What a doozy of a couple of weeks! A week camping, a stolen camera, a week in Mexico, ending a year long relationship, and finally moving into a new place. All in the span of a little less than 3 weeks. Saying I’m wearing out would be the understatement of the year. BUT good food is always the way to cure anything. Especially with a dash or twelve of hot sauce, and Frank’s RedHot Buffalo is perfect for Summer. Check out their Buffalo Chicken Sandwich recipe below and visit their site for inspiration.

Plus, these Crab Cake Sliders are the perfect way to celebrate the warmer months that are ahead. And Frank’s helps take the flavor to the next level and pairs perfectly with the mayo used to make the sliders. It’s safe to say that I Put That $#!+ On Everything! Why? Because Frank’s RedHot is the perfect combination of flavor & heat. And Frank’s RedHot Original is the most versatile sauce that can be used for a wide variety of dish types.

    How many does this make? It doesn’t say how many buns needed or how many slider balls to form. I’m trying to figure nutrition info. Thanks.

    • Hey Cindy! The amounts I listed make about 4 slider balls, more/less depending on the size of slider/bun size you are going for. Let me know if you have any other questions.
