I saw these on Pinterest and it inspired me to try something similar. These were a big hit at my women’s night we do monthly in my neighborhood. The blue cheese is a really unexpected flavor with the strawberries and it is in no way overpowering. They were super easy to make- in under 10 minutes, too! Can’t beat that.
I did make a balsamic reduction to go over the strawberries (I think a fresh batch tastes best), but you can easily buy some in the store, if you feel like you don’t have time.
Blue Cheese-Stuffed Strawberries
- 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
- 3 ounces cream cheese
- 1/2 cup blue cheese (crumbled)
- 16 fresh strawberries
- 3 tablespoons finely chopped pecans, toasted
- Place vinegar in a saucepan. Bring to a boil, then cook until liquid is reduced by half. It should easily stick to the spoon. This only takes a few minutes, so it’s not something you can walk away from. Cool to room temp.
- In a small bowl, beat the cream cheese until fluffy. Mix in the blue cheese. Scoop out the centers from the strawberries, then fill each. Sprinkle the pecans over the blue cheese filling and press them down lightly to make them stick. Drizzle with balsamic vinegar right before you serve. Enjoy!
