Cat’s Fav Apple and Cheese Treat

Red Apple

I first learned about this treat at a small deli in Portland OR, whose owner was from England. He served slices of apple with blue stilton cheese as a snack or dessert, and I got hooked. If you’re not familiar with stilton, it is a British blue cheese.

When I moved to Montana, I couldn’t find stilton, so I used brie with my apple slices – delicious! It is a double-cream cheese with a tasty white mold surrounding the creamy cheese. Unfortunately, after more than 10 years, I developed a food sensitivity to the brie. I couldn’t go without my apple and cheese treat, and still could not find stilton here, so I bought Yancy’s Fancy “Bergenost” Triple Cream and Point Reyes Farmstead Cheese Company’s “Original Blue” Cheese. Both are very buttery, so easy to mix together when at room temperature. The combo is even better than brie (in my humble opinion), and close competition with stilton!

Info on these cheeses

To make my mixture, I use about 1 Tbsp of the Bergenost and 2 tsp of the Blue, then mix them together after they have warmed to room temperature.
