Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup chopped shallots
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 2-1/2 teaspoons baking powder

  • 1 teaspoon ground mustard
  • 1/4 cup cold butter
  • 1 large egg, room temperature
  • 1 cup 2% milk
  • 3/4 cup crumbled blue cheese
  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese

Directions

  1. In a small skillet, saute shallots in butter until tender; set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and mustard. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. In a small bowl, combine egg and milk. Stir into crumb mixture just until moistened. Fold in cheeses and reserved shallot mixture.
  3. Transfer to a greased 8x4-in. loaf pan. Bake at 325° for 50-60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan to wire rack.
