My sister, Caroline, loves gorgonzola. For her birthday, I made her a simple gnocchi alla gorgonzola. When it came time to plate the gnocchi, I realized I had no garnish. I quickly rummaged through the fridge searching for any kind of herb I could use as a garnish. Luckily, I found a handful of chives. Sauce was poured, parmesan was shaved and chives were chopped. The dish was a smashing success and the unexpected inspiration for this cheesy-buttery goodness. What would you pair with Gorgonzola Chive Butter?
1/2 c. butter
3 tbsp. gorgonzola, crumbled
1 tbsp. fresh chives, chopped
Place the butter into a bowl. Mix the crumbled gorgonzola into the butter using a spoon. Set aside.
Finely chop the chives. Mix the chives into the butter, save a few for the garnish. Pack into a ramekin or shape into a log using parchment paper. Let it cool in the fridge for 30-60 minutes.
