Sticky Honey Buffalo Chicken Wings
Tailgating season is back and better than ever, piggy peeps! I don't know about you but I also ready to bring football back into my life. I just drafted my fantasy team and I have big hopes that my home team is going to be putting up some major points throughout the season.
Let's be honest though, as much as we love that ol' game we call football, the tailgating food is where it's AT. It's the thing that gets you through between the end of summer recipes and the official start of the holiday season once November rolls around. That means we have two months to stuff our faces with all the cheese, bacon and meats we can get our hands on.
And I'm starting with wings. Sticky, sweet and spicy wings that make you bust out the wet wipes and get extra messy. This is just the recipe to start off with people! Just look at that sticky sauce covering those baked wings.... ALL. THE. YES. Are you ready to dig in??
INSTRUCTIONS: Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a large bowl, whisk together vegetable oil, 2 Tbsp melted butter, salt, pepper, garlic powder and smoked paprika. Add the wings and toss. Lay wings on lined baking sheet in a single layer. Bake for 45 to 50 minutes. Turn the oven to broil on high. Move chicken wings to the top rack and broil for 3 to 4 minutes, until crispy. Flip and broil again on the other side.
In a medium saucepan over medium heat, stir together hot sauce and cornstarch. Add butter, molasses and honey, stirring to combine. Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer for 4 to 5 minutes until the sauce is thickened. Toss wings in a large bowl with the honey buffalo sauce. Serve with ranch or blue cheese dressing.

I mean, if you can't indulge before and during a football game, what the hell is the point of all the delicious, extravagant, decadent food out there in the world? I know that's a wee bit dramatic, but that's how freaking amazing these brisket bombs. They come together in about 15 minutes and they'll have everyone begging for more.

Don't believe me? I dare you to try these out for the next big game and prove me wrong...
INSTRUCTIONS: Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line two baking sheets with a silicone baking mat or parchment paper. Separate biscuits. Flatten out each biscuit slightly and place 1 to 2 cubes of cheese in the center. Top with chopped biscuit and wrap the biscuit around the filling. Pinch the seams tightly and place seam-side down on the lined baking sheets. In a small bowl, combine melted butter, garlic powder and onion powder. Brush the tops of the biscuits with the seasoned butter. Bake 10 minutes. Remove from oven and brush the tops of the biscuits again with the seasoned butter. Serve with BBQ sauce.
