Old Bay Buffalo Wings

Uh oh. The folks over at Old Bay have done it now. Wasn’t it enough that I was already addicted to Old Bay seasoning? Now they have a hot sauce too. Oh, yes! Glorious Old Bay flavors in a sauce! That means that I can make the most amazing Buffalo wings day after day! Lightly spicy, wonderfully tasty, these are the wings dreams are made of!

Old Bay Buffalo Wings

When you make the sauce for these Old Bay hot sauce Buffalo wings you have to be mindful of two things: don’t have the heat too high and don’t cook it too long. You want just the slightest simmer. Enough to melt the butter, warm things up, and dissolve the seasonings. If you have the heat too high, or cook the sauce too long, the sauce will separate. A little separation is normal, you can whisk the ingredients and they’ll come back together. But if you overheat or overcook, it won’t get that nice consistency no matter how much you whisk.

If you love Old Bay seasoning as much as I do, you gotta make my Old Bay dry wings too!
