Week three of our Top 5 "How Do You Honey" Recipe contest submissions is ready to spice up your skillet!
It's no secret that honey and cheese are a beautiful marriage of flavor; Dustin McKinnis has decided to heat the wedded bliss up with his recipe for Smoked Cream Cheese with Datil Sting.
McKinnis loves a good sweet heat, and he also loves a smoker and a cast-iron skillet. The preparation and attention on this one take cheese to a whole new level of creamy, cheesy goodness!
8oz block of Philadelphia Cream Cheese
Seasoning salt (McKinnis recommends Meat Church brand seasonings)
Datil Sting Hot Honey
Cracker (for serving)
Cherry pellets (for the smoker)
Take a block of Philadelphia Cream Cheese and season all sides with your favorite all-purpose seasoning (McKinnis used Meat Church).
Place in a cast-iron skillet!
On a smoker (running Cherry pellets), smoke for about 2 hours.
Then pull it off, drizzle Datil Sting Hot Honey on, and serve with crackers!
McKinnis says this is, "Such a great appetizer! Sweet with a little heat! Try it soon!" Check back next week for another of our Top 5 "How Do You Honey" recipes!
