I have three meals’ worth of leftovers in my fridge and two meals’ worth of space in my fridge. One of these leftover cartons is large and housing Buffalo chicken. I like buffalo chicken, cheese, and this recipe looked awesome. So: buffalo grilled cheese!
- buffalo chicken tenders, cut up into bits
- “farmhouse” sourdough bread
- Caesar dressing
- American cheese
goat cheese cream cheese
Okay, so maybe I didn’t feel like buying the actual ingredients the above hyperlinked recipe called for. I had three kinds of cheese (wait, no, four. FOUR!) in the vegetable drawer already and didn’t foresee me using up all the crumbled blue cheese Shaw’s had on tap. And like, why buy blue cheese dressing when you have Caesar’s you (eventually) need to use up anyway? Right? So this sandwich was going to be a cross between the sandwich linked above and the Buffalo Ranch Melt at Denny’s. Except then I discovered my goat cheese was growing dark green fuzz and my cream cheese smelled kind of questionable. Oops.
The sandwich went from a poor woman’s Blue Buffalo to a poor woman’s Denny’s, is what I’m saying.
It is probably the best sandwich I will make all year.
