It’s time to break tradition. Besides, isn’t everyone sick of Great Aunt Ethel’s sweet potatoes slathered in marshmallows? We present to you: Blue Cheese Sweet Potatoes. Toss the wedged potatoes with a little oil, A&B American Style Pepper Sauce, honey, and sage before roasting. Ingredients you can feel good about, even if you’re only doing it so you can eat more pie.
Blue Cheese Sweet Potatoes
2-3 sweet potatoes, peeled and sliced into equal sized wedges
Halloween has come and gone. If you’re wondering what to do with the leftover pumpkins sitting around your mantle, read on. Don’t worry, these aren’t pumpkin spiced pumpkin seeds; we’re sure those exist elsewhere. These roasted pumpkin seeds made with our NYC Rooftop Pepper Sauce (seasonal, so it's like our version of the PSL) are insanely good and turned out so well they didn’t last long in the serving bowl.
Put the seeds in a colander and rinse under cold water, dry them
If you want to get into the nitty-gritty (and have a little extra time), we hear boiling the seeds before roasting is the way to go. The Manly Housekeeper conducted a four-way test and said, “[Pre-cooking in boiling water] makes the seeds much crunchier, leads to a more “roast-y” tasting seed, and seasons the seeds better.”
We're very excited to have worked with the Brooklyn Grange again this year to grow the chilies for our NYC Rooftop Pepper Sauce and are celebrating with a big introductory sale!

It's valid on our NYC Rooftop Pepper Sauce and on our new Terroir Tasting Set, which includes a bottle of the Original and the NYC Rooftop so you can see, taste, smell, feel and hear the difference the ground makes.
THE SUPER BOWL! It's here. It's in our backyard in NYC this year and the lead up to the game has been fantastic. We're really enjoying the back and forth (especially this little bit, which makes us want to add ducks to our recipe below)
Naturally, we believe every football party needs some serious cheese dip. And, we aren't microwaving cream cheese and mayo with frozen spinach and calling that serious.
We are taking two types of cheese. Bacon. Corn. Scallions. Garlic. Onion.
We are using a makeshift double boiler to protect our cheese from scorching (it's easy to do).
We are making some serious A&B American Style Cheese Dip.
We recommend you do the same.
Recipe: A&B American Style Cheese Dip Ingredients:
If you know someone who's stocking up to survive the Sriracha shortage, turn them onto a possible alternative with a bottle of A&B American Style Pepper Sauce. Concocted by childhood friends who "just wanted to eat good food and have a good time," this small batch creation combines a bright flavor, metered spice, and earthy sweetness. Add it to Ramen noodles, a burrito, or a breakfast omelet. And if your recipient is a real hot sauce fanatic, consider going with A&B's special gift set, which includes the original flavor and the special Brooklyn Grange edition pepper sauce.
The American Style way to enjoy the Super Bowl is with all kinds of innovative takes on classic food. We came across a great list of ideas from Thrillist. Then we noticed that our Pepper Sauce is a great addition to just about all of them.
Blue Cheese Dip Seriously, if you're gonna make (or order) wings, make this dip. But, make sure you use A&B American Style instead of Crystal's (not that we don't like Crystal's, use both!)
Sea Deviled Eggs Deviled Eggs are one of B's personal favorite uses for A&B American Style. This one has shrimp in it, which only increases the flavor benefit you'll get from adding Pepper Sauce.
Grilled Mac & Cheese Sandwiches This one looks like a guaranteed winner. Maybe a bit harder in execution than the ones above, but totally worth it. Use Pepper Sauce to cut some of the richness from the cheese and butter in this recipe.
Po' Boy Sandwich Cups You know how good A&B American Style is with oysters. So, add some oysters to your meal and really class up the joint before watching grown men in tights beat the pants off each other.
These recipes will hold up without the obscene amount of bacon Thrillist is promoting. Enjoy the Super Bowl and remember that watching sports is not the same as being active yourself. Both are a ton of fun, provided that you don't weigh a ton.

We realize we may have overwhelmed you with the pumpkin soup recipe yesterday. That's by far the most complicated recipe we've given you so far. We think you can handle it and we challenge you to challenge yourself.
Even though this recipe is simple, you should do it early because, like with most things, great taste takes time to develop.
Seriously, you want a couple of hours for the flavors to come together
Makes a great topping for turkey
It’s even better on day-after turkey & stuffing sandwiches
Note: We deliberately do not add any sugar to our Pepper Sauce recipe. We get our sweetness and great flavor from the natural produce we use. But, we don't use cranberries and those things have some serious tartness that the sugar tames a bit.
