Blue cheese sauce is not about subtlety. It’s the food equivalent of a kindergartner doing full-tilt cartwheels through your living room.

A good blue cheese sauce says, “Ignore everything else that’s happening and give me, and the burger you slathered me on, your full attention.”

That’s just the way I like it.

WHAT DOES THIS BLUE CHEESE SAUCE TASTE LIKE?

Blue Cheese Sauce is assertive and salty, with a tangy garlic kick. This sauce is for the spirited among us. It’s for those who want their food to emerge from the shadows and be recognized.

My favorite way to use it is slathered on a burger and combined with Bacon Jam.

INGREDIENTS FOR BLUE CHEESE SAUCE

My brother, who is an excellent cook in his own right, taught me the foundation for this recipe.

He matched the boldness of blue cheese with the strong flavors of garlic, buttermilk, and sour cream. It only takes minutes to mix together, but you want to let all the flavors mingle in the fridge for about 30 minutes before serving it to the renegades among you.

Can I Double Blue Cheese Sauce?

A little goes a long way with this sauce, but if you need more for a big gathering or you really love blue cheese then feel free to double or even triple it. It will keep for about a week.

CHUNKY OR SMOOTH BLUE CHEESE SAUCE

The sauce is intended to be chunky, but if you if you prefer a smoother texture, blitz it with an immersion blender or pulse it in the food processor until you reach a creamier consistency.

WAYS TO USE BLUE CHEESE SAUCE

The humble burger doesn’t get all the fun with this sauce. Spoon it over steak, serve it alongside chicken wings and vegetables or thin it out and drizzle it across grilled romaine. Use it as a spread on grilled or cold sandwiches of the cheese, meat or vegetable varieties.

Let’s get this party started!
