Forget wings, you can 'Buffalo' anything

Buffalo oven fried goat cheese

This Sunday, millions of buffalo wings will be consumed at tailgate parties, bars, restaurants, and homes in conjunction with the largest sporting event in the United States, the Super Bowl. The popularity of this game-day snack might make it difficult to find wings in the supermarket, but that's okay because you can get the same great flavor in a variety of other dishes, sans chicken.

The folks at Yahoo! Food get us started with their five 'Buffalo' recipes that aren't wings, including nachos, deviled eggs, and meatballs. We dug around in the EYB Library to find plenty of other options as well. One item that pops up in various blogs and books is buffalo cauliflower. There are both fried and roasted versions of this, which even resemble the drummettes portion of wings.

Other choices include crispy buffalo fries, blue cheese buffalo bites that feature Hawaiian sweet bread, and buffalo patatas bravas, which combine potatoes and blue cheese. Keeping on the cheese theme, how about Buffalo oven "fried" goat cheese (pictured above)? Going in a completely different direction we find buffalo popcorn, which sounds like excellent game-watching fare.

    I made the buffalo cauliflower recipe from Leite's Culinaria. It was awesome.
