Blue Cheese Spread on Water Crackers with Figs

This was a big hit at Easter with both young and old. (Check out what I brought to Easter here.) Several people asked for this recipe. It was super easy to make. I made it a couple of days ahead so that I didn’t have any last-minute prep work to do on it. So nice, because I just took it out of the fridge and let it soften to room temperature before serving.

I used endive leaves for some and water crackers for some. This would be a really impressive (and easy) appetizer for a party.

I served the spread with water crackers and gluten-free rice crackers. It would also be delicious served on apple wedges with a drizzle of honey. Or, take a little and mound it inside an endive spear and top with a toasted walnut half. Fancy! I think it would also be great for a sandwich spread, maybe with a fresh tomato slice and a little fresh basil. mmmmm.

I’ll definitely make this one again!
