Blue Cheese Sauce to top off Broccoli Week on the blog! Well, I had to bring you something extra tasty because my husband kept saying that Broccoli week was far too healthy! Last week I brought you two great new Broccoli recipes: Grilled Garlicky Broccoli and Caramelized Broccoli.
If you like Blue Cheese, you’ll love this sauce! It’s rich and creamy without being too heavy. Just the right balance of flavors. If you’re like me, you’d be inclined to just leave that little teaspoon of oil out of the recipe. I highly recommend you use it in this! It just rounds out the sauce and makes it a little extra creamy! So, go ahead, it’s fine to use it!
This Blue Cheese Sauce can either be poured directly over whatever you’re serving, think veggies like broccoli and carrots, baked potatoes, steak, burgers. Or, this Blue Cheese Sauce can be served as a dipping sauce on the side, try it with fresh veggies, crackers, or bread. Either way, you’ll be really happy with it.
I love blue cheese, but I definitely have my favorite kind. I get this Cambozola Triple Cream Soft Ripened Blue Cheese at Trader Joe’s. It’s a really nice creamy blue cheese that isn’t too harsh. I know some blue cheeses can be really overwhelming and pungent, even to the point that you don’t want to eat them. So, I recommend that you go with your favorite blue cheese, or if you can find this kind, do give it a go. I love it!
