Blue Cheese-Onion Steak Bites Recipe

“I love the flavor pairing of blue cheese and steak. Adding garlic and onion make it even better. This is a hearty appetizer for parties or a great light lunch.”—Jo-Ellen Neil, Arroyo Grande, California
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Cook: 35 min. YIELD:48 servings


  • 3 large onions, thinly sliced into rings
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 12 garlic cloves, minced
  • 4 beef tenderloin steaks (6 ounces each)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 French bread baguette (10-1/2 ounces), cut into 1/4-inch slices
  • 4 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) crumbled blue cheese
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper


  • 1. In a large skillet, saute onions in butter until softened. Reduce heat to medium-low; cook, stirring occasionally, for 30 minutes or until onions are golden brown. Add garlic; cook 1 minute longer.
  • 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 or broil 4 in. from the heat for 5-7 minutes on each side or until meat reaches desired doneness (for medium-rare, a thermometer should read 145°; medium, 160°; well-done, 170°). Cut into thin slices.
  • 4. Place bread on ungreased baking sheets. Bake at 400° for 4-6 minutes or until lightly browned.
  • 5. Meanwhile, place the cream cheese, blue cheese, salt and pepper in a food processor; cover and process until blended. Spread each bread slice with 1 teaspoon cheese mixture; top with steak and onions. Yield: 4 dozen.

"This was fabulous.... just fabulous. I honestly can't think of one thing I would change. I went a little heavy on the cheese spread, so when I do it again, I will abide by the 1 teaspoon suggestion, as the blue cheese can be potent if you use too much. You will not be disappointed by this recipe!!!!"
