Crisp brussels sprouts are tossed in a rich buffalo sauce. These are as addictive as chicken wings and such a fun twist on a classic! These were inspired by Highland Kitchen’s version. If you make it to the Somerville hotspot, pair these with their homemade ginger beer, yum!
Blue Cheese Dip Ingredients:
- 1 pound brussels sprouts, trimmed and cut into halves
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
- 2 tablespoons butter, melted
- 1 tablespoon Franks Red Hot
For the dip:
- 1 cup Greek yogurt
- 1/4 cup crumbled blue cheese (or goat cheese, if preferred)
- 2 tablespoons finely grated red onion
- 2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh cilantro
- Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
Blue Cheese Dip Directions:
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- In a bowl, combine the brussels sprouts, olive oil, salt and pepper, until brussels sprouts are evenly coated.
- Spread Brussels sprouts in a single layer on a baking sheet.
- Bake at 350 for 25 minutes, or until brussels sprouts are tender and beginning to brown and crisp, tossing halfway as needed for even cooking.
- In the meantime, make the dip: combine the yogurt, blue cheese, red onion, cilantro, and salt and pepper to taste in a small bowl.
- Refrigerate at least 30 minutes before serving to allow the flavors to combine.
- When the brussels are pulled from the oven, combine the melted butter and hot sauce and toss with the warm Brussels sprouts until evenly coated.
- Serve with the blue cheese dip on the side.
