I can remember when Buffalo Wild Wings opened in Manhattan, Kansas. I was in my final year of school at Kansas State University and everyone was so excited to eat there. Everyone… except me. I understood the price point was spot on for a college student’s budget. I think they offered 10c wings on Tuesdays or something like that. I tried them. I tried them several times. Those wings just never hit the spot for me. (No offense to BWW or anyone who loves them.) Fast forward to grad school in Buffalo, NY – home of the original buffalo wings. I very quickly became a convert. I had wings at more restaurants than I can count and loved them! When you live in Buffalo, you eventually claim one of two places as the best in town for wings. Anchor Bar or Duff’s. To be clear, I am a Duff’s girl. The wings are crispy, the fries are crispy, the sauce is incredible. If you’re ever in Buffalo, you’ve got to stop by and have an authentic wing experience.
These days, I don’t eat much fried food and I lean toward a vegetarian diet. In other words, I can’t even remember the last time I had wings. However, I’m still a fan of buffalo sauce and enjoy incorporating it into other foods. Here, I’ve created an easy buffalo dip recipe. This is perfect for game day parties or even just to have on hand for a snack. Serve it up with a variety of vegetables and chips or spread it onto a sandwich. Eat it warm or cold, either way it is delicious!
