Celebrate New Years with this Buffalo Wings Flatbread Appetizer!

I love a New Years Eve Party! Well, I love just about any reason for a party, but....New Years Eve is a great reason, and if you are looking for a simple, but yummy, appetizer for your New Years festivities, this Buffalo Wings Flatbread is for you! One of the reasons I love this appetizer is because I used actual leftover buffalo chicken wings to create this recipe. My husband and I went to TGI Fridays to have some lunch. We tried some appetizers, one of which was a flatbread. We also ordered chicken wings, some other yummy food, and had a really fun time. As usual, our eyes were bigger than our stomachs, and we ended up bringing home a bunch of chicken wings. After 2 days, the wings were still in the fridge, and I wanted to do something with them. I remembered that I had some flatbread I had bought at the grocery. Then, I thought about the flatbread we had at lunch, and I thought, what if I do this and add this, and I ended up with this flatbread, kinda inspired by TGI Fridays!

Buffalo Wings Flatbread

1 Flatbread
4 oz. Cream Cheese-softened
1 1/2 teaspoon Franks Red Hot Wing Sauce
7 cooked Buffalo Wings
2 stalks Scallions
1 Roma Tomato
Ranch Dressing
Blue Cheese Crumbles

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
I bought these at the grocery store.
They were sitting on shelves in front of the deli case.
The first thing to do is de-bone the chicken wings. I tried
to use a little of the skin, for the great flavor,
 but I pulled out any really fatty pieces. 
Chop your scallions also.
Chop your tomatoes. 
It is best to make them bite size or smaller.
Bake your flatbread, with nothing on it, for 10 minutes in the oven.

While it is cooking, mix your softened cream cheese and 
the wing sauce together. Add more or less to your liking.
Spread the cream cheese mixture over the flatbread.
Top the spread with chicken, scallions and tomatoes.
Bake in the oven for 10 -15 minutes
 Drizzle with ranch dressing, or.......
add some blue cheese crumbles. Yum!!
I cut my flatbread like a pizza slice, but you could do squares
and serve a lot more guests!

Thank you for joining me today!

Have a Happy, Happy New Year !
See you in 2014!!

Chicken Wings!

Nothing says football like chicken wings! We made a few for our football feast party, and we served them with BBQ sauce, Hot Sauce(Medium), Homemade Ranch, and Homemade Blue Cheese. One good thing about serving wings at your football get together?  Everyone loves them!
Fried Chicken Wings
Chicken Wings
Hot Sauce
BBQ Sauce
Put the wings in a deep fryer set at 350 degrees. You
can also bake these in an oven at 400 degrees for 
25-35 minutes if you would rather.
While the wings are frying, cut up the celery and carrots.
 Trim out the celery by cutting off the leaves and the top. 
Slice thick celery down the middle, then slice those slices
in half length wise. 
 It always looks nice if you can make all
the celery pieces as close to the same length as possible.
 Peel the carrots, cut them down the center lengthwise,
then slice into pieces the same length as the celery.
 Time to check on your wings. Check on the temperature 
of the wings. They should be cooked until 165 degrees.
Pull them out and let them drain. 
While they are draining, get your sides all together.
To make your hot sauce a little less hot, melt some butter, 
and add the butter to your hot sauce. Mix together.
Add some BBQ sauce to a bowl, and heat if you want.
Place both sauces, and both dips, along with the
vegetables near your platter of chicken.
 Homemade Ranch Dip
1 cup Mayo
1/2 cup Sour Cream
1 teaspoon Garlic Powder
1 teaspoon Dill Weed
1/4 cup Buttermilk
1 tablespoon Dried Parsley
1 teaspoon Onion Powder
Lets make our Ranch Dip first. We need to let both 
dips sit in the fridge for a few hours before serving them.
Mix together the mayo and the sour cream.
Add the garlic powder, dill weed, buttermilk, parsley,
and onion powder. Mix together until well blended.
Refrigerate for at least 2 hours before serving.
 Blue Cheese Dip
1 1/2 cups Mayo
1 cup Sour Cream
2 teaspoons Worcestershire Sauce
1 teaspoon Dry Mustard
1 teaspoon Black Pepper
1 teaspoon Garlic Powder
6 ounces Blue Cheese, crumbled
Mix all or the ingredients together.
Add the blue cheese. Mix well. 
Refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
Thanks for joining me today!

Join me tomorrow when we make our 
stuffed meatballs!

Hope to see you then!!
