Confession: I have a mild obsession with buffalo and blue cheese. Its one of my favorite combos and I find myself spinning a lot of stuff to fit that flavor profile and its so easy I just cant help myself. With that confession off my chest lets move on to this game day superfood.

One thing I LOVE about football season is food. Everyone wants to eat drink and be merry. From what ive noticed on game day is getting full is impossible and if you give someone food 9 times outta 10 they’ll eat. So I use this opportunity to test out new food and beverages. Some things I try not to push the envelope too much. This is the perfect feeler recipe to test the room and picky eaters especially when you’re testing the waters. Fortunately for me I have real good eaters around me that they welcome the experiments.
