I like mine on the spicier side so adjust the hot sauce to your liking. You can always add more! Also, if you are not a fan of bleu cheese you can use feta or cheddar cheese.

  1. Delicious !! Made them tonight – next time I am going to make them cocktail size with blue cheese dressing to dip them in, YUMMY!!

  2. I made these last night for the True Detective finale, and they were awesome! I used ground turkey instead, and I doubled the onion and added more hot sauce; but they were delicious. I’ll definitely be making again :) Thanks for the recipe
