Buffalo Chicken Deviled Eggs
This week I learned a lot about eggs and I kind of wanted to continue the theme a little bit more for this week but influenced by football. I think I’ll try my hand at making buffalo chicken deviled eggs. It’s an idea that I found browsing… but I think I can make it better. A little time consuming, but they’re cheap to make and that’s what we’re all about!
- 6 eggs, boiled, cooled, peeled, and cut in half (learn to boil here)
- 1 tablespoon mayonnaise or ranch dressing or blue cheese dressing
- 2 tablespoons buffalo wing hot sauce
- 1/4 cup chicken, finely shredded
- 2 tablespoons celery, finely diced
- 1 tablespoon onion, finely diced
- 2 tablespoons blue cheese, finely crumbled
1. Scoop the yolks out of the egg halves.
2. Mash the egg yokes and mix with the mayonnaise, hot sauce, celery and onion.
3. Place a tablespoon of the mixture back into the holes left by the yolks in the eggs. Use a sandwich bag and cuff off the tip to put the mix back into the egg.
4. Next shred chicken in a bowl and coat the chicken in buffalo wing hot sauce (boil chicken in salted water).
5. Garnish your eggs with pieces of shredded chicken and blue cheese crumbles and parsley.
Jalapeno Popper Wontons
These wontons are a perfect football snack, a real crowd-pleaser, and I know I’ll make them over and over again.
- 1 package refrigerated square wonton wrappers
- 1 8-ounce package cream cheese, softened
- 3 jalapenos, seeds and ribs removed, finely chopped (add more if you like i did)
- 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
- Vegetable oil for frying
- Coarse salt
1. In a microwave safe bowl, soften your cream cheese for about 30 seconds then combine cream cheese, jalapenos, and cheddar cheese. Arrange wontons in a single layer on a baking sheet.
2. Add 1 teaspoon of the filling to the center of each wonton (don’t overfill them). Dip your fingers in a bowl of water and run your wet fingers around all edges of each wonton. Fold the wontons over the filling, pinching the edges to seal to make a triangle and removing any air bubbles.
3. Fry wontons in batches in hot oil until browned and cripsy (this will only take about 8-10 seconds). Drain on paper towels and sprinkle with coarse salt. Serve warm.
Sweet Chicken Bacon Wraps
If you can remember chicken, bacon, brown sugar and chili powder, you’ll have yourself a really easy recipe. Your guests will be trying to hold themselves back not to eat every last one of them!
