Indulge yourself in the robust flavours of this homemade sauce that's nothing short of a profit-maker in the kitchen. Far from mundane, this sauce brings a unique twist to your menu, so don't be coy about trying it.
Choosing the Right Ingredients
Blue Cheese: When choosing blue cheese, opt for a British Stilton. It's readily available and supports British cheesemakers.
Streaky Bacon: We recommend ready-to-go streaky bacon, especially if you don't cook bacon often. Look for British-sourced bacon to minimise food miles.
Black Pepper: Always crack the black pepper at the last moment to retain its flavour at its best.
What You Will Need:
|Streaky Smoked Bacon||100g|
|Freshly Cracked Pepper||1 Tablespoon|
1. In a bowl, add all the ingredients.
2. Use an immersion blender to combine until smooth, around 30 seconds to 1 minute. (Alternatively, add the ingredients to a food processor and purée until smooth.)
Tip: For an extra flavour boost, consider adding slowly roasted or confit garlic to this sauce. The rich, mellow taste of the garlic will elevate the recipe to a whole new level.
This sauce is incredibly easy to prepare, taking little to no time, and it will keep well for up to five days in the fridge.
If this sauce seems a bit adventurous for your taste, don't fret. You can always explore other options, like our tartar sauce recipe or the delectable roasted garlic mayonnaise. Either way, this punchy bacon & blue cheese sauce will leave a lasting impression on your customers!
