Crispy Baked Buffalo Wings

Buffalo wings are the ultimate football food, and lucky for us they are actually super easy to make! Tasty buffalo wings don't need to be fried. Honestly, we think frying might take something away from them because where it's at is the buttery hot sauce and blue cheese dip. Waaaay better than the wings from that a well known joint with the half naked ladies.


We had to exercise self control at the grocery store and not buy too many wings because I'm pretty sure no matter how many we wings we would have purchased, we would have eaten them all.


We followed a classic recipe from the Frank's hot sauce website and surprisingly we didn't think the wings were all that hot. We don't actually like our wings super hot, so I thought they were perfect and Dustin just added a little extra sauce. Perfect.


Despite our beloved Texans not having the best of seasons, we definitely are still enjoying the food aspect of football season!
