Each week I contribute an article to “Whole Foods Market Cooking Boulder” website expanding on one of the 10 Ways Tuesday ideas. This week I’ve baked Nigella Lawson’s recipe for Irish Blue Crackers from How to be a Domestic Goddess. Incorporating blue cheese into a cracker dough is a great way for those who aren’t into the texture/color of blue cheese to enjoy its earthy, pungent flavor. As always, the queen of comfort shows us how to whip up something quick and delicious with just a handful of pantry ingredients (exactly five).These buttery crackers are so good it’s hard to resist plucking them from the baking sheet before they’ve had a chance to cool. If you can wait, I suggest serving the blue cheese crackers with a glass of port and some dried tart cherries. For the full article and recipe, click on the icon below.

  1. Those blue cheese crackers look oh so good. How coincidental that you focused on an Irish Blue Cheese. On the trip to Ireland, we saw blue cheese being used in recipes on several occasions. In fact, the little cheese shop in Dingle where we stayed, was highlighting a local Irish blue cheese. It was so delicious! I loved it. Every year, I make this beef and stout pie. I roll blue cheese right into the crust and lay the crust completely over the Dutch oven.

    • Welcome back, Riley! The Irish are famous for their blue cheese- did you guys see the a Rock of Cashel? It’s a castle in Ireland and the area is famous for Cashel blue cheese. I love the idea of incorporating blue cheese into the pastry top for a beef and stout pie!
