leftover blue cheese sauce from wings!

kazhound Jun 13, 2012 04:52 PM

we were a little overzealous yesterday, and ordered too many wings, along with extra hot sauce and blue cheese for dipping. We're currently making a chili with the leftover wing meat, and we threw most of the leftover extra sauce in there too (with a dash of tequila), and it's all coming together quite nicely. But what to do with the little containers of blue cheese? I've already had my fill of carrots with blue cheese. And I don't want to use it as a salad dressing...

      +1. It plays wonderfully with beef.

      use it as a dressing on sandwiches
      as hotoynoodle said over steaks
      you can put a dollop of it on the bowls of chili (kinda like you would sour cream or crema)??
      umm.... as a baked potato topping with bacon and scallions?

        Cobb salad omelet? Avocado, bacon, tomato, green onion, (the omelet is in place of hard-boiled egg), blue cheese dressing either mixed in with the ingredients or drizzled on top.

          I had a new burger from the menu of Red Robin the other day that had the seasonings of buffalo wings. Blue cheese, bullalo wing hot sauce, etc. It was called the Buzzalo Style Tavern Double burger.

            As a spread on an unsalted cracker with a dollop of raspberry jam.

              Along the same lines as Kubasd....potato salad. (Technically still being used as a "salad dressing" in this case!)

                I recently bought a blue cheese dip that I didn't care for much. I mixed it with low-fat cream cheese and some Stonewall Farms Roasted Garlic and Onion Jam, making it into a thicker spread that I liked on celery and crackers. If I hadn't had that jam, I'd have caramelized some shallots, or garlic and onion, and maybe added a spot of fig jam or fig paste.

                    For a super decadent snack/side ... make phyllo purses filled with the dip or puff pastry pockets.

                      We love garlic bread that is topped with bleu or gorgonzola and broiled a bit. Decadent!

                        Brown some pork chops in butter, cook till done enough, take them out of the pan and stir in the blue cheese sauce, cooking over low heat to incorporate with the pork drippings. Pour over the chops and serve with rice or pasta.

                          blue cheese cole slaw

                            You could probably incorporate it into a cheese sauce for macaroni quatro formaggio.

                              Be nice over a crisp wedge of iceburg, perhaps with a bit of crumbled bacon but not necessarily.
