Peanut Butter and Jelly Wings

Reprinted with permission from Hardcore Carnivore by Jess Pryles, Agate Surrey, 2018

"It sounds a little strange but, trust me, these flavors will make sense to your taste buds. The peanut butter creates a rich, thick coating while the jelly helps the wings caramelize on the grill. They are an easy way to feed a large crowd, too."

Jess Pryles
Serves: 4–6


2 pounds chicken wings

kosher salt

4 tablespoons strawberry jelly

2 tablespoons smooth peanut butter

1 teaspoon sriracha

2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce

2 tablespoons light brown sugar

2 teaspoons paprika

2 tablespoons chopped peanuts

Put the chicken wings in a large, resealable plastic bag and season well with salt.

In a bowl, mix together the jelly and peanut butter. Add the sriracha, Worcestershire sauce, brown sugar and paprika, and mix thoroughly. Pour the marinade into the bag, and massage the bag gently to distribute the marinade over all the chicken wings. Place the bag in the fridge to marinate for at least 2 hours, or preferably overnight.

Heat a grill to medium. Place the wings on the grill and cook, turning them every 2–3 minutes. This should allow the color to develop without burning before the chicken is cooked all the way through. Continue to turn the wings until they are nicely browned with charred areas.

Place on a tray to cool slightly. Sprinkle with chopped peanuts for a textural garnish.

Know your cuts: It’s better to use wings that have been jointed into wingettes and drumettes. A whole, three-joint wing will take longer to cook, and the delicate wing tips burn very easily.

Bacon Blue Cheese Dogs

Recipe courtesy of Chef David Burke

"Serve these tasty little puppies for a unique grilled appetizer at your next tailgate!"

Makes: approximately 32 dogs


The Dogs:

1 pound Kobe beef cocktail franks (any high-quality cocktail frank will do)

1 pound sliced bacon

1 cup blue cheese

1 sheet of puff pastry

2 tablespoons jalapeño peppers, minced

Eggs, for egg wash


The BBQ Sauce:

1 cup brown sugar

1 cup honey

2 cups red wine vinegar

1 teaspoon cumin

1 teaspoon coriander seed

1 teaspoon celery seed

1 teaspoon chili powder

2 teaspoons paprika

1/2 cup soy sauce

1 cup Samuel Adams Boston Lager (approximately 3/4 of a bottle)

32 ounces ketchup (a little more than two 12-ounce bottles)

12 ounces chili sauce

Juice and zest of 1/2 lemon

Juice and zest of 1/2 orange

1/2 bunch cilantro

Salt and pepper, to taste

For the Bacon Blue Cheese Dogs: On a baking tray, cook the bacon at 375°F for about 12 minutes, until slightly brown but still pliable. Remove from oven, and allow to cool.

Before rolling the cocktail franks in puff pastry, mash together the blue cheese and minced jalapeño peppers. Crumble this mixture onto the puff pastry. Cut the puff pastry into 1 1/2-inch-wide strips, wide enough to roll a cocktail frank and leave a 1/2-inch overlap per frank, and place a piece of cooled bacon on top. Begin rolling the first Pig in a Blanket, leaving enough puff pastry to fold over and seal the cocktail frank. Brush the ends of the puff pastry strip with egg wash to seal over the cocktail frank. Continue rolling the cocktail franks in the puff pastry, cutting and sealing as you go. Place the rolled Pigs in a Blanket, seam-side down, on a parchment-lined sheet tray, and brush with egg wash. Bake at 375°F for 15 minutes, or until golden brown.

For the Samuel Adams Boston Lager BBQ Sauce: In a heavy-bottomed pot, toast all of the dry spices (cumin, coriander seed, celery seed, chili powder, paprika) over medium-low heat. Once the spices are toasted (you’ll begin to smell their aroma), add the honey and brown sugar, and cook until it begins to caramelize. Once the mixture begins to caramelize, add the red wine vinegar, ketchup, soy sauce, chili sauce, Samuel Adams Boston Lager, lemon juice and zest and orange juice and zest, and reduce until the mixture thickens. Season the mixture with salt, pepper and cilantro. Let it stand for two hours, and then strain through a fine-mesh, conical sieve. Place in a serving bowl, and serve room temperature to warm as a dipping sauce for the Bacon Blue Cheese Dogs.

Photo and recipe courtesy of Woodbridge by Robert Mondavi

"Serve these up at your next party on the patio or parking lot!"

Makes: 4 to 6 appetizer servings


3 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 large onion, sliced into half rings
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1 tablespoon Woodbridge by Robert Mondavi Cabernet Sauvignon
8 ounces cream cheese, room temperature
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 cup plain yogurt
2 tablespoons chives, chopped

Melt butter over medium-low heat, and then add onions, salt, pepper and nutmeg. Slowly caramelize the onions by letting them sit for about 3 minutes and then stirring. Do not allow the onions to burn. If the pan gets too dry, add a small amount of water.

When the onions are a rich brown color (about 30 minutes), add the Woodbridge by Robert Mondavi Cabernet Sauvignon, and cook for another 3 minutes or until the wine is completely absorbed. Remove from heat.

Add cream cheese, sour cream and yogurt to the bowl of an electric mixer, and beat until smooth on medium-low speed. Turn the mixer down to the lowest speed, and add the onions. Add seasonings to taste.

Garnish with chives, and serve at room temperature.

*Entertaining Tip: Make dip up to two days in advance, reserving a tablespoon or so of the caramelized onions for garnish. Remove from the refrigerator 30 minutes before serving to bring to room temperature. Pair with Woodbridge by Robert Mondavi Cabernet Sauvignon.
