Buffalo Chicken Cheesy Bread

This is a perfect appetizer for any holiday or football game! You can also add more hot sauce to the buffalo chicken to make it as HOT as y.


Yield :

  • 12 PIECES

Ingredients :

  • 12 oz crusty bakery bread – I used Pane today, but I’ve also used Ciabatta or a French baguette in the past and they all work great! (I bought a one pound/16 oz loaf and scooped out some of the insides to get to 12 ounces because I love my cheese/bread ratio to be extra cheesy and crusty.
  • 8 oz 1/3 less fat cream cheese, softened
  • 1 ½ oz 50% reduced fat sharp cheddar, shredded
  • 2 tablespoons light blue cheese dressing
  • 2 tablespoons Buffalo wing sauce (or more to taste if you want it spicy – 2T is mild!)
  • 2 scallions, sliced

Preparation :

  • Move your oven rack to the top and preheat the broiler. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil.
  • Slice your loaf of bread into two halves, each with a long, flat surface and set them on the prepared baking sheet.
  • In a mixing bowl, combine the cream cheese, cheddar, blue cheese, wing sauce and scallions and stir until well combined and smooth.
  • Spread the mixture thickly and evenly over the cut surfaces of both bread halves.
  • Place the baking sheet with bread on the top rack (or second rack if the top doesn’t leave enough room) and broil for 2-3 minutes until the cheese spread and edges of the bread are golden.
  • Make sure to check frequently while the bread is broiling because it can go from golden to black very quickly!
  • Cut into 12 pieces (if you used a long skinny baguette instead of a shorter, wider bread like ciabatta or pane then you may want to cut it into 24 pieces instead) and serve.
