How to use up leftover roquefort

  • Cheesy potatoes
    Mix small pieces of roquefort with breadcrumbs and grated parmesan, then sprinkle over a potato gratin before baking.


  • Creamy beef pie
    Lay slices of roquefort on top of a beef and ale pie filling before adding the pastry topping- it will melt into the filling for added indulgence.


  • Posh scrambled egg
    Whisk eggs with crumbled roquefort and cooked lardons. Add chopped herbs, season with salt and pepper, then cook in a buttered frying pan, scrambling the eggs as you go. Serve on toast with a squeeze of lemon juice.
