk blue cheese sauce or a blue cheese vinaigrette with meat and have also engaged in blue cheese-crusted meats and all sorts of blue cheese stuffed dishes from mushrooms to chicken to pork.
mushroom duxelles with bleu cheese, caramelized onions and a smidge of fig jam and those little phyllo cups are great for this. it can also be a "pizza" or flatbread topping, but that works better if you whizz the cheese and fig jam in the food pro first.
bleu cheese with sliced pears also work like this as do bleu cheese and prosciutto with fresh figs.
dates or prunes stuffed with bleu cheese and an almond, then wrapped with bacon and baked
open-face roast beef sandwiches with bleu cheese that's been whizzed with a bit of horseradish, then topped this with arugula or cress
