If you haven’t been following our social media outlets, you may be wondering where all of the new recipes are! Don’t you worry, there will be plenty of new recipes coming next week. Why the reason for the lack of new recipes the last two weeks? It’s not because I’ve been slacking in the kitchen, actually quite the opposite!
I signed a contract two weeks ago for my first cookbook deal! Woo hoo! The cookbook is called Buffalo Style: Ditch the Wings, Keep the Sauce and is available now for pre-sale!!! I decided to go with a cookbook based around recipes including buffalo sauce because I’ve been known as the “Buffalo Sauce Queen” ever since I started food blogging! I love recipes with buffalo sauce, and you all seem to also 😉 So, Buffalo Style it was!
Yesterday I asked on Facebook which recipe you’d like to see from our upcoming cookbook. The response was overwhelmingly in favor of the Cheese Ball! You said it loud and clear and I listened, so here it is, the latest recipe from our upcoming cookbook Buffalo Style for your viewing, creating and devouring pleasure!
- 2 tbsp blue cheese dressing
- 1 tsp onion powder
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- 2 tbsp buffalo sauce
- 8 oz cream cheese (softened)
- 1 cup cheddar cheese (shredded)
- ½ cup pecans (chopped)
Mix the first six ingredients together in a medium mixing bowl.
Form the mixture into a ball then chop the pecans in a food processor and spread the crumbs onto a sheet of plastic wrap.
Roll the cheese ball in the chopped pecans.
Wrap the plastic wrap around the ball and place in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes.
Serve with vegetables or crackers for dipping.
♣ Vegetarian Option: This recipe is vegetarian.
♦ Gluten Free Option: This recipe is gluten-free, but always remember to check salad dressings & bottled sauces to make sure they’re gluten free!
