Buffalo Chicken French Bread - Crunchy, creamy, and a little spicy! Perfect as an appetizer or as a main dish!
We are a buffalo loving kind of family and love it on top of anything. You name it; I may have added buffalo chicken to it or on top of it. We recently tried it on top of a half loaf of french bread, and it was fantastic. Each bite contained the perfect amount of chicken, buffalo sauce, and cheese. We cannot forget about the cheese, especially blue cheese - mmm!
Do you love watching movies? We do, and I always make an appetizer or something you can devour while without taking your eyes off the screen. We recently purchased a huge tv, and we are in love with in. We hardly ever go to the movies anymore.
So when a new movie comes out that we have been dying to see, we like to create enjoyable movie night at home. Speaking of movies, have you heard of the new Burnt movie coming out soon? I cannot wait! It looks like a movie the hubby and I will both enjoy!
Usually, we buy any blue cheese for our buffalo chicken. This time, we thought it would up our game and purchased a container of Castello Danish Blue Cheese. If you are a fan of blue cheese, this cheese is for you! It's a little different than traditional blue cheese, a little tangier, in my opinion. But so good.
Not a fan of blue cheese? Don't worry, you may find even more Castello Blue Cheeses, available in a variety of strengths and flavors; from tangy and sharp to sweet and floral notes or a nutty aroma.
You can also find other types of cheeses from Castello; the Havarti Creamy would be a great substitute for mozzarella!
