Buffalo Chicken Grilled Cheese Sandwich

Grilled Cheese IV: The Phantom Menace

Handsome Greg and his sandwich

In honor of National Grilled Cheese Month, I’m posting a different grilled cheese sandwich every single day through the month of April. You’re welcome.

I’ve never been a fan of buffalo chicken wings. Don’t get me wrong — I love the tart tomato kiss of buffalo sauce — but chicken wings just seem like an awful lot of mess with very little payoff.

National Grilled Cheese Month provided a perfect excuse to transform the spicy, pungent flavors of a sticky wing night into a tidy grilled cheese sandwich. I made this one for Handsome Greg and I on date night, and it was a hit. The cheese was creamy, the sauce was bold, and the combination was unmistakably hot wings.
