Blue Cheese-Stuffed Strawberries Recipe

Blue Cheese-Stuffed Strawberries Recipe

I was enjoying a salad with strawberries and blue cheese when the idea hit me to stuff the strawberries and serve them as an appetizer. It worked out great, and the flavors blend so nicely. —Diane Nemitz, Ludington, Michigan
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 25 min. YIELD:16 servings

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 3 ounces fat-free cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup crumbled blue cheese
  • 16 large fresh strawberries
  • 3 tablespoons finely chopped pecans, toasted

Directions

  • 1. Place vinegar in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil; cook until liquid is reduced by half. Cool to room temperature.
  • 2. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, beat cream cheese until smooth. Beat in blue cheese. Remove stems and scoop out centers from strawberries; fill each with about 2 teaspoons cheese mixture. Sprinkle pecans over filling, pressing lightly. Chill until serving. Drizzle with balsamic vinegar. Yield: 16 appetizers.

"This was a huge hit with my husband! I made them for him as a surprise treat for our anniversary, I did not find large strawberries so I just sliced the small ones in half and smeared the mix on."

"These strawberries are WONDERFUL! I have been using Kraft Roka cheese in those little glasses to stuff the berries with. I think those low ratings should be removed since they didn't bother to try the recipe."

"Delicious! I cored the strawberries with a "tomato king" tool...worked great. To serve I cut some wooden skewers in half and stuck one in the bottom of each stuffed berry...then popped them in a short vase."

"I replaced the blue cheese with Philadelphia Indulgence Dark chocolate cream cheese. It is yummy. I blended the regular cream cheese and the chocolate and added slivered almonds to the mix. Then sprinkled more almonds on top before pouring the balsamic vinegar over them. I left some strawberries without vinegar topping. It is an acquired taste ! What an impressive dessert !"

"I have not made these but will when I have all the ingredients. I'm giving 5 stars anyway. I really don't feel its fair for someone(Petune) to rate something poorly when they don't take the time to read a recipe or make it either. Thank you Diane N. for sharing your recipe!"

"Oooops, I just noticed at the very end of the recipe to "drizzle with balsamic vinegar". Sorry. But is the vinegar really necessary?"

"They sound good. But..............the recipe ingredients call for 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar, and the recipe itself makes no mention of when to add this or WHAT it is for. Please explain.

Thank you.

"I made these once when I had company and now it's requested that I bring them to every event. The last time I made them, I used the processed blue cheese spread and I found it to be easier to work with. Also, I used candied walnuts, instead of regular."

"Made these for a Memorial Day gathering, and they were a huge hit! Doubled the recipe & used walnuts because we didn't have pecans. Scooped out the strawberries with a small melon baller. Prepped the berries using a mini muffin pan to old them upright for stuffing & chilling. Served in a white deviled egg platter, worked wonderfully! Will definitely make again & again!"
