The BEST Blue Cheese Dressing

The BEST Blue Cheese Dressing

I didn’t always love blue cheese but I am in love with this homemade blue cheese dressing! I was actually a bit disappointed when I found out that homemade blue cheese dressings always had a little sugar in them. Even my mom’s recipe! And if you think you are sugar free when eating a salad with blue cheese dressing at a restaurant… think again. Eating keto at a restaurant can be a hardship! That is why I wrote Keto Restaurant Favorites. 

This is also why I played around with making a blue cheese dressing and came up with a recipe that created the most flavorful best blue cheese dressing without any sugar!

And what makes a salad taste even better? Crunchy croutons! So I thought I would make a Facebook live video… even though I didn’t wash my hair or get out of my comfy Saturday clothes to show you a super easy and keto Parmesan crouton trick!

“Hello Craig.

I hope you can pass this email on to Maria? This is a small comment but a big deal for me. After listening to Maria’s seminar I have make some changes in my home and started the small steps to a happier healthier family. This morning for the first time ever my little girls brushed their teeth with on guard tooth paste instead of nasty colored sugar loaded kids crap toothpaste. I was so pleased and looking around for an adult high five. Also we have changed our hand soap and I am using a defused with lavender to create a calmer scent in the home. These are small baby steps and each month I get paid I have made a commitment to myself to buy an essential oil each month. Thank you to Maria and yourself to the ongoing commitment to make the lives of others happier and healthier. I have followed you guys for years now and eat healthier and cook your food a lot. I made double batch Lemon and poppyseed muffins this week and they rock.
A small step but a huge thanks.

Blessing to you and your beautiful family.” – Lucy

    My husband loves blue cheese dressing. When I saw this in your book, I had to make it! He loves it and we’ve made it several times. Thanks, Maria, for testing, creating and sharing.

  • Kathi says:

    How long will this last in the fridge?

    • Maria Emmerich says:

      I would say a week or even up to two weeks depending on freshness of ingredients.

  • ks says:

    I am not sure where to post this but – just learning here – I have always been a great sleeper but being in ketosis causes me to be wide awake for hours and then exhausted the next day. Should I add more fat? Where can I read about what to do? Thank you.

  • Perfect compliment for chicken wings and celery. I had no idea that restaurants and store bought bleu cheese had added sugar. Thanks for the recipe Maria!

  • Melissa says:

    I have all your other books on my kindle but I don’t see this one offered as an ebook. Will that be an option once it is released?

  • Melissa says:

    Oops! I see that’s an option now! Yay!

  • Holly says:

    I made this tonight and it was so easy and wonderful! Thanks!! I LOvE blue cheese!

  • Carol says:

    Hi Maria,
    My husband and I have been doing Keto since March and we started out with your keto cleanse. We feel fantastic and my husband has lost so much weight.
    I would like my daughter to start and i would like to know. Is Erythritol safe for pregnant woman. She is 34 weeks and I want her to try these wonderful recipes.

  • Kristy says:

    I’m not sure where to post this but I have a question re: ham-n-cheese mini quiches from the ketogenic cookbook. I just made the recipe for my son who is using the ketogenic diet to control seizures. the recipe calls for 24 eggs and the use of a mini muffin pan, but when i made the recipe it made more than double the 24 servings that the recipe indicates it will make. I want to be sure that I am tracking the nutrition information as precisely as possible for him. Has anyone else noticed this recipe making much more than the book indicates?

  • Sherri says:

    Which one of your books explains for the beginner on a ketogenic diet how to balance their carb intake so as not to go over what is needed to stay in the keto zone?
