Okay so I’m not a big wing person. But last year I got REALLY into buffalo sauce on EVERYTHING and so I’m compiling a list of delicious buffalo food that is (potentially) easier to eat and less messy than a pile of wings.
Buffalo Chicken Potstickers – these sound fabulous. They retain the portability and dipability of buffalo wings but wrapped up in a cute little gyoza. Add to that the fact that of all dumpling preparations potstickers are my favorite. You have to take the time to fold them but they steam in the pan so you don’t have to worry about a bamboo steamer or an electric steamer which makes things super damp. Let’s go.
Buffalo Chicken Mac and Cheese – Blue cheese is one of those cheeses that I sometimes crave (kind of like my sometimes urges for buffalo sauce) but nobody else in my family will eat. I love finding a recipe that calls for it so I have an excuse to get some and sprinkle it on a bunch of stuff.
Cheesy Buffalo Mushroom Poppers – there is jalapeno in this as well for a great kick. Mushrooms mushrooms mushrooms
Buffalo Cauliflower Bites – I don’t promise this is the same recipe but my cousin brought some of these to a party I threw recently and they were the bomb. I somehow didn’t expect cauliflower replacing chicken to work this well for this type of food but I have learned.
Buffalo Chicken Rangoons – A crunchier alternative to the potstickers I started with. Crab rangoons are the best of the best when it comes to fried Chinese restaurant creations.
Buffalo Tots – I’m a little concerned that these might too easily become soggy. However the concept sounds great so I will definitely try to play with this recipe.
Buffalo Blue Cheese Deviled Eggs – My mother makes the best deviled eggs. And I’m not gonna lie I haven’t really diversified my deviled egg repertoire from the twangy relish, mustard, and paprika creation that is so popular in the south. But I’d be willing to try it for this recipe.
Cauliflower Buffalo Dip – Back to the cauliflower and buffalo. This won’t have the crispiness of the mock wings but promises to be cheesy and flavorful. Especially since it calls for an entire small bottle of hot sauce!
