Bleu Cheese Mousse

Food is meant to be fun and expressive. What could be more fun than a bleu cheese mousse? Not to mention that this is an easy and quick dish that will be sure to elevate your next football party!

Ingredients
1/4 cup mascarpone cheese
a heaping 1/4 cup of bleu cheese (I mixed together two different kinds for contrast)
1/3 cup of heavy cream
a pinch of salt
freshly cracked black pepper
optional garnishing ideas below

Directions
Combine the mascarpone and bleu cheese together. Mix until smooth either by hand or with food processor. Add salt and pepper to taste and mix it up until combined. Whip your heavy cream until soft-medium peaks. Fold the heavy cream into the cheese mixture in batches. Chill if desired. Enjoy!




Garnishing Ideas

Cheese is the best! Every since I was younger I was in charge of making the cheese platter at family events. I always made intense not-your-typical kid pairings.  On a couple occasions I have been asked to cater for people and put together various cheese platters.  I really wanted to take that idea of a cheese platter and apply it to this bleu cheese mousse. Pick from a couple of these ideas below or throw a party and display different condiment options.

Condiment-

  • Honey 
  • Dijion mustard
  • Balsamic glaze
Fruit/other-
  • Dried figs 
  • Various dried fruit 
  • Grapes 
  • Chopped nuts
  • Cornichons 
  • Bleu cheese crumbles for extra richness 
I would serve this mousse with crusty bread, crackers or even veggies. This would make a fun appetizer or side with a big salad! 




Happy Eatings!
