When we hear blue cheese sauce we immediately think of hot wings. It’s often served on the side with a few slivers of celery.

It’s cool, creamy, and very flavorful. In fact, it goes well with almost any meat. It’s much like our horseradish sauce but made with blue cheese instead of horseradish.

Blue cheese tends to be bold and salty in flavor due to the mold and bacteria that are encouraged to grow on the cheese. It’s definitely not for everyone!

There are a few varieties of blue cheese and it’s really up to you which one you choose to make the sauce with. We went with Gorgonzola that is already crumbled.

The sauce is extremely easy to make and contains a handful of simple ingredients that you may already have on hand.
