serves eight 

Bacon-wrapped filet mignon
8 8-10 oz. filet mignons, 3-inches thick
8 bacon slices
salt and pepper to taste

Blue cheese butter
1 stick butter
2 tablespoons minced garlic
¼ teaspoon onion powder
¼ teaspoon steak seasoning
75 grams blue cheese
¼ teaspoon dried thyme

Blue Cheese Butter: Soften the butter, either in the microwave or with time, and add to a food processor. Add the rest of the butter ingredients except the blue cheese. Mince the mixture until blended. Add the blue cheese and mix again. Transfer to a tupperware container and refrigerate, can be prepared ahead of time.

Bacon-wrapped filet mignon: Remove meat from the refrigerator and bring to room temperature (30 min). Salt and pepper both sides. Wrap with bacon, securing with a toothpick. Sear on high heat in an oven proof skillet for three minutes a side. Transfer to a 450 degree oven and cook until done. For a 3 inch filet mignon this will be 8-10 minutes but you should check with a thermometer for your desired finish level and meat thickness.
