Demogorgonzola Crostini - Stranger Things Inspired FoodsI may be a little excited about the upcoming premiere of Stranger Things season two. So excited that I wanted to share some Stranger Things inspired food that you can make for your viewing party! This is what I call the Demogorgonzola Crostini. It has a funny story, I promise, stay with me.

My husband and I binge-watched the first season a few times already. After the initial armchair clutching and swearing at the screen, you can joke about and discuss how amazing this show really is. We even started cracking jokes about the Demogorgon to have run with it. If you refer to the monster as the demogorgonzola during your binge it makes it far more entertaining. So I thought, that would make a great gorgonzola cheese recipe. But not just any food item. I wanted to tie in the upside down and the gory parts of the show as well. Alas, the Demogorgonzola Crostini was born!

This would be the perfect thing to serve at a Stanger Things viewing party. They are handheld for easy eating in front of the TV on October 27th when all episodes of season 2 begin streaming. Not to mention they are super simple to make.

Let’s start by preparing the bread first. Demogorgonzola Crostini - Stranger Things Inspired Foods

Brush the butter, garlic, and parsley mixture onto both sides of the french bread. Demogorgonzola Crostini - Stranger Things Inspired FoodsLightly toast for approximately 5 – 8 minutes. Watch that they don’t over toast or burn. Demogorgonzola Crostini - Stranger Things Inspired Foods

While the bread is toasting, make the steak rub. Demogorgonzola Crostini - Stranger Things Inspired FoodsSprinkle the rub all over the steak, top, and bottom. If you wish, this can be done ahead of time for it to have a deeper season/taste, but it’s not necessary.

Demogorgonzola Crostini - Stranger Things Inspired FoodsSear the meat on both sides for approximately 3 – 4 minutes each for a medium rare cook. If you would prefer it more done, then increase the searing time for about a minute or two each. (6 minutes a side would be well done). Remove from the pan and let rest.

In a small saucepan, combine the cream, gorgonzola, sour cream and cream cheese. Stir until the cheeses melt and everything is incorporated. Add your salt to taste. Remove from the heat and set aside for now.

Slice your meat into thin slices against the grain. Time to assemble our crostini. Demogorgonzola Crostini - Stranger Things Inspired Foods

Take one crostini, and lay the strips of beef on top. Follow with a few dollops of the gorgonzola sauce. Top with parsley.

If you want to go all out I suggest Eggo waffles, meatloaf, Coca-Cola, french fries, ice cream and various candies from the 80’s! Epic Stranger Things viewing party food!
