Buffalo & Blue Cheese Egg Salad

Ah, this post seems to have been long awaited!  It felt like forever, but with working, school and the move – I had absolutely no time at all to take pictures of the food that I consumed and write it up on here.  Hopefully, that has changed, and I do hope to put a lot more posts up.

We are finally settled in to Virginia.  I’ve always loved this state.  I enjoy the fact that it has everything we could want within driving distance… a beach on one end, mountains on the other, cities in all directions and an abundance of vineyards (because that’s a must, you know?).  We chose Virginia because with everything I had just stated, it’s also located in the middle of both of our families.  Granted, the place we moved to is not entirely an ideal place to live forever, but at least we are in the state that we want to be in.  Hopefully I’ll have some home decorating things, as we update some much needed items in our household – the majority being DIY (although, I’m not sure how soon that will be).

Anyway, the first day we moved in, I requested that we order Papa Johns because it had been sooo long since I’ve eaten there, and I’m sort of a pizza addict.  I mix up my pizza choices from time to time, but I’m pretty persistent on ordering buffalo chicken.  I don’t even remember the first time I had buffalo chicken.  It could have been on pizza – or it could have been on wings (although, that’s highly doubtful – I went through a phase where I wouldn’t eat chicken with the skin on or on the bone.)  Anyway, my obsession with the buffalo flavor has been put into chilli, soup, dip, quesadillas, you name it – I’ll make a buffalo version of it!

Now – fast forward to the fact that it’s going to be Easter in less than a week! (my goodness where has the time gone?) I have an abundance of hard boiled eggs and I love a good egg salad.  In comes the buffalo flavor to save the day – with some buffalo and blue cheese egg salad!

Buffalo & Blue Cheese Egg Salad

Serves 2-3

  • 6 eggs (hard boiled)
  • 1/4 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 tbsp miracle whip (I’m sure you can use mayonnaise – I just don’t ever have any in the house)
  • 2 tbsp blue cheese
  • 2 tbsp buffalo sauce (I used a no-sugar added brand from whole foods)
  • salt and pepper
  • Ezekiel bread, toasted (for serving)
  • sprinkle of chives

Roughly chop up the eggs and place in a bowl.  Add all of the ingredients to the bowl with the exception of the bread and chives.  Mix together.  Put on toasted bread or dip crackers into.
