    My whole family enjoyed this recipe. However, we felt that there was a bit too much butter. Other than that, a delicious, low carb dinner for all!

    A workmate is wondering if you can swap the blue cheese for any other kind of cheese like feta or cream cheese if you are not partial to blue cheese.

    Feta would be a better sub for blue cheese since it is the same consistency.

    I always drain my beef as I use 85/15. If you use a leaner beef, you may not need to drain.
