Who cares if you’re rooting for the Falcons or the Patriots– everyone knows that wings make Super Bowl parties a real success (as well as the commercials ringing in at $173,000 per second)! This weekend, an estimated 1.25 BILLION wings will be eaten as fans from all over cheer on someone’s team to win the big game. Whether you’re buying or cooking them, dipping in ranch dressing or blue cheese (we’ll save that debate for another day), picking flats or drums, hosting or coming over– enjoy the game and may the wing flavors be ever in your favor!
My top 5 in descending order are below.
Trust me– you can do this with or without the sesame seeds. When prepared the right way, these are sweet and pack a powerful punch of flavor. Be careful with teriyaki, however, as this flavor can be very different depending on where you go but they’re typically a win.
While they’re not my favorite, they’re definitely versatile and perfect for those who can’t handle spice or those who just want “chicken wings”. For me– this is about being considerate of guests more than anything else. If my guests are happy then I, too, am happy.
3. Honey BBQ
You can never go wrong with Honey BBQ’s sweet and savory appeal. Honestly, I’ve never met a person who hasn’t been a fan of Honey BBQ so whether you’re making your own or perusing the sauce aisle at your favorite grocer, make sure you’re ready to put these on the table.
2. Lemon Pepper
This is not a drill and this flavor is certainly not up for debate. As you navigate through the Super Bowl spread of sliders, ribs, beer and more– these have to find their way on to your plate. If you’re at a party and you don’t see these citrus infused wings then you’re not at a party. As a visitor or guest, do us all a favor– call ahead and bring some with you.
It’s self-explanatory. Hot wings always win. Always.
