Among the Houston Chronicle's most requested recipes is the following from Pappas' former Strawberry Patch restaurant, now the location of Pappas Bros. Steakhouse. The following recipe is especially treasured because the Strawberry Patch is closed.

  • 1 teaspoon each black pepper and cayenne
  • 1/2 pound blue cheese


  1. Combine oil, garlic, mayonnaise, buttermilk, black pepper and cayenne in bowl, mix until thoroughly combined.
  2. Crumble cheese into pieces a little larger than green peas.
  3. Fold into dressing mixture with rubber spatula.
  4. Store in airtight container in refrigerator as long as 5 days.
