Blue Cheese Stuffed Filet Mignon



If you are looking for something super delicious to make this weekend you should definitely check this out.  

This recipe idea came from one of my fabulous foodie friends at work .
She was showing me an article in this month's  Traditional Home magazine.

Blue Cheese Stuffed Filet Mignon
My interest was peaked.  
It sounded so good.

Now, I'm not usually a steak person.
I usually always choose fish or chicken, but a steak sounded perfect to me for dinner the other night.

The recipe in the magazine was for the steak to be marinated in Guinness Beer,
but I decided to take a different route for the marinade.

I just love the combination of blue cheese and roasted garlic.
Throw a little bacon and filet mignon in and you've got yourself a winner!!



Blue Cheese Stuffed Filet Mignon
(for 2 steaks)

2 teaspoons roasted garlic
2 teaspoons olive oil
1/2 teaspoon coarse salt
freshly ground pepper
2-8 ounce filet mignon
4 pieces of center cut bacon
2 tablespoons blue cheese

In a small bowl, mix together the first 4 ingredients into a paste.  Liberally coat the steaks with the marinade and allow them to sit for at least 1 hour.  Allow your steaks to come to room temperature.
Cut small slits on two sides of the steak and stuff with the blue cheese.  Wrap with the bacon and secure with toothpicks.

Preheat the grill to 500 degrees (you want it this hot to sear the outside and make the inside a nice medium-to medium-rare).  Reduce the heat to 450 degrees and cook the steak for about 7 minutes total on each side for medium-rare and 10 minutes total for medium, flipping each twice.



Yummy cheesy goodness!!!





Enjoy,
