Mmmmm... Buffalo Wings

Live Driver Inigo sent us in the E&C Buffallo Wings Recipe. If you're not familiar with them, they're delicious and moreish, with just the right ammount of spicy kick. Try them out and let us know how you got on.

Hey guys.

Note: A lot of credit is due to the various contributors to the E&C
wings thread on, especially 'Ballyman' for identifying
Franks as the key ingredient.

36 chicken wing pieces (one wing makes 2 pieces - the "flat" and the "drum")
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 tablespoon salt
1 tablespoon cayenne pepper
Mug of flour

1 1/2 tablespoons cider vinegar (or balsamic cider vinegar if you can get it)
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/8 teaspoon garlic salt
1/4 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon Tabasco sauce
1/4 teaspoon salt
6 tablespoons butter
6 tablespoons Frank’s Original Hot Sauce – Available from most Tescos
and Fallon & Byrne – Don’t buy the pre-mixed buffalo wing sauce!

Blue cheese dressing or sour cream

1. Preheat oven to 210 Celsius.

2. Cut whole wings into two pieces and remove the wing tip. In a bowl
toss the wings with the oil, and salt. Place into a large plastic
shopping bag, and add the flour and cayenne pepper. Shake to coat
evenly. Remove wings from the bag, shaking off excess flour, and
spread out evenly on an oiled cookie sheet or similar. Bake for about
20 minutes, turn the wings over, and cook another 20 minutes, or until
the wings are cooked through and crispy. Wings can also be deep-fried
if you prefer.

3. While the wings are baking, mix all the ingredients for the sauce
in a pan, and over a very low heat melt them together, stirring
constantly - don't let the butter separate, and then turn off. You can
adjust the amount of butter in the mix to suit your own taste/heat
tolerance - E&C use a LOT of butter.

4. After the wings are cooked, transfer to a large mixing bowl. Pour
the sauce over the hot wings and toss with a spoon or spatula to
completely coat.

5. Serve with dipping sauce, french fries sprinkled with garlic salt
and a beer. And celery if you’re into that sort of thing.

6. Gorge yourself.

(E&C actually deep fry the wings, but the above version is easier to
do at home.)

  1. From Wiki - Blue cheese dressing is a popular salad dressing and dip in the United States. It is usually made from mayonnaise, sour cream, blue cheese, milk, vinegar, onion powder, dry mustard, and garlic powder. Most major salad dressing producers and restaurants produce a variant of blue cheese dressing. It is commonly served with buffalo wings or raw vegetables. There is a Midwestern US version that consists of blue cheese crumbles in a California style French dressing.
