This blue cheese sauce goes perfectly with smoked buffalo wings, either drizzled over the top or served on the side to keep those fussy people happy.

You could also easily serve this with a steak for a nice creamy sauce.

Blue cheese does pack a bit of a punch but when combined with all of the other ingredients, it really mellows out the flavor and yes, also the smell that I know a lot of people just don’t like.

My children do not like the smell of blue cheese on its own, but they have no problem devouring blue cheese sauce by the bucket full.

The other ingredients mellow out the flavor so much that this recipe now has double the amount of blue cheese from when I first made it.

Thanks to additional ingredients, you won’t feel the smell of blue cheese, just its amazing taste

Although everyone who has tried it agreed, it works way better with more cheese.

How to use this dipping sauce

Well, the most obvious is as a topping for spicy Buffalo wings. The flavor combo of the tangy hot sauce and the cooling texture of the blue cheese sauce work so well together.

When you find a pairing that works so well together, why separate them?

I have also used it in burgers, and it was an absolute hit.

You can also use it on garden fresh leafy salads to spice them up or as a dipping sauce option for wedges, and nuggets.

Surprise yourself and try some with your next rib eye. You’ll be surprised at how well that combination works.

I don’t know what it is but it just works, the ripened cheese with sour cream, lemon juice, creamy mayonnaise and a hint of garlic is such a well-balanced taste combination that makes it so versatile.

What type of blue cheese to use

Now I will tell you this. It took me a while to find the right blue cheese for my sauce.

I went through quite a lot of different brands. Unfortunately, they all taste different. They do have their similarities, but once mixed with the other ingredients, it can change the overall final taste.

In saying that, they were all good, but when I used Costello’s branded blue-label cheese, it was not good. It was great.

So don’t be afraid to mix up the recipe a bit. Try different varieties of blue cheese.

How long will it last? 

Knowing my family, about 10 minutes if left out.

To be honest, in a closed container kept in the fridge, a week is about the limit I would keep.

Once I’ve made a batch, I’ll start using it on other dishes immediately. So it has never lasted a full week, mainly due to its versatility.
