Buffalo chicken lovers, do I have a recipe for you!

Not only am I from Buffalo, but I love Buffalo chicken.  Honestly I don’t know anyone that doesn’t love it.  It’s perfect for a football party or just when the craving hits, which for me happens frequently.

I have been on a meatloaf kick lately.  Probably because it is something the twins actually eat.  Shocking!  Recently when I was making my Turkey Meatloaf  I came up with the idea for Buffalo Chicken Meatloaf.  This is one tasty meatloaf.  There is so much flavor in each bite.  Ground chicken mixed with hot sauce, crumbled gorgonzola cheese and a blend of dried spices makes this an easy dish to make any day of the week.  Trust me, once you try this you’ll want it on your dinner menu again and again.

Use a cupcake tin for mini meatloaf cups that make the perfect portions.  Great to serve for a football party or anytime.  Best part, they are done in half the time!
