Blue Cheese-Onion Steak Bites {Recipe}

This weekend, J & I tried this delicious recipe for Blue Cheese-Onion Steak Bites found in Taste of Home magazine’s February/March 2011 issue. The bites are easy to prepare and very yummy. They work great as a meal or as an appetizer for brunch or party.

The following recipe yields 4 dozen bites, but J & I reduced the ingredients quite a bit. Here is the recipe from Taste of Home (you can adjust as needed):
·        3 large onions, thinly sliced in rings
·        12 garlic cloves, minced
·        3 tbsp. butter
·        4 beef tenderloin steaks (6 oz. each)
·        ¼ tsp. salt
·        ¼ tsp. pepper
·        1 loaf French bread baguette, cut into ¼-in slices
·        4 oz. cream cheese softened
·        1 cup crumbled blue cheese
·        1/8 tsp. salt
·        1/8 tsp. pepper

1.     In a large skillet, sauté onions, garlic, and butter until softened. Reduce heat to medium-low; cook, stirring occasionally, for 30 minutes or until golden brown.
2.     Meanwhile, sprinkle beef with salt and pepper. Using long-handled tongs, moisten a paper towel with cooking oil and lightly coat the grill rack.
3.     Grill steaks, covered, over medium heat for 5-7 minutes on each side or until meat reaches desired doneness. Cut into thin slices.
4.     Place bread on ungreased baking sheet. Bake at 400 degrees for 4-6 minutes or until lightly browned.
5.     Place the cream cheese, blue cheese, salt and pepper in a food processor; cover and process until blended. Spread each bread slice with 1 tsp. cheese mixture; top with steak and onions.
6.     Prep: 15 minutes, Cook: 35 minutes, Yield: 4 dozen

The bites are absolutely delicious, and the filet melts in your mouth.
Happy Cooking, y’all!
