I’ve probably seen a dozen recipes similar to this one on Pinterest. And I’ve always – since 2011 when I got Pinterest – wanted to eat them all. So for football season, I decided to make my own version!

About Pinterest… I go through these waves of obsession. A month will go by and I won’t touch it. Then I will be on it for what seems like ten hours a day, just obsessing like crazy over every tiny recipe. And yes, I use Pinterest almost exclusively for food. Have you seen my boards? Almost all food. It’s crazy.

And don’t you just wish you could see people’s secret boards?! For example, I kept all my wedding pinning private on a secret board. Had to be done.

Back to food – one day I’m going to have to make a huge long blog post that will just be a round-up of all my buffalo chicken recipes. I swear there are two dozen by now. And Costco coming out with this gallon jug of buffalo chicken sauced did not help.

And BACON! My cousin-in-law believes in adding bacon to everything. I tend to agree.

Serve this with a side of sour cream… just yes.

(Pardon me for the nighttime photos. And the missing green onion. I’m the worst.)
