buffalo macaroni and cheese bites

It was a big football weekend! I had a friendly wager with my son that it was going to be the Seahawks and the Colts going to the Super Bowl. We each got one right, so there wasn’t much pain for either party. I called the Ohio State game a few weeks ago and he needed to make me Buckeyes┬áto fulfill his end of the wager. It took him until yesterday to pay up, and he refused to call them Buckeyes. He said that he couldn’t ever put anything called a Buckeye in his mouth, he called them Musket Balls in honor of his beloved Patriots instead. Some people are so touchy about their teams. Love you William. ­čÖé

When Wisconsin Cheese asked me to contribute a recipe for their All Things Mac and Cheese campaign, I knew┬áthat I wanted to marry my youngest son’s favorite food – mac and cheese – with my husband’s favorite food – buffalo anything. When I did,┬áthe perfect football snack for my boys was born – Buffalo Mac and Cheese Bites. These little bites are spicy, cheesy, and something a little different than your average football snack. I baked them individually in a mini muffin pan with the intention of just popping them into your mouth, but you could easily add cooked chicken and bake this in a casserole dish for a full meal. I like celery, carrots, and homemade ranch on the side.
