I'm not here to brag, but let’s just say that I know a thing or two about game dayfood. While I was a student in the Southern part of heaven, Chapel Hill, I worked as a server at a token college town sports bar. Shout out to the always (and by always, I mean never) classy, Hickory Tavern! Over the 2 years that I worked there, I saw MANY game days, and even more game day appetizers. I consumed tons of buffalo wings, and scoffed at anyone that ordered their wings with a side of ranch (unpopular opinion, sorry!!).

I can confidently say that this dish is better than anything I ever served at that restaurant (which, quite frankly, isn’t saying too much). Imagine if French fries, nachos, and buffalo wings joined forces and created the ultimate app--that’s the best way that I can describe these crispy smashed potatoes. They’re crunchy, spicy, and topped with a classic, homemade blue cheese dressing. If you’re smart, you’ll make a double batch of these ‘taters, ‘cause a hungry crowd can crush these in no time!

I opted for store bought buffalo sauce because it’s one less step to worry about before the BIG GAME (plus, I didn’t think Ina would mind). That said, I love a homemade blue cheese dressing, so I’m whipping one up from scratch. If kick off time is sneaking up on you, go for a pre-made blue cheese dressing! They’re your spuds--do what feels right. Because there’s no such thing as too much blue cheese, I topped off this whole situation with more blue cheese crumbles. If only my managers at that college sports bar could see me now!
