Gorgonzola Scallion Compound Butter

Cooking method: Binding

Total preparation time: 10 min.


1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
4 oz. Gorgonzola cheese, crumbled at room temperature
1/4 cup scallions, chopped
1 tsp. black pepper, fresh, coarsely ground
1/2 tsp. balsamic vinegar


1. Using a hand-held mixer or a mini food processor, blend the butter and Gorgonzola until smooth. Add the scallions, pepper, and vinegar and blend for about 1 minute longer until fully incorporated. Alternatively, mix the ingredients by hand.

2. Lay a piece of plastic wrap on the countertop. Scrape the butter onto the plastic and, using the plastic wrap as a guide, form the butter into a log. Fold the ends closed and refrigerate until ready to use.
