Tastes pretty much just like plain blue cheese. For this to really work I had to add 1 part cream cheese to 1 part dip. Read More

I loved the taste of the blue cheese and porte but the blue cheese was very strong. I added a little cream cheese and extra porte. I would also make half of this recipe next time. Read More

WOW! This is a great appetizer but watch out for the port! If you let this sit too long it will self-ferment and become alcohol in solid form! Read More

I added 4 oz cream cheese to tone down the blue cheese. My guests loved it. It makes lots of spread. I froze half of it in smalled containers to use later when I need a quick appetizer. It tasted great but was a strong flavor. Read More

I made this for an office party and the staff set it aside so they could have it the following week! Great taste and it does last forever in the fridge. Very stiff spread but yummy. I used less blue cheese and sliced pecans b'cuz they were all I had. Read More
