I was really sceptical about this considering the small amount of ingredients but this is very tasty, I also used Gruyere cheese for those who weren't a fan of the blue and that went down just as well!

So quick and simple to make and gorgeous to eat! And it's one of those wonderful little recipes that looks like it should require more effort than it does.

Very yummy! - I also tried this recipe using Philadelphia with chives and oregano instead of the butter. This proved just as successful!!

Made this for supper for 2 with the largest 4 field mushrooms I could find. Although my friend doesn't like blue cheese and I am not particularly fond of walnuts there was something about this recipe that attracted us. Not fond of the crunchy element, so chopped them quite finely with a chopper. I find a processor gives you bits and powder rather than the even nibs of chopping. Also, when they were cooked they were not too crunchy which is the element of the dish I wouldn't have liked . Glad I was brave! We both loved it. Stick to smooth and creamy Gorgozola if you are not a huge blue cheese fan as it is very mild compared to Stilton (which I love). Made as per recipe for a change because I am a massive 'tweaker'.Served with rocket and garlic bread which really went soooo well with it. Now I usually try to make to recipe first and if it's to my liking I will tweak next time.

This is one of my favourite things to have for lunch or a light supper. I use a good Stilton cheese and it tastes great, ideal for those autumn lunches or suppers.

Tried this with feta and no nuts as that's what I had and it was just about edible. Followed the actual recipe this time and it was delicious! Def needs the strong flavour. Will be doing it again.
