Buffalo Wings with Blue Cheese Coleslaw

Sorry guys, we know it's been a while since our last post. Bev and I have been pretty tied up with work and all for the last few weeks. Anyway, we're back again, and here is the first of a few backlogged entries to come.

This is a recipe for buffalo wings from Bev's stack of recipe cuttings. I matched these wings with a recipe for blue cheese cloeslaw that I chanced upon at, one of my favourite foodie sites. And as funky as it sounds (blue cheese coleslaw), it actually makes perfect sense, seeing that buffalo wings are typically served with crunchy vegetables and a blue cheese sauce!

Just keep in mind, if you were to use the Italian Gorgonzola for the blue cheese, be sure to use Gorgonzola Picante (a sharp gorgonzola) instead of Gorgonzola Dolce (a milder, sweeter gorgonzola), as there will be huge variances in the results. Also, instead of undertaking the labour intensive task of shaving my own vegetables for the slaw, I simply popped open a bag of ready shaved coleslaw vegetables from the supermarket. Ah, the conveniences of modern day grocery shopping!

Toss wings with all of the specified ingredients. Marinate for at least one hour. Grill in a hot oven, at 210 degrees celcius, for 10 minutes on each side, basting frequently with the left over marinade.

My husband will love this; and he shall have it. I'll tell myself its a little bit healthy because of the presence of cabbage. I found you on the foodie blogroll, and have enjoyed poking around on your blog - the sausages and beans look good, too, but they'll have to wait for our winter.

Hi Annie! You know, there are times when flogging can take a toll, and at times I do ask myself who's actually reading, who actually gives two hoots? Well, nice shout-outs like yours really give us the motivation to stay on track and keep on trucking! Kudos to you! Yeah, and do give those dishes a go, and let me know what your husband thinks!
