Baguette with Blue Cheese and Honey

DSC_0172

One of our local grocery stores in Portland, Zupan’s, has the best cheese selection.  One day I walked in and the cheese specialist, Prince, asked me if he could help me.  I was looking for a blue cheese to put on steak.  He suggested St. Agur blue cheese because it was mild and so creamy.  Then he made a suggestion that changed my life:  “Try it on a baguette and drizzle honey on it.  It’s amazing.”  Okay.  Maybe life-changing is a bit strong, but this is a seriously delicious, simple treat.  You can get into the gourmet honeys and try different breads, but a smear of St. Agur on a piece of crusty bread and honey – warm or at room temperature.  It just doesn’t get any better.  It’s addictive.
