Patter Fam Sauces

Italian Nachos Video


1 pkg. egg roll wrappers

1 pound Italian sausage

3 oz. pepperoni slices

½ lb. mozzarella cheese

¼ cup banana pepper slices

1 qt. canola oil for frying

Kosher salt

Patter Fam Arrabiata Sauce


Heat oil to 350 degrees.

Cut egg roll wrappers into 4 long strips then cut strips in half to create ½” x 2” pieces. Keep a moist towel over wrappers to keep them from drying out.

Break Italian Sausage into small chunks and brown in a skillet over medium high heat until done. Remove sausage from skillet with a slotted spoon to keep most of the excess grease in the skillet and place in a small bowl.

When the oil reaches 350 degrees carefully drop chips one at a time into the oil. They fry very quickly, so you will only be able to do 6-10 at a time. Let them fry on one side for about 15 seconds then flip over and fry for about another 15 seconds until golden brown. With a spider or slotted spoon quickly remove chips to a paper towel to drain. Lightly season with kosher salt as soon as they come out. Continue the process until all the chips are fried.

Turn the oven broiler on high and set the oven rack in the middle of the oven. Spread the chips evenly on a large cookie sheet. Sprinkle the sausage mixture evenly over the chips. Spread the pepperoni and banana peppers over the chips. Generously spread the cheese over the whole mixture and place under the broiler until the cheese begins to brown. Remove and serve on the cookie sheet with Patter Fam Arrabiata Sauce for dipping.

Buffalo Chicken Wings w/ homemade blue cheese dressing


24 Chicken Wings
2 – 5 oz. bottles of Patter Fam's Holy Cow, Holy Habby or Holy Ghost Revival
3 T salted butter


Oven method: Preheat oven to 425 degrees.  Place thawed wings on a rack in a roasting pan, lightly salt with Kosher salt.  Bake in the over for 30 minutes then turn the wings over and bake another 20-30 minutes until golden brown.  In the final 10 minutes of baking, simmer 2 bottles of Patter Fam Holy Cow Hot Sauce with butter whisking in the butter as it melts.

Remove from oven and toss in a bowl with sauce. Serve w/ celery and homemade blue cheese (recipe  below)

Grill method: Grill lightly salted and thawed wings over a medium high heat grill – turning often enough to prevent burning of skin.  Cook for 30-40 minutes or until the wings are cooked through and juicy. 

Deep Fry method: Heat oil to 350 degrees.  Peanut oil is best, but Canola or Vegetable Oil can also be used.  Be sure and only put oil up to half the depth of your pot or fryer as the wings will cause the oil level to rise rapidly.  Pat the thawed wings dry with a paper towel.  Carefully lower the wings into the oil with a basket or spider scoop to prevent splashing hot oil on your hands.  Deep fry for about 10 minutes then remove to a paper towel to drain. 

Blue Cheese Dressing


½ cup crumbled blue cheese
4 T sour cream
4 T mayonnaise
½ cup buttermilk
2 T white wine vinegar
2 T minced white onion
Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste


Whisk blue cheese, sour cream and mayonnaise in a medium sized bowl.  Stir in the buttermilk, vinegar and onions.  Salt and pepper to taste.

Holy Cow Hot Dog


2 pkg (16-20) all beef hot dogs
2 pkg hot dog buns
1 lb. lean ground beef
1 yellow onion minced
1 clove garlic minced
1 T unsalted butter
1 bottle Patter Fam's Holy Cow Sauce


Sauté onion and garlic in 1 T butter until onions are translucent (3-5 minutes).  Add the ground beef and brown.  Stir in 1 bottle of Patter Fam Holy Cow Hot Sauce.  Grill the hot dogs to your liking and add the Holy Cow Hot Dog Sauce over the dog for a kicked up dog!

In place of the Holy Cow Hot Sauce you can also use 5 oz. of Patter Fam Jamaican Jerk Sauce for something really different.

Holy Cow Chili with Avocado Relish and Sour Cream


2 pounds flank steak cut in ½” cubes
1 large onion sliced thin
1 T garlic minced
3 T olive oil
3 T unsalted butter
¼ cup flour
1 small can tomato paste
3 small cans black beans drained and rinsed
3 large cans kidney beans drained and rinsed
1 ½ quarts cold water
1 T cumin
1 T dried cilantro
Salt to taste
1 – 5 oz. bottle Patter Fam's Holy Cow Hot Sauce
2 cups strong black coffee
Sour cream


In a 2 ½ quart pot over medium high heat melt 3 T of unsalted butter with 3 T olive oil .  When oil and butter are hot add the cut up flank steak cubes to the pot and begin to brown.  Add the thinly sliced onion after about 2 minutes.  Begin to sauté and cook the onion.  When they begin to get soft add 1 T minced garlic.  Sauté until onions are translucent and the garlic is lightly browned.  Sprinkle the mixture with the flour and stir until the flour is cooked through.  Add all the remaining ingredients and stir to combine.  Bring to a boil, stirring occasionally.  Once a boil is achieved reduce heat to a simmer and cook for 1-3 hours.  The longer you can let it cook the more the flavors get happy.

Garnish with Avocado Relish (below) and sour cream.  Serve the chili in a large bowl and garnish with 2 T of the Avocado relish.  Place 1 tsp. of sour cream on top of the relish.

This dish is great with Mango Inferno Cornbread Stuffed Peppers on the side!

Avocado Relish


2 ripe Haas Avocados
½ large red onion
1 -2 limes
¼ cup fresh chopped cilantro
Kosher salt


Split the avocados in half with a sharp knife and twist slightly to separate.  The pit will remain in one of the half avocados.  Carefully chop the knife into the pit and give it a slight twist.  The pit should easily come out.  Insert a large dining spoon between the skin of the avocado and the flesh and slide it down and around the flesh to dislodge it from the skin.  Once removed from the skin, place the flesh cut side down so it lies flat on the cutting surface.  Slice completely through side to side so that you end up with ¼” slices stacked on top of one another.  Now cut down in both directions to get ¼” cubes.  Place the avocado in a medium mixing bowl.

Finely dice the red onion and place it in the mixing bowl.  Chop the cilantro and place it in the bowl.  Squeeze the juice from one lime (2 if they are small) over the entire mixture.  Salt to taste.
