This recipe. You guys. You are sooooo welcome. There is little more I love in this world than the flavors of buffalo chicken, celery and blue cheese. The problem is that I might fall over if I ate chicken wings every day of my life. Probably NOT the healthiest thing for a person to consume on a daily basis. In recognition of Memorial Day being this upcoming weekend, I thought this recipe was 100% necessary to publish. It combines everything that’s perfect in a buffalo wing, minus the wing. It’s the perfect spin on a classic picnic food, and it’s simple too! The sauce is a mixture of greek yogurt, Neufchâtel cheese and hot sauce. I know, right? Absolute perfection. I hope everyone is super excited for the long weekend ahead. Do you guys have anything exciting going on? We are having a little beer tasting get together this Friday night, but plan on taking it easy for the rest of the weekend. I’m not upset about this. I’m actually looking quite forward to it!
Beer: Left Coast Brewing’s Hop Juice
Brewed By: Left Coast Brewing
Style: Imperial / Double IPA
Description: I had Left Coast Brewing’s Hop Juice for the first time a couple of days ago. Zach has always raved about it, and this is the first time we actually saw it gracing the shelves of our local beer store. If you like hoppy, then you will absolutely adore this beer. It is quite “literally” hops in a bottle. It is DELICIOUS. As many of you I’m sure already know, hoppiness goes really well with spiciness, and because these chicken dogs are quite spicy, the two were the perfect match. If you’ve never had the chance to try this beer, please do. You will not regret it!
