It’s often said that variety is the spice of life, and that’s true in many cases — just not during the Super Bowl. As everybody knows, buffalo sauce is the preferred spice of life on Super Bowl Sunday.
That being said, you can still inject a little variety into your smaller game-day gathering by swapping out a tray of buffalo wings for a different buffalo-drenched appetizer, such as popcorn, cauliflower, or even deviled eggs. In fact, we’ve gathered eight great ideas for buffalo-based recipes below, and each looks just as delicious as a plate of fiery wings.
Try one of the following recipes at this year’s Super Bowl viewing, but just be sure not to skimp on that sauce. (Like we said earlier, “variety” is fine and dandy, but it’s no substitute for hot sauce.)
