You Probably Already Know How to Make These
I think this is a picture of our meal from the last Super Bowl, but it is almost exactly what we ate tonight. I guess we make this meal once a week or more because wings are great for a budget. We have a few ways we make them now, but this is the basic go-to meal. Cut them at the joint, place on a greased pan, bake at 400 until they reach your preferred texture. I like them when they are really crispy and the very tip of the wing bone is edible. Is that gross? If you have time, they are really good dipped in flour and fried first, but I fear hot oil and stick with baking unless Sergio is around. Meanwhile, heat up half a bottle of Louisiana hot sauce with a few tablespoons of butter. Add spices for heat if you like. We add cumin, chili, oregano, garlic powder, and crushed red pepper. Mix wings and sauce in a bowl and serve. Dip them in something.
If you aren't a buffalo wing fan then mix some butter with soy sauce, chili-garlic sauce, finely diced ginger and garlic, honey, and orange zest over low heat. Mix with cooked wings and serve. Dip them in something.
