It’s crazy to me that this weekend is Labor Day, although the weather there in Minnesota has been feeling every single bit like fall! So I guess it’s time for allllll of the comfort food recipes, yes?! Bring on the Buffalo Chicken Sliders…I am here for it!
That also means it’s football season which means it’s time to load up on the game day recipes! I mean, game day is all about the food, right? While I grew up watching football and going to college football games (go Hawkeyes!) I married a guy who isn’t really into football. Sure, he’ll cheer for the Vikings when he wants to, but we don’t have football games streaming on the TV all Saturday and Sunday afternoon, and don’t carve out entire weekends to tailgate and go to games.
Part of me is okay with leaving that in the past, but sometimes I get nostalgic for those good ‘ol days. I mainly miss the football food. There, I said it. I miss all the dips and chilis and meats and wings!
Even though we don’t watch football on a regular basis, I’m still going to make it a habit to cook “football food”. Who says you have to be watching men in tights tackling each other to enjoy buffalo chicken wings, anyways?
Buffalo chicken is, hands down, my favorite flavor combination to play around with. I’ve made everything from buffalo chicken grilled cheese sandwiches, buffalo chicken tater tot casserole, and buffalo chicken burgers to buffalo chicken tater tot nachos and buffalo chicken chopped salads.
Next up in my buffalo chicken creations: Buffalo Chicken Sliders! Sliders are always great when there’s a spread of food because you get the sandwich experience without commiting to a full-sized sandwiches. This leaves room for other things, which is pretty important when it comes to a spread of football food.
However, now that I think about it, I might just choose to fill up on these buffalo chicken sliders because they are insanely delicious. Let’s talk about what they have going on.
I mean, for real! These are amazing and will win the heart (stomach?) of any football fan!
