Best-tasting inexpensive bleu blue bloo cheese varieties?

GDSwamp Jan 28, 2009 09:33 AM

I'm making wings for the annual Super Bowl party where we eat and ignore the game. Can't abide bottled bleu cheese dressing so I'm making my own. Question is what are the best bleu cheeses for tastiness at a low per-pound price? I have to make a quart of dressing to meet the dipping demands of friends....

What are people's favorites?

    Danish blue cheese is reasonably priced and tasty.

      I love blue cheese--- the expensive and inexpensive. Definitely taste differences but for a blue cheese dip (hmmm...so good), quality Danish blue-including Amablue, Shaft, Rogue River...if you're not going French, etc. - then an Oregon-based blue is always good (Wisconsin also makes some decent ones).

      If you have a Trader Joe's near you, they have a reasonably priced Danish blue cheese.

        I always look for "Saga" cheese. It's mild, inexpensive and tastes like bleu cheese should.
