    While I may be a little bummed about my team not making the tourney this year, March Madness is my favorite time of year. To me there is no better sporting event period. Where else can you watch 4 straight days of hard-nosed basketball for 3 weeks in a row? March Madness is a big BIG deal in my household and along with it comes big food and flavors. Buffalo anything is so dang delicious to me, and because I love meatballs, while not combine’em together for the ultimate March Madness sandwich!


    Of course you have to serve this insanely delicious sandwich with a blue cheese sauce or ranch dressing. The blue cheese sauce is so easy to make, it’s literally crumbled blue cheese, sour cream, mayo, salt and pepper. Making this homemade just adds that extra bit of love to the sandwich, and of course is great for dipping.

    To help chill out the intense spice from the buffalo sauce, simply cut it with a little whole unsalted butter. It will also help add a little bit of body to the sauce making it even more delicious. Also, don’t forget to serve this sandwich up with some sliced carrots and celery, because come on it’s buffalo!
