Buffalo Chicken Banana Peppers

I have a great recipe for you.  I just bought a basket of sweet banana peppers at Van Pelt’s Farm Market, 1176 Fairfield School Rd.,  Columbiana, Ohio 44408.  Their phone number is 330.482.0435.   When I saw this recipe I knew it was the perfect way to use some of my peppers.  I did tweak the original recipe.  I hope you enjoy these as much as we did.

Buffalo Wing Chicken Dip

This is such a great recipe.  This is super easy to make if you have leftover baked chicken.  It doesn’t take many ingredients and you can serve it with celery sticks and carrot sticks for a healthy Paleo snack.

Buffalo Wing Chicken Dip

2 cups of cooked shredded chicken
8 ounces of Cream Cheese (softened)
8 ounces of Sour Cream
6 to 8 ounces of hot sauce (available at your local meat market)
1 1/2 to 2 cups of shredded Cheddar Cheese (available at your local butcher shop)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Put the Cream Cheese in a bowl and use a fork to mash it up. Add the Sour Cream, Hot Sauce and 1 to 1 1/2 cups of the shredded Cheddar Cheese to the mashed Cream Cheese. Mix well. Pour into a greased 9 X 9 glass baking dish. Put the remaining 1/2 cup of shredded cheese on top of the mixture. Bake for 20 minutes. You can serve with Tortilla chips, Fritos, as well as the celery sticks and carrot sticks I mentioned earlier.

Until next time…From our Butcher Block to your Table.

Super Wings

Superbowl is Sunday. Maybe you have forgotten or maybe you are caught up in the frenzy–either way, good eats are a necessary part of the ritual. Wings are always a popular choice, and I am going to show you how to cook them so you are relaxed and able to enjoy the party. Mauri-1

Super Wings

5 pounds of whole wings (cut off the tips and discard, cut the remainder into 2 pieces) or 5 pounds of Party Wings available at your local butcher
1 to 2 bottles of hot sauce (Walnut Creek brand or Moore’s Wing Sauce)
8 to 12 ounces of Runion’s Mix (Available at your local meat market)
8 Tablespoons of butter

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Take wings and moisten with hot sauce. Shake off excess moisture. Add Runion’s Mix to a clean gallon Ziplock bag. Add several moistened wings at a time and shake in the bag to coat the wings. Put the dusted wings on a paper towel and continue until all of the wings are coated. If the bag gets messy, you may have to start over with a clean bag and additional Runion’s Mix.

Take 2 baking sheets with a one inch lip on them. cut up butter into tablespoon size and put 4 tablespoons on each baking sheet. Put the baking sheets in the preheated oven and allow the butter to melt. Carefully pull out the oven racks and place the prepared wings on the sizzling butter. Fill both pans. Cook for 25 minutes, turn and cook for an additional 20 minutes.wings

Your wings will be crispy and delicious and best of all, no one has to stand over the stove frying wings to appease your hungry crowd.

For a dipping sauce, take hot sauce or wing sauce, add butter and heat in the microwave for 45 seconds. This will make a rich sauce to compliment your wings.
