Would You Buffalo It?
The Kitchen hosts take a look at unique foods that include game day’s ultimate flavor — Buffalo Wing sauce!
The Kitchen hosts play a game of "Would You Buffalo It?" They took a look at fun, Buffalo chicken-flavored dishes and voted if these viewer mashups were a "Buffalo" or a "Buffa-No."
The first social media photo came from a viewer who made Buffalo chicken stuffed peppers with a creamy ranch drizzle. Jeff Mauro and Katie Lee Biegel liked the combination of stuffed peppers with Buffalo chicken flavors and voted to Buffalo it. Geoffrey Zakarian and Alex Guarnaschelli gave this one a Buffa-No.
Next up, a viewer made Buffalo chicken soup with hot sauce, cream cheese and orzo. This one came down three to one. GZ, Alex and Katie were all in agreement: Buffalo chicken soup was a Buffalo! For Jeff, Buffalo chicken soup was a Buffa-No.
Cupcakes were the next thing to get the Buffalo treatment. One viewer made them with the hot sauce baked right into the batter, then topped them with cream cheese frosting, celery and a crispy chicken wing. Katie and Alex thought this was a Buffalo because of its creative mashup of flavors, but GZ and Jeff gave this one a Buffa-No.
Everyone got to taste the final Buffalo chicken-inspired dish. Each host dug into a bowl of Buffalo popcorn made with store-bought kettle corn and Buffalo wing sauce and dusted with blue cheese powder. The reviews were mixed on this one, but Jeff and Katie loved it for a game day snack.
