As everyone around here might know, I'm a total wing nut. But the other thing I am is a tightwad, so instead of shelling out too much money for the inferior wings at a certain national chain just so I can have their roasted garlic sauce, I decided to try it myself at home. This is the result.

Clearly, my food photography skills need a little work. I even have a nice new DSLR camera. Still, you should be able to get the idea. And it is a very easy recipe.

Step 1: The Players

This is literally a six-ingredient sauce:
  • Anywhere from 18 to 24 ounces of vinegar-based hot sauce. I use various Frank's knock-offs and store brands. No sense using the expensive stuff here.
  • Some honey to take the edge off the sauce and add a bit of sweetness.
  • 8 to 10 heads of garlic, depending on their size and how little you care about your breath.
  • Some salt for roasting the garlic.
  • Some oil, again for roasting the garlic. I use olive oil.
  • 1 stick of butter, cut into pieces, though you don't need to do that until later.
For tools, you need a food processor, though a blender should also do the job. You'll also need a skillet or other pan for simmering, a whisk, and a spatula.
Cant wait to try this out.
I just tried it, sing 3/4 of the amount of garlic for uncertainty reasons. The garlic itself tasted better than expected, the finished product did not, though, I found it too sweet and not hot enough, although I think this is probably due to the choice of sauce...
Really? I find mine to be barely sweet at all. How much honey did you add? I usually put in about 1 1/2 tablespoons or so. Not too much.
Sounds dangerous... I have to try this, thanks ;).
