3 Star...Blue Cheese Dressing Recipe : Alton Brown : Food Network. Great base recipe, creamy and rich. The quality of the cheese is crucial and can take it to 4 or 5 stars. I also added 1/2 tsp each onion powder, garlic powder and lemon juice that I saw in a Thomas Keller recipe and it vastly improved the taste.
Alton Brown recipes are always a good idea, because the Food Network chef knows a thing or two (million) about food. The Cutthroat Kitchen host is known for treating cooking like science (nitrus oxide cold brew, anyone?), and his vast culinary knowledge makes his recipes that much more desirable. These are 23 standout recipes either adapted from or directly from the chef, from basic guacamole to next-level crème brulée.
Edamame Dip from Alton Brown.... One review said, "Very nice, lower fat alternative to guacamole and much lower in carbs than hummus, which is helpful for diabetic noshers. Making low carb apps for a dinner party usually means cheese, eggs,or meat, but often they are quite high in fat. This recipe bridges the eating requirements of many more people with dietary issues."
