Olivia found this Bobbie Flay recipe and gave it a try with waffle fries.  I haven't tried it but it looks delicious.  Although it would be good with potato fries and potato chips, I wonder what it would be like over your favorite pasta, a baked potato, drizzled over a breaded chicken patty (kinda of like a country fried steak), or even served with chicken wings instead of blue cheese dressing!  If you make it and like it, put your imagination into overdrive and be creative with your use of this great sauce.

Blue Cheese Sauce:


2 1/4 cups whole milk  (I used 2% milk.)
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 small Spanish onion, finely chopped
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
Pinch cayenne pepper
1/2 pound crumbled blue cheese


Blue Cheese Sauce:
Place the milk in a small saucepan and bring to a simmer over low heat. Heat the butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add the onion and cook until soft. Stir in the flour and cook for 1 minute. Slowly whisk in the warm milk, and continue whisking until thickened. Season with salt and cayenne pepper. Continue cooking for 5 minutes, whisking occasionally. Remove from the heat and stir in the cheese. If the sauce is too thick, thin it with a little extra milk. Serve sauce warm with potato chips or French fries for dipping.
