Blue Cheese Drizzle

Recipe Notes

  • Yield: Makes 1 1/2 cups


  • 3 ounces smoked blue cheese or Roquefort or gorgonzola cheese
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise, preferably Hellmann’s
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • Freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • 2 to 4 tablespoons heavy cream or milk

Recipe Steps

1: If working at home, place the cheese in a food processor and grind to a coarse paste. (Alternatively, push the cheese through a sieve at the site of your tailgate.)

2: Add the mayonnaise, sour cream, and pepper and stir until smooth. Work in enough cream or milk to obtain a creamy pourable sauce.

3: Squirt it over the broccoli from a squeeze bottle or drizzle it over with a spoon. Or transfer it to a small bowl for dipping.
