Savory Compound Butters

I was watching Food Network the other day and watched a woman whip up a Cobb Salad butter, which sounds gross. I think Savory Compound Butter sounds better. I've always loved orange butter and honey butter, but never thought to do this. Best of all, I just watched her whip it up, and then, made my own with approximations. This is delicious on baked potatoes! I think it would also be good on French bread.
4 strips of bacon, fried, cooled and chopped
handful of chives (I probably ended up with about 1/4 c once these were minced)
4 oz crumbled blue cheese
1 stick of softened butter

Mash all ingredients together with a fork.
