- 1.75 g. Brown Sugar
- 3 g. Kosher Salt
- 1 g. Dry, Crushed Mustard
- 5 Tbsp. Crumbled Blue Cheese
- 1 Tsp. Crushed Garlic

- 2 Tbsp. Distilled White Vinegar
Recipe Instructions: Simply get out your bowl, whisk, measuring cups and spoon, and scale and mix in the ingredients! I recommend mixing your metric ingredients first, (like the kosher salt) first. This will get the math out of the way so you can use your measuring cups and spoons for the easy part! Once all of your ingredients are in the bowl, whisk to combine and taste for flavor! I wouldn't keep this in the fridge any more than a week for best freshness. Serve with some epic fried chicken wings and enjoy!
I’m a glutton when it comes to a deliciously creamy blue cheese dressing.
But for me the store bought stuff never seemed to scratch the itch that incredibly fresh restaurant quality blue cheese dressing could.
However, no one wants to buy a whole meal just to eat some blue cheese dip! That’s why I sought out how to make the restaurant quality stuff at home!
I learned this recipe from a buddy who worked at a restaurant named Paulette’s Restaurant which resides on Mud Island in Memphis, Tennessee.
It overlooks the mighty Mississippi River and has been a staple in the Memphis community for many years, and is still a popular place today!
Well, my friend shared with me their proprietary blue cheese dressing recipe, straight from the chef’s prep station!
After parsing out the quantities (they make this stuff by the gallon at Paulette’s, which is too much for me!) I realized I had something special on hand.
Blue Cheese Dressing Tools
This is one of the simplest recipes to make, since it doesn’t require any specialty tools in order to make it!
All you need is a mixing bowl, a whisk, and some measuring spoons if you want to be okay with your measurements.
However, if you want to be precise and make this recipe correctly, you’ll want to invest in a kitchen scale for measuring food quantities.
I picked one up some years ago and they’re honestly incredibly useful. I use mine every single time I cook, since it measures volume and weight in both metric and imperial units!
To keep it easy, you’ll need the following tools:
Blue Cheese Dressing Ingredients
While the ingredient list for this recipe is multifarious, the ingredients come together really nicely and I recommend getting fresh when you can.
You could buy lemon juice from a bottle, but you’ll honestly be missing out on a ton of the vibrant and incredible flavors this blue cheese dressing has to offer.
That’s why I’ll always push you to buy fresh when you can.
Obviously you are the one in control of your budget so make the decisions you need to make that suit your needs, but if you want the best you may have to spend a little more on ingredients.
Believe me, my friend literally sat there eating this with a spoon, it’s so good. So trust me on this, buy fresh!
Blue Cheese Dressing Measurements
Look, I got this recipe from a waiter at a famous restaurant in Memphis where they make this stuff by the actual gallon.
So, I had to sit there and do some math in order to make a reasonable replica of this stuff.
That’s the value you get out of this!
If you want to make this the right way, you really need to invest in a kitchen scale so you can weigh out the ingredients correctly.
There really isn’t a replacement since measuring spoons don’t really capture the accuracy that you want for this recipe.
The metric system is simply better than the imperial system and has more graduated levels to be more precise!
I do apologize, however, because I found it difficult to keep this recipe entirely metric or imperial.
I had to switch back and forth, so please do try your best and use good judgement! If you need to, use Google to swap between metric and imperial for the best results.
Blue Cheese Dressing Uses
Regarding the purpose of this blog, the uses for this blue cheese dressing will mostly be for dipping some crackly fried chicken wings into!
However, you can also use blue cheese for any of the following foods:
- Put it onto a salad
- Use it for other fried foods such as fried fish or French fries
- Use it as a filling of blue cheese balls.
Really the options are endless if you don’t mind getting a little bit creative!
In conclusion you really ought to make this blue cheese if you want to impress everyone who eats it.
My friends love when I make this, and you will too.
