Blue Cheese-Crusted Filet Mignon

Recipe Courtesy of:  Chef at Home (Food Network Canada)
Chef:  Michael Smith

Ingredients:

*(4) 6oz filet mignons
*Salt & Pepper
*Olive oil
*8oz blue cheese
*2 slices of whole grain bread, cubed
*1/2 stick butter (I use unsalted so I can control the salt content)
*Fresh ground pepper
*2 sprigs fresh rosemary

Directions:

*Preheat oven to 400 degrees
*Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat
*Season the filets with salt and pepper and rub with olive oil.  Place in the hot pan and sear for 1 minute on both sides.
*Place on a cooling rack fitted over a baking sheet, reserve the skillet.
*Puree the blue cheese, bread, butter, rosemary and pepper in a food processor until smooth.
*Pack blue cheese mixture onto the tops of the filets and bake in oven until meat is medium-rare, about 8-10 minutes, longer if you prefer your meat medium, etc.

*The meat and crust may be prepared in advance, refrigerated, then baked just before serving, if you choose to do this make sure you add more baking time.
