What could be better for a Super Bowl party than delicious, messy, juicy Buffalo wings!

Here’s my husband’s favorite Buffalo wings recipe. We try to make them a little healthier by baking them (and this way you don’t have to worry about the hassle of frying), but I promise you do not sacrifice on flavor. You still get all that tangy, spicy, crunchy goodness!

The blue cheese dipping sauce (which is very blue cheesy, btw) is a perfect counterbalance to the heat from the wings. And we like to keep things pretty traditional by using Frank’s Louisiana Hot Sauce.

I promise these wings will get your guests talking, or at least saying, “Mmmmm…,” while they’re wiping their mouths.



  1. Pat your wings dry (it will help them crisp up)
  2. Generously salt  wings.
  3. Place wings on a wire rack
  4. Bake at 450 degrees for 45 minutes or until  golden brown.

While the wings are baking you can prepare your sauce.




  1. Melt the butter, and in a large bowl combine it with hot sauce, brown sugar, and vinegar.
  2. When wings are done, add wings to mixture and coat.




  1. To prepare the dressing, place the blue cheese, buttermilk, and olive oil in a medium bowl and stir together with a fork, mashing a little to break up the cheese.
  2. Season with the lemon juice, salt, pepper, and chives.
  3. Chill until serving.

My husband and I like ours medium spicy, but if you want to add some heat, just swap in Frank’s XTRA Hot Sauce and go to town! 🙂
