1 Tbsp. olive oil
2 shallots , thinly sliced
2 tsp. brown sugar
8 Tbsp. unsalted butter , at room temperature
2 tsp. FRENCH'S® Classic Yellow® Mustard Sweet
3 Tbsp. crumbled blue cheese
2 Tbsp. fresh chopped basil
1/4 tsp. each salt & black pepper
TO CARAMELIZE the shallots, heat a skillet over low heat and add the olive oil. Add the shallots with a pinch of salt and stir.
COOK for 8 to 10 minutes, stirring often, until golden and caramelized.Since shallots are thinner than onions, they can burn easily so watch closely! Stir in the brown sugar and cook for another 5 minutes.
IN A LARGE BOWL, combine the butter, shallots, mustard, blue cheese, basil, salt and pepper. Stir and mash until combined
AT THIS POINT, you can leave the butter softened so it's easy for spreading, or you can place it in a square of parchment paper and roll it up tightly, refrigerating it until firm.
