The Freshman Cook: Celebrate New Years with this Buffalo Wings Flatbread Appetizer!

I love a New Years Eve Party! Well, I love just about any reason for a party, but….New Years Eve is a great reason, and if you are looking for a simple, but yummy, appetizer for your New Years festivities, this Buffalo Wings Flatbread is for you! One of the reasons I love this appetizer is because I used actual leftover buffalo chicken wings to create this recipe. My husband and I went to TGI Fridays to have some lunch. We tried some appetizers, one of which was a flatbread. We also ordered chicken wings, some other yummy food, and had a really fun time. As usual, our eyes were bigger than our stomachs, and we ended up bringing home a bunch of chicken wings. After 2 days, the wings were still in the fridge, and I wanted to do something with them. I remembered that I had some flatbread I had bought at the grocery. Then, I thought about the flatbread we had at lunch, and I thought, what if I do this and add this, and I ended up with this flatbread, kinda inspired by TGI Fridays!

Buffalo Wings Flatbread

1 Flatbread

4 oz. Cream Cheese-softened

1 1/2 teaspoon Franks Red Hot Wing Sauce

7 cooked Buffalo Wings

2 stalks Scallions

1 Roma Tomato

Ranch Dressing

Blue Cheese Crumbles

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

I bought these at the grocery store.

They were sitting on shelves in front of the deli case.

The first thing to do is de-bone the chicken wings. I tried

to use a little of the skin, for the great flavor,

 but I pulled out any really fatty pieces. 

Chop your scallions also.

Chop your tomatoes. 

It is best to make them bite size or smaller.

Bake your flatbread, with nothing on it, for 10 minutes in the oven.

While it is cooking, mix your softened cream cheese and 

the wing sauce together. Add more or less to your liking.

Spread the cream cheese mixture over the flatbread.

Top the spread with chicken, scallions and tomatoes.

Bake in the oven for 10 -15 minutes

 Drizzle with ranch dressing, or…….

add some blue cheese crumbles. Yum!!

I cut my flatbread like a pizza slice, but you could do squares

and serve a lot more guests!

Thank you for joining me today!

Have a Happy, Happy New Year !

See you in 2014!!
