For tailgating season as part of a sponsored post for Collective Bias I made one of my favorite tailgating recipes, Buffalo Chicken Mac & Cheese.
Fall means different things to different people: changing leaves, pumpkin patches, cooler weather. It means all those things to us, as well, but the biggest thing that fall represents around here is football. Football is serious business here in Kentucky. We have lots of college teams that we love to support, plus two or three NFL teams within relative driving distance.
Lots of football means lots of occasions to eat (something else Kentuckians take pretty seriously). Whether it’s tailgating at the game or having friends and family over to watch the game, there are plenty of dips, lots of chili and casseroles, burgers and ribs, and tons of sweets. I have a variety of different recipes that I like to rotate through, but one thing I almost always make is my homemade Buffalo Chicken Mac & Cheese.
Buffalo Chicken Mac & Cheese is great for tailgating because it combines that great flavor of wings with delicious, comforting mac & cheese all in one dish. It’s easy to double, triple, half – whatever you need for the size of the crowd you’re serving. It’s also fairly easy to cook. The only downside to making it was that it took a little longer to assemble than I would have liked.
