- Caramelized pecans stuffed with Bluehorn Blue cheese and a balsamic honey glaze make a crowd-pleasing appetizer – one of Rogue Creamery’s favorite recipes. Bluehorn Blue is also a wonderful accompaniment to steak, pork loin, or duck confit drizzled with a bordelaise sauce. Because of its convenient, attractive size, Bluehorn Blue is a perfect centerpiece on a cheese platter, surrounded by nuts, fruits, and charcuterie.
- Bluehorn Blue pairs excellently with a variety of red wines, including Syrah and Pinot Noir. We also enjoy it with dessert wine, especially Ruby Port. With flavors of caramel, vanilla, and cream, wheat ales and porters will complement this cheese as well.
