Football Food

My dad raised me right, and as such, I love watching football.  I've even impressed a few people over the years with my commentary ("that was a real heads up play" gets them every time).  But just as important as a good game is good game-watching food.  My snack of choice, if I had to pick just one, is wings.  More than just a vehicle for the blue cheese dressing, a good wing is crispy, fall of the bone tender, and packed with flavor.  Well, great news, all of this is super achievable at home.  You just need a little extra time to get the wings dried out, a hot oven, and above-average blue cheese and you can skip the dive bar this season.  Go Panthers!

Homemade Buffalo Wings:

2 lbs. chicken wings

2 tsp. salt

4 Tbsp. butter

4 Tbsp. Franks Red Hot

 

Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil and set a wire rack inside.  Dry chicken wings and toss in a bowl with the salt. Place on the rack, leaving a generous amount of space in between the wings.  Place the wings in the refrigerator and allow to rest, uncovered, overnight.  The next day, cook wings in a pre-heated 425* oven for 20 minutes.  Flip, then cook for another 15-20 minutes, until crisp and golden brown.  Remove wings from the oven, place in a bowl with butter and hot sauce, and toss to coat.  Serve immediately with blue cheese dressing.

 

Blue Cheese Dressing:

3/4 cup sour cream

1 cup mayonnaise

4 oz. good blue cheese, crumbled

juice of 1 lemon

pinch of salt

 

Combine all ingredients in a bowl and allow to sit for 4 hours.
