Crunchy Kettle Chips drizzled with truffle oil, sweet balsamic glaze and topped with crumbled blue cheese! Perfect with a cold beer, wine or mixed drinks!
My sister, June, and I share a love for the quaint little town of Salado, Texas. Whenever she comes to visit, we make our little trek to Salado, where we love to visit Adelea’s on Main to have lunch. We indulge in all sorts of good food from their menu, including our favorite appetizer of Balsamic Kettle Chips with Blue Cheese and Truffle Oil. Sadly, Adelea’s is no longer in business – boo! So, I decided to recreate these addictive chips so we can enjoy them whenever we want.
Blue cheese and gorgonzola cheese can be hard to pick out for eating as a topping or on a cheeseboard. My favorite for this recipe is Sartori Dolcina Gorgonzola. It can be found in the deli or cheese section of most grocery stores. I like it because it’s milder than many other and very creamy and pleasant tasting.
Every time I make this simple little recipe it’s a true test in self-control. They are so addictive, I can’t stop eating them! Whether you’re having an impromptu get together or a party, they are the perfect addition to an appetizer menu. I love how simple they are to prepare, yet they taste and look so sophisticated. They go perfectly well with a cold beer, a crisp glass of wine or a tall glass of iced tea – it’s your choice; dress them up or play them down, they fit into just about any occasion.

Hi Jennifer. Can I make this without the Truffle oil? My Husband has an allergy to mushrooms. Thanks.
Yes you can make it without the truffle oil. Obviously you’ll be missing a layer of flavor, but it will still be very good.
