Recipe type: Cheese
 
This bacon & blue cheese spread is amazing on lightly buttered toast, crostini or crackers and even to turbo charge a burger. It can be a real lifesaver when catering for cocktail parties or any finger food occasion.
Ingredients
  • 3 Tbs Walnuts
  • 2 Tbs Fresh parsley
  • 2 Tbs Chopped chives
  • 240g Soft cream cheese
  • 100g Creamy blue cheese
  • 200g Streaky bacon, chopped and crispy fried
  • Thinly sliced pickled gherkin
  • Dried chilli flakes
  • Crackers, crostini or toast to serve
Instructions
  1. To start you need 100g of good creamy blue cheese and 240g of soft cream cheese.
  2. Fry 200g of chopped streaky bacon until crispy and golden, and roughly chop 2 tablespoons each of fresh parsley and chives. Measure out 3 tablespoons of walnuts.
  3. Place all of this in a tall jug, starting with the cheese. Crumble the blue cheese on top of this, followed by the remaining ingredients.
  4. Use your stick blender to machine this all until fine. You can also do this in a stand blender if you don't have a stick blender.
  5. Transfer the spread to a piping bag fitted with a large star nozzle and pipe the spread onto your crackers.
  6. Garnish the tops with thinly sliced pickled gherkin and a light sprinkling of dried chilli flakes before serving.
