    I think you are supposed to pick them when they are small.These were just salvaged from the mature beets.I think I'm gonna try sauteing them in bacon grease with garlic,sugar and shallots.

    Put some pinneapple head on them, you'll dig them then.
    Pickled beets, and yes, beet salad. You are on the right thinking of cheese and nuts. Asiago and walnuts, also. A nice fresh made vinagartee.

    Hoss, this from Dame Judith... VERY good just roasted (all I've tried so far). Adding bleu cheese sounds GREAT though!

    I've only tried cooking beets on the Egg once and that was because it was part of the "On Our Grills 4 Ingredient Challenge" thing I do each month. Otherwise they would never have gotten in my shopping cart :laugh:

    Mine were just okay, too, so I can't help you on recipes.

    I checked my favorite book, The Flavor Bible and it pairs beets with salty cheeses (blue, cambozola, goat, etc, butter, chives, lemon, dijon mustard and honey. Not sure if that helps any, it is still beets, ha ha.

    Three words...BALSAMIC GLAZED BEETS! I make them at almost every Eggfest I've been to... including next week at Pittsburgh! Tastes like candy due to the sugar in the beets!!

    Here's a link to my recipe http://girlyegggourmet.blogspot.com/2011/06/girlyegg-gourmet-takes-on-atlanta.html?m=1

    Hoss,

    Borscht. Polish stle with nothing but beets and garlic. Keep adding beets til the soup is like syrup. Russian style with beef, onions and cabbage.
