It doesn’t get much better than the original buffalo wing but the element that never gets enough love is the blue cheese dip.
So not only are we going to make the wings but also the dip.
Step 1: First Off the Sauce.
You can beat the original hot sauce for this recipe, Franks Hot Sauce.
For the sauce, you’ll need 2 parts hot sauce, to 1-part butter
Melt the butter in the hot sauce.
If you find this is too hot, have the sauce 1 part hot sauce, to 1 part butter.
Once the butter is fully combined, let cool.
Before pulling into a sauce bottle.
This will make it a whole lot easier when it comes time to serve.
Step 2: Next the Blue Cheese Dip!
In a bowl:
- ½ cup of mayonnaise
- ½ a cup of sour cream
- ¼ cup of buttermilk
- 1 tsp minced garlic
- ½ tsp black pepper
- ½ tsp salt
- ½ tsp mustard powder.
- Grate 50g of frozen blue cheese into the bowl using a micro plane
Mix it all together.
Step 3: Next You’ll Need the Wings.
Cut the wings into individual pieces, I’ve got about 1 kg of wings here.
Put dry with paper towel.
Step 4: Heat a Pot of Oil to 365f or 185c.
Carefully place the wings into oil and fry for 13 minutes.
13 minutes seems to be the magic number; you’ll end up with tender meat with a crispy outside.
It’s easier to cook in two batches.
After 13 minutes, let the wings drain.
Step 5: Add Some Sauce to a Large Bowl Before Tipping in the Wings
Coat with a little more sauce.
Toss the wings through the sauce.
Step 6: There You Have It! Buffalo Wings With Blue Cheese Sauce.
Also, don’t forget the celery sticks.
These have to be my favourite type of wings.
The Blue Cheese Dip is easy to make and is worth making at home yourself.
