1. Stuff endive with a mixture of blue cheese, cream cheese, crumbled bacon, and snipped chives, and top with crushed nuts. – ChervilGeorge
3. Go "decadent" with warm Bacon Blue Cheese Dip. – foodieX2
4. Combine equal parts Roquefort and room-temperature unsalted butter, form into 1-inch balls, and roll in crushed walnuts or pecans. – cheesemaestro
5. Combine equal parts blue cheese and butter, spread on baguette slices, and top with sliced radishes. – blue room
6. Stuff mushroom caps with blue cheese, crabmeat, and bacon, then broil until just browned. – dordalina
