Blue Cheese Butter
1 cup softened unsalted butter
2/3 cup crumbled blue cheese
2/3 cup chopped fresh parsley
1/4 cup brandy
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/8 teaspoon onion powder
1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/8 teaspoon hot sauce
In a medium bowl, cream together the butter, blue cheese, parsley,
brandy, garlic, onion powder, pepper, and hot sauce.
With a rubber spatula, place the mixture widthwise down the middle
of a 12x8 sheet of tinfoil or wax paper, leaving about an inch free
at either end. Roll the foil or paper up lengthwise to create a
little cylinder of butter. Seal the ends of the cylinder and freeze
for at least 1 hour before using.
To use butter grill, bake, or fry some chicken wings. Leave them
plain or toss them with some hot sauce in a bowl. Then slice a few
thin slices of wing butter from the roll in your freezer and toss
with the wings while they're still warm.
