Steak with Blue Cheese Butter

Several weeks ago I posted that I was working on a secret project for my bestie Katie Wheeler, who is getting married in April. Since I was unable to go to her bachelorette party this weekend I made her a Bachelorette Box. She has opened the box by now so I can share with you the pictures of what I made her.
This is her Bride to Be Shirt a the Bridal Sash for her to wear the says "Future Mrs. Wharry and Bride to Be." (Katie loves Polka Dots)
 The veil for her to wear this weekend.
 A wine glass for her to use, I especially love the rhinestones on the base.
My friend/neighbor, Clare made the box with me since she wasn't able to go to the party either. We sent pictures of our faces on sticks so we could be floating faces in the pictures. The box also included chocolate kisses, popcorn and sweet tea vodka. I hope you girls have fun this weekend, we miss you Katie!!

Steak with Blue Cheese Butter

1 strip of bacon
6 Tbsp butter (room temp)
1/4 cup blue cheese (I used gorgonzola)
New York Strip Steak
salt and pepper

Cook Bacon until crisp.
Allow to cool then crumble into small pieces.
Blend together butter, bacon and blue cheese.
Roll butter into parchment paper, then refrigerate for an hour or freeze for about 15 minutes.
See, it looks great!
Slice 2 pieces for each steak.
Preheat oven to 500 degrees. Cook Steak in olive oil (or butter) for 4-5 minutes on each side.
Place the slices of blue cheese butter on top of the steaks. Place the pan with the steaks into the oven for a few minutes.
Remove and let steaks sit for about 2 minutes before serving.
This is such a yummy steak, I have already made it twice and have it on the menu again. You can keep the butter in the freezer for a month before it goes bad, therefore you can make it easily several times.
