Recipes with Bleu Cheese Dressing

Grilled steak recipe with bleu cheese dressing

I love the taste of Blue Cheese Dressing. That is why I made a couple of simple recipes with bleu cheese dressing that will liven up any party. In our home, we have a vegetarian, and someone who is gluten-free, so I wanted to make sure that they feel welcome at our party. I used the Naturally Fresh® Bleu Cheese Dressing that I found in the refrigerated section of my Harris Teeter’s. This bleu cheese dressing tastes so amazing. It contains buttermilk and aged bleu cheese chunks. This is the bleu cheese dressing you would make if you could. It is creamy and not too strong. It is perfectly blended to elevate the recipe I made.

Gluten Free Dressing

Use Gluten Free Dressing rather than stuffing this year!


Enjoy gluten free dressing with your Thanksgiving meal.

Dressing tends to have less bread in the dish and more vegetables thus making it easier to have less gluten right from the beginning of the recipe!  Even if you are not cooking gluten free this recipe is the perfect one to use imperfect cornbread! You may note in the picture there was an odd crack in my cornbread!?

Gluten Free Dressing

Gluten Free Dressing


  • 1 recipe yellow cornbread *
  • 1-2 onions, chopped
  • 1 cup celery, chopped
  • 1/2 pound mild or hot sausage
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 teaspoon thyme (do NOT omit)
  • 2 eggs


  1. Mix cornbread, onions, celery, and sausage. Add eggs. You will probably have to finish mixing with your hands. Due to the variety of gluten free cornbread and breads the moisture in this recipe will have to be checked at this stage. The mixture should be wet enough that the mix can hold together in a ball but not so wet that it sticks to your hands. If too dry can add milk or chicken broth. If too moist add pieces of stale gluten free bread or toast. Bake in ungreased 8x8 pan 1 hour at 350. Freezes very well.

*Many individuals with celiacs or gluten intolerance have concerns with other grains as well, be sure that your bread meets the dietary needs of the individuals you are serving. As  with all allergies, check the ingredients of each product before using.  We have found the same brand, same packaging to be different at times.

Our gluten free Thanksgiving tips suggested using dressing rather than stuffing.  Combine this recipe with ground venison sausage and you have a delicious gluten free dressing side!
