Bacon and Blue Cheese Compound Butter

I've found that useing the Grill Mates Montreal Steak Seasoning for when I'm grilling Steaks makes all the difference in how juicy and tasty a steak can really be! Today I was watching the food network and saw a recipe for "Compound Butter" It looked so fabulous I had to try it for topping our Steaks we were serving tonight for dinner! I've been marinating my steaks for at least a half hour in the Grill Mates marinade. Enjoy!

BACON and BLUE CHEESE Compound Butter

1 stick of butter, at room temperature
2-4 oz. of blue cheese, crumbled
5 slices smoked bacon, cooked until crisp and finely chopped
2 teaspoons chopped fresh chives
In a large bowl, using a rubber spatula, mix the buter, blue cheese, bacon and chives together until combined.Keep out the butter you think you'll use for topping your steaks. Then, dollop butter onto a piece of parchment or waxed paper. Roll into a log, twisting opposite ways on both ends of the paper to create a tightly wrapped log of butter. Refrigerate or freeze for later use.
I served this steak with french cut green beans, a green salad with lemon vinaigrette , and crusty french bread.
