Buffalo Wings Recipes

baked buffalo wings

Crispy, well-cooked and flavorful. These buffalo wings recipes are a cut above the rest. Serve this crowd pleasing tradition as an appetizer on any party menu

Buffalo wings originated at the Anchor Bar in Buffalo, New York in the 1960's. As with most popular dishes, recipes vary from cook to cook.

In our first version, cornstarch produces a crispier crust then flour and the traditional hot sauce flavor has been deepened by adding brown sugar and cider vinegar.

The second recipe is baked not fried. This cuts the fat in half - but not the flavor.

Serve either with blue cheese, ranch or Spicy Remoulade Sauce and non-traditional whole peperoncini, celery and carrots. Dill pickles are good too!
