Blue cheese sauce

I have been asked to make a Blue Cheese Sauce for a special occasion.

Is it just a matter of making a white sauce and adding a good quality Blue Cheese or are there other tips.

any thoughts/experiences appreciated

I am not sure if it is any help to you, but I often make a blue cheese and walnut sauce to serve on steak. All I do, is saute a handful of chopped walnuts for a few minutes, stirring so they do not burn, then add about 1/3 cup of cream and a handful of chopped blue cheese - and stir over a gentle heat until all the cheese is melted.

i just melt blue cheese over a very low heat stirring constantly and stir in milk until its the desired consistency - easy and very tasty

You could make a bechemel sauce first and then add the blue cheese. As it is a very strong cheese, only add a small amount at a time so it's not too overpowering. A lot of people don't like it as it's quite a strong cheese.

Bring a 300ml bottle of cream to a rolling simmer, reduce to 2/3rds and crumble in 100g blue cheese, more cheese if you like it stronger , stir till cheese melted. ( Add a clove of crushed garlic as cream is reducing if desired) Enjoy
