Football season is here, and I’m ready to celebrate with these tantalizing Buffalo Chicken Pimento Cheese Pizza Bagels. Seven simple ingredients, so much flavor!
Calling all buffalo wing and cheese lovers! I’ve got something special for you today that you do not want to miss.
But first, let me ask you a question…
Have you ever eaten HOT pimento cheese? If you haven’t experienced the shear ecstasy of dipping deep into a bowl of steaming liquefied southern cheesy goodness, you have been missing out.
Cold pimento cheese is good, but hot pimento cheese is etherial.
After tasting such a treat, one can only ponder questions like:
“Is it possible to sneak hot pimento cheese into my dinner recipe every night without anyone noticing?”
“I wonder if I could replace all household heated scent diffusors with mini crock pots of pimento cheese?”
“How fast can I list all the foods that are improved by a dollop of hot pimento cheese in alphabetical order?”
And best of all, “What is the best thing to serve with hot oozing pimento cheese?”
Actually the last one is a no-brainer. Bagels.
Bagels are the absolute BEST thing to eat with hot pimento cheese, because you can spread it over the top of each bagel then bake them (or grill them) so the edges of the bagel are toasty and the molten cheese drapes over the top, softening the inside even more.
It’s like biting into your best childhood memory, while wrapped in a fuzzy pink blanket.
You don’t have to trust me on this one… Try it!
Preferably on a Thomas’ Bagel, soft and wheaty with that classic chewy exterior.
Today we’re serving up comfort food at its finest (with hot pimento cheese!) just in time for your tailgating weekends and game day parties. I’ve got toasty Buffalo Chicken Pimento Cheese Pizza Bagels, just for you.
Imagine… spicy buffalo chicken, and a thick blanket of hot molten pimento cheese and pepper jack cheese, generously piled on top of a toasted bagel. And for good measure, a sprinkling of blue cheese and scallions on top!
This clash of classic comfort foods makes my head spin, for all the right reasons.
With only seven ingredients, and seven minutes in the oven this is a recipe you’ll make all season. Plus, baking Buffalo Chicken Pimento Cheese Pizza Bagels is a great way to make use of leftovers or store-bought item favorites.
For instance, use up leftover chicken mixed with cayenne pepper sauce for the “buffalo chicken. If you don’t have leftover chicken laying around, buy a couple cooked chicken breasts from the prepared food counter at your grocery store.
You can also use fresh homemade pimento cheese, or buy your favorite brand of pimento cheese at the store.
Slather soft fragrant Thomas’ Plain Bagels with the pimento cheese. Then top each bagel with shredded pepper jack and buffalo chicken.
Once they come out of the oven, the aroma of wheaty goodness, melted cheese, and spicy cheese is intoxicating.
But before you take a bite, sprinkle the top with crumbled blue cheese and chopped green onions… It’s worth the wait!
You can make all sorts of pizza bagels with Thomas’s Bagels this season, but don’t forget to give this Buffalo Chicken Pimento Cheese Pizza Bagels Recipe a try.
You won’t be sorry!
