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.
