How to Make Captain's Log: Star Date 2011


  1. Melt the butter in a medium size microwaveable bowl and add all coating seasonings. Stir well. Add the Captain Crunch Cereal and stir to coat. Place bowl of ingredients in microwave and microwave for 2 minutes on 30 percent power, stirring every 30 seconds. You should see some slight browning on the cereal, but if not, microwave in 20 second intervals on 30% power, stirring after each interval. (Microwaves vary, so watch this step carefully) Remove from microwave and stir to cool to prevent overbrowning.
  2. In a second bowl, allow cream cheese to soften to room temp. Crumble feta and blue cheese into bowl and add cheddar/colby jack and hot sauce. Add all chopped peppers, parsley and Durkees Famous Sauce. Mix very well to form a cohesive mass. Place the mixed cheeses on waxed paper or plastic wrap and form into a tight log. Wrap and refrigerate for at least one hour or until set.
  3. Crush the Captain Crunch cereal mix to small crumbs and place in a shallow dish. Unwrap the cheese log and sprinkle the outside with smoked paprika or chili powder to cover lightly. Then roll the log in the crushed cereal mixture to coat well. Place on serving plate, cover with wrap and refrigerate until ready to serve. Let come to room temp to serve with assorted crackers.
