Pie #60- Blue cheese February 18, 2013

A huge thank you to my NDA highschool classmate, Juliana Kascsak for sharing this recipe with me. The minute I saw it, I knew it would have to be posted in the blog. Thank you, Juliana!

This savory pie is perfect for a party… if you like blue cheese, you will love this pie! It is quick and very easy to make AND incredibly delicious!!!

 BLUE CHEESE PIE

2 large white onions sliced (or chunked) thickly

1 stick of butter

8 ounces of blue cheese

8 ounces of cream cheese

2 prepared pie crusts*

Black pepper

Place bottom layer of pie crust in a 9 “ pie plate.  Cut the blue and cream cheese into large chunks; place two cheeses in a large bowl.

Sauté onions and black pepper in butter till glassy.  When done pour entire pan of onion and butter mix over cheeses and stir till well combined.  Spoon mixture into prepared pie crust and flatten.  Top with second crust and crimp ends together.  Bake on a 350-degree oven till crust is brown… (You may egg wash the crust for shine if desired).

Serve right from the oven with fresh fruit or vegetables…crackers  are not really needed if you utilize the crust.

Enjoy…Juliana

(*Since it is against my own rules of the blog to use prepared pie pastry crusts, I included the homemade pastry recipe that I used for this pie. )

Personal Notes:

  • INCREDIBLE! Definitely a new addition to my favorite appetizer recipes.

    As I am a huge blue cheese fan, this pie was amazing. The blue cheese flavor is in each bite but not too strong. The addition of the onion added a nice bit of contrasting texture to the creaminess of the cheese. I think the only down side it I know how rich it is from reading the ingredients so significant self-control is needed or I imagine I could eat an entire pie in a single day. Yummy!!!

  2. Incredible! A fantastic appetizer. I could even eat this as a brunch item on a bed of spinach or mixed greens and fruit. Very savory.
