March Madness is upon us…  and that means get together, cheering on our favorite teams and of course yummy food!

We love buffalo wings around here as an appetizer!  So much in fact, that we decided to turn one of our favorite appetizers into an amazing sub!  I pretty much devoured these and I know you’ll love them too!

This recipe starts out with our favorite Cobblestone Bread Co. White Grinder Sub Rolls lightly toasted with garlic butter, they are then topped with crispy, panko bread crumb coated, oven baked buffalo chicken meatballs and our favorite dressing.  The results were literally amazing!

The Cobblestone Bread Co. Grinder Sub Rolls are perfect for these subs because they are soft and delicious yet can easily hold together any combination you want to fill them with!  They are also the absolute perfect size to cut into 3 sliders!  That means you can make these subs to feed dinner to your hungry crowd but you can also make them as sliders for a perfect addition to any party table!

I made adorable little sandwich picks…  you can make these in any color to match your team!  The whole project took about 15 minutes start to finish!  Just cut some triangles & circles out of paper and glue them onto a skewer!
