Frisée Salad with Blue Cheese, Avocado and Soft-boiled Eggs by Gordon Ramsay

Frisée Salad with Blue Cheese, Avocado and Soft-boiled Eggs

Frisée (pronounced “free-ZAY”) is a variation of endive. It has a slightly bitter flavour, similar to radicchio, or Belgian endive, but a lot milder.
This keto friendly, gluten-free, deliciously healthy and different salad is full of flavour and texture and makes a stunning salad starter for any festive occasion or as a light, yet satisfying workday dinner. If you don’t find this distinctive curly lettuce in your grocery store, just pick up some salad mixes, like mesclun or your favourite mix of baby greens.
I have added wasabi (Japanese horseradish) for some heat and a bit of garden herbs for the freshness to the homemade mayonnaise. Feel free to use your favourite salad dressing instead.

Salad Wasabi Herb Mayonnaise
  • 3 Eggs, medium
  • 1/2 head Frisée
  • 50 g Radicchio, thinly sliced
  • 1 Red onion, halved and thinly sliced
  • 1 Avocado
  • 100 g Blue cheese, cubed or crumbled
  • 1-2 Apricot, sliced, optional
  • 3/4 cup Mayonnaise, homemade or storebought
  • 2 tsp Wasabi paste
  • 2 tbsp Fresh herbs, finely chopped (I used a mix of cilantro and basil)
  1. Bring a small saucepan of water to a boil and fill a small bowl with ice water. Carefully lower the eggs into the boiling water and cook for 6 minutes for soft-cooked. Transfer the eggs to the ice water to cool. Carefully peel the eggs. Cut the eggs in half lengthwise.
  2. Meanwhile, prepare the dressing. Blend all the ingredients together. Chill until ready for use.
  3. Trim the root end from the frisée and coarsely chop the frisée. Thinly shred the radicchio. Cut the red onion in half and thinly slice. Cut the avocado in half. Remove the pit, scoop out the flesh, and cut the flesh into bite-size pieces.
  4. In a large bowl, toss together the frisée, radicchio, red onion, avocado, and blue cheese. Transfer the salad to individual plates and top with the eggs and apricot slices if using. Serve with wasabi herb mayonnaise.

Introduction and My Rating

This very special cream cheese coffee cake is much better than you will pick up the local bakery.

Think of this as the perfect combination of cheesecake with a streusel-topped coffee cake. It is simple to make with the easy to follow step by step photo instructions,

It is not a coffee cake to serve warm out the oven for breakfast. It is a make-ahead great treat for special occasions.

Variations of this recipe appear around the web in lots of places, but I think I will name this Allrecipes.com Raspberry Cream Cheese Coffee Cake as the inspiration piece since it is one of the older versions. I adapted to fresh blueberries, simplified, and organized the technique for you.

My Rating

My rating system. Great 5 out of 5


An easy rating to do.

The Fruit

I converted this to blueberries from raspberries. But almost any fruit should do. But you can use preserves instead of fresh fruit. Good choices, in addition to blueberries or raspberries, would include apricots, or cherries.

For the blueberries, you can use fresh or frozen. Either will do fine and no need to thaw frozen berries.

🥘The Pan

This recipe calls for a 9-inch springform pan.  It needs to be well coated with flour.

No springform pan? An 8-9 nine squire pan would do, but it needs to be deep. I suggest covering the bottom with a piece of parchment paper along with flouring the sides.

✔️Tips

This crust would become dry if overcooked, so be careful.

A nice glaze would be good on this cake.

Storage: Store airtight refrigerated for up to 3 days. You can also freeze for 2-3 months sealed airtight.

  4. Do not cut before completely cooled.

Blue Cheese and Garlic Compound Butter by Gordon Ramsay


Make that steak or vegetables pop with this wonderful blue cheese and garlic compound butter. Add layers of butter, garlic, and blue cheese to make the meal extra special.

Introduction and My Rating

There are as many compound butter recipes as there are people. Well almost.

After reading many of these recipes, we came up with what my wife really wanted, great blue cheese taste with a bunch of garlic and butter. We have repeated this many times since.

My Rating

My rating system. Great 5 out of 5


Excellent addition to steak, veggies, or even a baked potato.

🧂Ingredients

The Butter

I use regular salted butter softened a little be sitting at room temperature or softened slightly in the microwave. If you use unsalted butter, you should add about one-quarter teaspoon of salt.

The Blue Cheese

Blue cheese crumbles are made for salad toppings and are perfect here but you can use any blue cheese you have and just break it up to incorporate it completely. 1/2 cup of crumbles is about 2 ozs of weight.

Other Ingredients

Now comes the fun. You can add almost anything you think would be good: Garlic, fresh herbs, shallots, scallions, spices, zest from fruits, cheeses, but almost anything you want. Now, I think the combination I have here is exceptionally good, and my wife has made me repeat it many times.

👨‍🍳Uses

Most commonly, compound butter is added to steaks. We commonly use it on strip steaks to make them exceptional for special dinners. But use it on any steak like ribeye or t-bones.

It will also add a ton of flavor to vegetables or a baked potato.

A little goes long ways. A tablespoon or two is more than enough for lots of flavors.

❄️Storage

While butter stores well, there are fresh components here. I feel that 3 to 4 days refrigerated is as long as I would trust it.

For freezing, I generally will cut the compound butter into slices of about a tablespoon each, seal tight, and flat before freezing. We can then take out a few when needed. They are good for 2 to 3 months.
