I have to get something off of my chest: I am Buffalo Sauce crazy! I love everything dipped, dunked and drizzled with it. As many of you know, the majority of the things made with Buffalo Sauce are not the best for us. Case in point: Buff Chick. But, we all need to give a little sometimes when it comes to the diet.
Mr. Schwartz and I went grocery shopping together over the long weekend. I secretly, maybe not so secretly, love going grocery shopping. I especially love grocery shopping with Mr. Schwartz. Two of my favorite things: 1. basket full of possibilities and 2. hanging out with the love of my life.
Anyway, we stumbled across slider buns when we were shopping and the idea struck me. Buffalo Chicken Burger Sliders. I don't know about you but I hate eating Buffalo Chicken Sandwiches. The chicken slides around and ultimately you end up getting only bun in your bite. I figured making little ground chicken patties could solve this problem....they totally did! Aaaand these babies have wayy less fat and calories than Buffalo Wings.
