Looking for a tried and tested Bleu Cheese dressing recipe. Big fan of the BC..but never made any..

My favorite store bought is the Wall-mart Marketside dressing. Believe me I have tried many a BC dressing. It is time to move into making my own. If you are proud of one....please share.

    I've never made my own before.  I normally buy the bolthouse blue cheese dressing.  It's in the refrigerated isle.

    I used to make it when I worked at Mortons Steakhouse - so much better than bottle.  Now I want to find that recipe!  I will see if I can dig it up for you . .

    look at the dressing on the cooking channel for Steakhouse Steaks by Ina Garten.   It is fantastic on all steaks and on pork tenderloin.  haven't tried any other meats

    My favorite is Marie's.  They make a Chunky and an Extra Chunky.  Give it a try.  I think you'll like it.

    I have tried and have used Marzetti and Marie's over the years. They are both serviceable in my opinion. As stated earlier....and you might want to try it...Walmart carries (in their produce Frig area) a good prepared dressing in their  Marketside dressing line. I like it better than the Marie's and Marzetti.....but you have the Walmart problems.....being out of it most of the time etc. etc. etc....not here to bash them today.

    I just don't think you can beat a good fresh homemade Bleu Cheese Dressing. I myself would go a bit of heavy on the cheese and prefer chunky.  Just my two cents worth. I think we can all agree that it is some good chit! and just want to have the ability to improve upon it.

    I'm often lazy with things, so I just buy something like Ken's and then add some blue cheese crumbles to make it extra chunky.  


    Which came first the chicken or the egg?  I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg.

    With you on that one....but have been getting some really good Bleu Cheese lately from specialty stores.....and want to do some experiment with making the dressings.....At the end of the day, i will prob just take a little of everything i read....and embark on my own. Wife is an artist so i am encouraged to paint outside of the lines I guess.

    Tried to make my own for years, always come back to Marie's, Litehouse or Marzettie's. IMO, look in the delis and specialty shops, and it is often better if it must be refridgerated.
