The first time I ever had Buffalo wings I just about flipped!! What an awesome idea that lady from Buffalo, New York had. Since then, I’ve used the same concept to make dips, pizzas, salads, and, my latest concoction,… hoagies. They are really good.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

These Buffalo wing hoagies are a combination of spicy, cheesy, and crunchy. It's everything you love about Buffalo chicken and more. The hoagie rolls are toasted with butter, garlic, and parsley making them fragrant and crispy. Chicken strips are coated with a hot sauce mixture that has a hint of barbecue and chili flavors. Muenster cheese melts on top of the chicken. Top with crunchy lettuce and celery and sprinkle with tomatoes. Blue cheese dressing has a tangy and rich flavor that is great with the Buffalo sauce. A tasty and satisfying sandwich for game day or a casual lunch.
