CLEVELAND — It wouldn't be Super Bowl Sunday without a big pile of chicken wings.
But instead of ordering takeout, why not try cooking those wings for yourself this year -- including your own homemade sauce?
We found the perfect way to make buffalo sauce courtesy of Matt Fish, the owner of Melt Bar & Grilled.
He dropped by wkyc studios Thursday morning to share his secret sauce recipe.
The base: Frank's Red Hot.
OK, that's easy enough.
Next step: Liquid margarine.
"Liquid margarine is the key to all your buffalo sauces," Fish said. "That’s why it gets that nice sheen."
He said you can use butter, too, but he prefers the liquid margarine instead.
What follows is a combination of various ingredients (no exact amounts provided -- watch video above for more guidance):
- Crushed red pepper seeds
- Celery seeds
- Roasted garlic powder
- Onion powder
- Fresh garlic
Mix it all together and coat your cooked wings. Enjoy!
