Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Slice the top off the head of garlic and drizzle with olive oil. Wrap tightly in aluminum foil and roast for one hour or until garlic is soft. Remove from oven and cool.

Squeeze 4 roasted garlic cloves from the skin and place in the bowl of a food processor. Add the softened butter, blue cheese and parsley and pulse until smooth. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Place whipped butter in airtight container and refrigerate until ready to use. Let the butter soften before serving.

To use for meat topping:
