Crispy Baked Buffalo Wings (gluten free!)

Hello, football season! If you are planning on doing any tailgating this football season, you are going to need some easy, delicious tailgating recipes. These crispy baked buffalo wings are going to rock your world – as are the other 64 tailgating recipes – just in time for football season! I can’t think of a better reason to pair up with some other football foodies than to share our favorite football tailgating recipes.

For my part, as soon as my friends started talking about collaborating around football and tailgating, I knew I had to contribute these crispy baked buffalo wings. Crispy baked buffalo wings are good for tailgating or enjoying on your couch. And, the best part is that they are gluten-free.

Ever since I can remember, my dad has been baking chicken wings almost every Sunday during football season. They are such a treat! Growing up in Massachusetts, Sunday meant Patriots football. However, in college, I met a boy from New Jersey so I grew to love his Philadelphia Eagles. (At least he didn’t cheer for the Jets … that might have been a dealbreaker.)

Now that we have five kids in Charlotte, North Carolina, we have had the opportunity to cheer for the Panthers and watch them make it to the Super Bowl. Basically, I now have approximately three opportunities per weekend for 17 weekends to find an excuse to whip up some fun football foodie recipes.

Crispy Buffalo Chicken Wings

These crispy baked buffalo wings are a family favorite. I usually bake two pans of wings and make one pan buffalo wings and keep the other pan plain. I learned my buffalo wing secrets from the cook at a bar I used to waitress at in Boston. I served A LOT of buffalo wings at work and I loved to watch Paul fry up the wings, shake them in his designated “wing pan” and see beautiful crispy wings magically appear on the plate. Add some celery and bleu cheese dressing and you’ve got yourself one of the best possible football pre-game snacks.

I am a native New Englander now living in beautiful Charlotte, North Carolina and enjoying summers in sea-breezy Scituate, Massachusetts with my five small kids and two large dogs. I love to cook easy, local, and gluten-free for friends and family.

    1. Thanks, Stephanie! I don’t know if the butter + hot sauce is the only way to make a great buffalo glaze but it is certainly DELICIOUS!!! I hope you like it!
