Ingredients

  • 1 pound Maytag blue cheese, crumbled
  • 1 cup toasted walnut pieces
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • Salt
  • Freshly ground white pepper
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 cup thinly sliced onions

Directions

In a food processor, fitted with a metal blade, combine the cheese, walnuts and cream. Puree until smooth. Season with salt and pepper. In a small saute pan, over medium heat, add the oil.
