So this year I am going to label each such post as Football Eats and show how I made it. Sound good?
Last night was the first night of college football and there were two games I wanted to watch: UCLA vs. Rice and South Carolina vs. Vanderbilt. I sent Elizabeth a text in the afternoon: "I'm gonna make buffalo chicken egg rolls tonight, cool?"
"Yeah!" was her one-word response.
I roasted the chicken in the oven for twenty minutes then chopped it up into small bits and placed them in a bowl to cool.
The obvious cheese to use in this situation would have been blue cheese. I chose not to. Blue cheese is such a strong, often overpowering flavor. I didn't want to include that inside the egg roll, where the flavor would be unavoidable. I decided to use the blue cheese on the side, where we could add as much of it as we wanted. Inside the egg rolls, I just used shredded mozzarella.
Have a great holiday weekend.
