Wings are like the ultimate gathering food. Whenever there is a crowd, wings are the go-to, right?
I mean, we've been watching the World Series (Go Sox) and that is the perfect time to chow down on wings.
Oh, we had family game night and guess what? Wings!
Football? I think you know what goes great with football?
Do I need to say it?
I didn't think so.
Okay, so I said it anyway. I'm in an obnoxious mood. Sorry. (Not really)
TIP: SERVE YOUR WINGS WITH EXTRA FRANK'S REDHOT SAUCES ON THE SIDE
Here's the deal with wings though. Not everyone in my house can agree on the flavor profile. It's kind of a pain to make a bunch of different flavors.
Just last week, I was planning on making wings and realized my daughter doesn't want spicy, my husband doesn't want BBQ, etc.
It's hard to have to cater to everyone's wing needs.
And that's when I saw it. My solution. Oh, sweet solution, sitting right there in the Walmart freezer. Frank's RedHot Bone-In Wings.
Yes, the same Frank's RedHot who makes the sauces we all love.
I learned Frank's RedHot Bone-In Wings come in three flavors; Original, Buffalo & Kickin' BBQ. Apparently, my Walmart was already sold out of the Buffalo (I'm guessing because they're popular) so I grabbed the Original & the Kickin' BBQ. Side note, I've put the Buffalo Flavor on my shopping list for next week, so I'll update you and let you know what I think of those.
These wings couldn't be easier. Just plop them on a foil lined baking sheet and bake them and they're done. They're already coated with seasonings and sauce, making them perfect in a pinch.
Because I'm me, I always have to serve my wings with a dipping sauce. There's kind of a a debate over here whether the proper dipping sauce for wings is blue cheese or ranch. And by a debate, I mean, I am the one who can't decide which I like better.
For these wings though, I chose to not use a straight up dressing but made a super quick and easy dip.
It's a little tangy and it will cool your mouth but also give you that little burst of blue cheese too. Does that make sense? It's hard to describe the flavor, trust me, just make it.
Some events coming up that I plan to use the shortcut of Frank's RedHot Bone-In Wings along with my super yummy Blue Cheese Wing Dip:
- Game Night
- Quick dinner after soccer
- World Series
- My daughter's birthday
- Thanksgiving appetizer
- Christmas parties
- New Year's Eve
Blue Cheese Wing Dip
- ½ C sour cream
- ½ C plain Greek yogurt
- 1 clove garlic minced
- ½ C crumbled blue cheese
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- ⅛ teaspoon cracked black pepper
- Stir all ingredients together until combined.
- If desired top with additional crumbled blue cheese or chopped green onion.
- Keep chilled until use.

So they're good? I'll have to see if my store sells them. I'm the only one (there's only two of us now) who eats them so it would be a fun treat for me to make the dip and just enjoy the bag o wings!
