A note about serious food allergies

Sweet fig and salty bacon come together like two lovers taking a stroll by a river on a warm May day. (Creative writing class A+ work here!) They're strong flavors, and they do great work here with this chicken. But they aren't the only heavy hitters here: is there anything that reads "strong flavors" more than "blue cheese fondue?" The fondue turns the green beans into something really special, like two lovers taking a stroll by a river on a warm M--- oh, maybe our story-telling needs a bit of work.

Cooking Guidelines

To ensure food safety, the FDA recommends the following as minimum internal cooking temperatures:

Customize It Instructions

  • If using filets mignon or NY strip steak, pat dry. Cook in a large non-stick pan with 2 tsp. olive oil over medium-high heat until steak reaches desired doneness, or 4-6 minutes per side for medium/medium-well. Rest, 3 minutes. Steak thickness can vary; if you receive a thinner steak, we recommend checking for doneness sooner.

  • If using salmon, pat dry. Add salmon, skin-side up first, to a large non-stick pan over medium heat with 2 tsp. olive oil. Cook until salmon reaches minimum internal temperature, 4-6 minutes per side.

  3. 3

    Finish Vegetables and Make Blue Cheese Fondue

    Add half the blue cheese (to taste; reserve remaining for garnish), softened cream cheese, and 1/4 cup water to hot, dry pan and stir to combine. Bring to a simmer.
